    I think alot of people on here must think that everyone can be a gifted driver. For one the guy has an M6, which ain't all that easy to launch.

    Anyways, author, if you wanna run low 11's then do a cam swap, suspension upgrades, minor bolt ons (Like lid and true dual exh.), gears (3.73's), and a 100 shot. The stock suspension sucks ass. At the bare minimum get some lower control arms and a panhard rod. Oh, you'll also need drag radials. Ain't no way you are getting traction with over 500 ft./lbs. of torque to the pavement on street tires. This is just my opinion though. Now Keliente is gonna post about her 1.9 sec. pass on street tires (I HATE YOU, I HATE YOU!!)

    If it makes you feel better (or worse), I pulled consistent low 1.8 60 foot times in my completely bone stock m6 04 gto with the stock all season tires.

    youll need 420rwhp to run low 11s w/ out any weight major reduction.

    easiest and fastest way will be N2O.

    im going for it w/ Cam only, and bolt ons.

    mine is a DD and still getting 26 mpg

    in my opion the ultimate m6 daily driver would be:
    lid - full exhaust- and 100 kit. maybe more gas w/ a wet kit once your comfortable spraying. this also would be an ideal sleeper on the street if you have that gas hidden pretty decent because m6 pull hard from rolls and nitrous and m6 both help your big end.

    my buddies m6 went 11.1 w/ lid full exhast and 125wet- but that was on tires and he spray out the hole and pulled a 1.70 sixty foot.

    my a4 went 11.4 @ 120.1 w/ 1.58 60' with full exhaust 100dry and vig 3200 sprayin the shit out it off the launch.

    both of these cars are on stock suspenion...
    but keep in mind these times are at HRP which is at sea level...

    by the way not to step on any toes but:

    i dont buy this rwhp/ rwtq crap that these guys are sayin.
    every car is completely different depending apon

    weight of the car
    driver
    tires/ suspenion
    altitude
    weather conditions
    and there is a 30 rwhp window that every car comes from the factory - in other words not every motor makes the same exact power.... agree?

    correct.

    cause im only at 343 rwhp and im running high 11s.

    thats why i stated w/ no weight reduction that 420 will get you there. and yes location is key too.

    You could always get a new Z06 and some drag radials and call it good.

    My buddy's 2002 Z06 has gone 11.58 at 119 and the new ones have 100 more ponies...
