    Unhappy Disappointed

    I still need to run it at the track, but my friends took his Passport G-Timer g meter in my car and the best time I could get is 13.57 at 104. Thats even after long tubes and true duals.

    what are your mods?, if your stock those aren't bad numbers, also what tranny do you have?

    mods are listed....LTs and TDs and I'm 6 speed.

    Its almost like I'm lacking power down low....I sort of bogged a little both times but when I stab it in low rpms it doesnt even want to loose traction like it used to (but that was also with 245s....i have 285s now)

    with those mods you are running slow, try cleaning your MAF if you havent already. You should be at 107-109 mph. Only thing i can say is take it to the track and see what it'll do there, if you dont have a tune yet do that first before taking it there. I dont know alot about Passport G-Timer g meter and how accurate they are so cant really comment on that. Also if you havent done this either get it on the dyno and get the A/F, but ive seen people without a tune with your set up not have issues running faster. Either way GL and let us know if your times improve

    well ,remember, the street is not as sticky as a race track.

    you should pick up a few tenths at the track

    i would agree, but like i said i didnt even lose traction....which doesnt seem right to me (even on 285s)

    i wouldn't worry too much about it until you actually run it at the track, those devices aren't always accurate
