    First time at the track!

    I decided to take my z28 out the track earlier for the first time. Best time was a 13.32 105.46 and took out a 9 second car mods are gmmg chambered exhaust, air box, and composite MAF. Also it is an A4. Is this a good time for my first day?

    Sounds good at low 13s especially first time out
    Few more mods and you can say you daily drive a 12 second car.

    Did the car spin off the line?

    My 1/8th on this run was a 8.701 and that was my best. I'm working on getting some longtubes and gears. I have stock gears right now but looking to upgrade. I didn't spin barely at all just a little screech.

    Your stock gears are 2.73 or 3.23?

    Gu2=2.73
    Gu5=3.23 - if you got these then i believe you should also have an aluminum driveshaft

    check the door codes (RPO Codes)

    Gears don't make to big of a difference down the quarter, but still nice time on the 2.73s for what ya got

    Yeah i just thought they would be a nice cheap investment. They don't cost too much I don't think, and thanks for the help finding them!

    if you put 3.73s in the car its a huge difference in the quarter i'd say 2.73 to 3.73 and drag radials easy half sec.

    I mean 2.73 to 3.23 is not a big difference in the 1/4

    A stall is more beneficial, if it were me i would say wait and do both with a decent tune at the same time
