    I ran a 12.9 @ 107 w/ a 1.9 60ft with a lid, headers, exhaust, and untuned on MT's... so hitting 12s shouldn't be to hard.

    Shouldnt be too hard.

    Sounds like you need a better tuner and maybe some different tires. My Hawk ran a 1.9 sixty and a 12.9@106 on street tires. Only mods are PS headers, exhaust, Lid and a good tune. What was your 60 again?

    I have my stockers,ZR1's, Telstars with skinnys and slicks, and the CCW's. Just saying the 18's are a lot of sprung weight...

    Better to wait until later in the year. Fall is a real nice time to spend weekends at the track. Cooler air, fewer cars, and real nice scenery. Fly into Williamsport or Harrisburg and we'll come pick you up.

    3.73's work well with an A4. I have those in a Moser 12 bolt and they are great on both the street and track -- highway rpm is still very reasonable.

    I agree 3.73's work well with the A4. I will say I would save for a stonger diff first. But I know many that put 3.73's in the 10. Some last for awhile others break the first time they down a strong run..

    So true... The best way to find out, take it to the track and get a slip..

    With good traction (2.0 60 ft. time or better), yes. Then if you don't, a stall will do it.

    Where did you get your LS6 intake, and how much? I want one....

    With my 2.73s I was cutting 2.05-2.08s consitently and only getting a 13.51-13.56.....lol

    Hoping the 2.73s will help out a bit. If I can hook I want at least a 1.95 or better 60 foot and not sure how much they will help on the back part of the track. Gears should be here this week though.
