    New best

    Took my C5 back to the track last night and made a new personal best for myself. I took it easy the first couple passes to get a feel for the track. On my 3rd pass I ran a best of 11.924 @ 116, with a 1.7 60 ft. Im still on street tires so it was kinda scary since I can feel it spinning most of the way down the track but it stays straight so I kept the pedal mashed. I need to ditch the 19/20 combo and get some DRs.

    Yea, this is only the second time I've raced it. First time I could only get a 12.3.

    LOL "only" a 12.3. For a car that could be daily driven, fo sure. Not like the old days of '60s muscle cars!

    on street tires that time is fantastic..........what mods do you have? Get some DR's under that thing and it should really be tearing it up then.

    Mods include vortech supercharger, fast 90/90, 3000 stall, borla headers and exhaust. The car is very street friendly, pretty much drives like a normal car until you push the pedal to the floor of course.

    ok, that explains a lot. Still excellent time on street tires. DR's should help you out a lot.

    Well yea, Lol. It isn't stock and that's why I said "only 12.3" It will be faster with traction.
