Ran my first pass!!
Went to Cecil Dragway on Friday and ran 3 passes, including my virgin run!!!
I have Lt's (running open) free mods, volant intake ws6store shifter, and new ls7 clutch.
My virgin run I ran a 13.3x @108 mph
The second run I ran 13.14 @110
And the third run was a 13.28 @110
My 60 ft times were pretty much 2.2, but I got a 2.195 on my 13.14 run!!! r/t wasn't that bad either...all around .25 or so...hey, it was my first time. I was reacin on the 3rd light and it was still fast as hell haha.
I'm pretty happy with it for my virgin run. Now I need to get my exhaust done and get her tuned and I think I can break into 12's

what kind of tires do you have i think your 60' should be lower?

With practice you will improve your 60' time . You already have a 12 second car. Just need to improve your 60' . Simple as that .

put a set of DR's on it and you will run 12's

nice times-- looks like I need some LTs-- Your 60 ft suck like mine (no offense)- but my best is 13.66 and you are 13.1.
LT/ cut out = .5 + tires = 12s
what is the track altitude there?

and sticky tires = 12's = new rear I think with more practice I can get a better r/t and 60 ft though!

Thats not to say I recommend it,,,as a matter of fact he was always a little nervous at the track with the car just because......
I had one of those 10 bolt rears let go while upshifting for 3rd gear, and took the transmission with it,,,going at a pretty good clip in an 11 second car and I nearly put it into the wall Never again will a sticky tire go on a car with a 7.5 10 bolt if I'm driving it...

thats a good looking run for your 1st time you should get it in the 12 prity quick the take off is always what is going to get you going around the whater box and a quick spin to clean off the rubber is the right thing to do with street tires you can let some air out to and thay will stick beter i just wouldnt go much past 20 psi. the way i take off in my ta is to just roll on the gas not to stomp it after some practis you will find the sweet spot so you dont bog or spin. keep us posted on how you do im like firebirdjones i wish we had the condisons like what you have
