went racing last night
Went to Lebanon Valley last night. I ran better than last time, but still a little disappointed. I got 4 runs in, temp was 65-70 degrees with 90%+ humidity. Mods are a lid and magnaflow catback, running Fuzion ZRi's 275/40-17 with about 50% tread
1/8: 9.146 @ 81.2mph
1/4: 13.936 @ 102.79mph
1/8: 9.100 @ 81.45mph
1/4: 13.874 @ 103.40mph
1/8: 8.985 @ 82.63mph
1/4: 13.710 @ 104.31mph
1/8: 9.082 @ 82.65mph
1/4: 13.787 @ 104.93
I know my 60' times suck balls, but if I were to cut it down to a 2.1 or 2.0 what would I expect for times? I was launching from 2,000rpm.
Did the humidity effect my time? My last best was a 13.86 @ 105mph with a 2.4 60' (was my first time ever drag racing a track) and the temps were 50 degrees and 60% humidity.
Any help/tips/input would be greatly appreciated!

So the old PP held your motor together after all. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
So we need more details. Are you still spining @ 2000 grand out of the gate?
You drove around the water and did a VERY small burnout right?
What gear you got in the ?Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

It sure did! Engine ran great all night
I drove around the water and did a small burnout (lasted about a second or two)
I experimented with a couple launches, two at 1,500 and two at 2,000. My last run (the 13.78) I launched at 2k and spun a bit through first gear, but from my point of view it didn't seem like it was a 2.4 60'
All the other runs, it seems like the car FEELS good off the line, but it doesn't translate to the paper.
I have no idea what gears I have in the , how do I check?
I honestly think I might just be bogging the engine off the line. How might I go about practicing?

Also, would anyone happen to have any or know where to find in-car videos of any stockish LS1's from the drag strip?

Well the saying goes basically for every tenth you drop in the 60ft. you'll drop 2 tenths off your ET. So if your running 13.8's with a 2.3 60ft. and 2.1 would be around 13.4, and a 2.0 would be 13.2

ah yes, I was hoping someone would post a "rule of thumb"
i suppose practice makes perfect!
does the rest of my times look ok? (1/8 mile, trap speeds, ect)

Try launching from a idle.
Also I would hit up a local junkyard and get a set of V-6 springs. They should be $40-60 and will be one of the best investments you can make.
Once you change out those springs it will help to un-do the end links on the front sway bar which will allow for more front end travel which ='s better weight transfer.
I would take a sharpy and mark that bolt you are removing for the end links and take a cut off wheel on a dia. grinder or a hack saw and cut off the excessive threads that way it is quicker to remove next time.

I was hoping to try and get the best times with what I've currently got in the car, as I don't have any major plans for it.
When I first went to the track, I launched from an idle all night and only managed a best of 13.86 @ 105, but that was with a 2.43 60'. I didn't spin the tires off, it just didn't get up and go like I wanted it to.
