Yea the car might be a bit slow for this crowd and I have no experience at the drag strip........but we all have to start somewhere.



Thanks for the kind welcome.

Congrats on the purchase:)

Verts are heavier than the T and HT roofed cars,therefore a little slower.

Whats your tracks altitude? and what was the temperature that day?

What was your 60ft time? Auto or M6?

Lots of questions LOL :)

I was racing that night too. My friend had my video camera and taped about 7 of your runs but only two of mine before the battery died. What was your best pass?

14.3 :mad:
But it was my 1st time at a drag strip (as a driver) and i tryed a few things ie: with tc....w/o tc.....stall....no stall....let the car shift then i would shift it and so on.

OK this is kind of embarrassing but it is the truth.....the best run was the first one i did,with tc on and let the car shift its self.
worst run no tc i shift (and spun out like mad) .....um..here it is ...sad...15.2.....hangin my head low.
I will understand if i'm asked to leave the site now.

Don't worry about it. There are other LS1s running similar times - especially on there first time out. I've seen lots of high 14s and low 15s LT1s too. You'll obviously improve. What were your 60's and trap speed?

You should have came out on Friday. Our F-Body club was the guest club for the Friday street legal. There was about 5 other LS1s running.

Are you going to be coming back this year for a 13s timeslip? Any mods planned?

What were you shifting at? And you said the first run was with your traction control on? Were you doing any kind of a burnout? Did you drive around the water box or through it? How did you launch?

Just trying to see if there are any little things that can help you out...:cool:
