Okay i'm still got plenty to improve on. I still think I can get low 10's. Here is todays time

60' 1.8
330' 4.5
1/8 6.9 at 103
1/4 10.6 at 122

My speed was slower today but better 1/4 et if I can just work on my start I think low 10's... I lauched soft, and actually let off prior to going through the traps.

What kind of power are you putting down?

Your car looks like it pulled pretty hard after you got out passed the 60 ft lights....nice run.
But what happened in the near lane?...he must have missed a shift or something....13 sec Corvette?

Thats exactly what happened. I eased it off the line (need more seat time..lol) then hammered it, and actually let off prior to going through the traps...to learn the I actually needed to run it through the traps. So I feel I have enough room to improve to get me to the low 10's.

Nice run, I think with some tuning of the caltracs you could have a much better 60 ft time. On my drag mustang I run a 1.7 on a 10"slick with 300hp. That is with leaf springs and slappers, my custom front suspension for improved weight transfer and a 5000rpm launch. It pulls the front wheels off the ground.

Good luck!
