I had the beast out at the track for the first time this year (I live in Minnesota). This winter I added some goodies that paid off. Best part of the day was that I broke into the 11's and spanked a GT500 and my buddys 2010 Camaro :D

Here are some details:

Track weather - 60 degrees and cloudy
My Set-up
- Steeda CAI and Evolution Performance 93 Octane Tune
- ARH Headers, x-pipe, Magna flow street exhaust
- UPR - Upper and lower control arms, pan hard bar
- Barton Shifter
- Nitto Drag Radials (275/40/17)

Nice to see the Rock's up and running. Congrats on the 11's, not a whole lot of people doing that NA.
Thanks man, I enjoy heading out to the Rock. The track was in good shape but because of temps I really couldn't launch it like I wanted. I think I have a couple more tenths I can get out of it.

Yeah, his best time of the day was 11.84. He had the same problem we all were having...getting a good 60ft.

What I didn't show you was we raced 5 times, I won 3 and he one 2 with one of my wins coming from his system shutting down at half track on a critical failure. He could only idle to the end of the track and had to let it cool for about 30 minutes before it would go.

This is why I'm jealous of you all and saving up now for a 5.0. My girl is wanting me to get one so bad so I might grab one after I graduate.

Nice runs man. You 5.0 guys have it made :p

Hey '11 5.0 hows the wheel hop since you installed the Upper and lower control arms, pan hard bar???
I launched as hard as the track would allow and I had no wheel hop. It made a huge difference because before it would hop all over the place on hard launches.

Thanks man, with manufacturers upping the ante when you are ready they'll have something even better. You got to love muscle car wars!
