My previous best on a much cooler night was a 14.2 @ 99mph with my 2002 5 speed gt

My mods then were a cai and flowmaster weld ins.

Only mod added since then was a steeda triax..heres the new slip

60" 2.134

1/8" 9.147
mph"79.54

1/4"14.062
mph"100.05

I'm definitely happy with that with my mods.. what do u guys think

good job dude. I like it.

What was your elevation? seems pretty close to sealevel. Im HOPING to run close what you did in the eighth, but ive never raced on a strip.

I'm in orlando so elevation isnt much of a factor here:)


But I think that is as good as it can get with a pretty much stock 2v gt

pretty good for a close to stock car. playing with shift points and maybe shifting practice might get you 13.xx.

i'm taking my car to the track this sat.(1/4mile)now i have something to compare my times with! my car is basically stock as well and my best time in the 8th was a 9.115 but that was my first time ever at a track!

nice times, let me give you some hints on how to run 13.6's all day long with stock tires. First air your front tires up to 45psi, remove the front sway bar, rear seat, spare, and jack. bring the rear tires down to 23psi. Go around the water box and just do a quick tire spin just to get the rocks and dirt off the tires, but NO SMOKE. Bring the rpms up to 4k and slip the clutch out and feather it to keep the tires from spinning. I was cutting 1.79 60ft's with stock tires and wheels and running 13.6's with just a mac catback and pro-5.0 shifter.

street tires are not ment to be deflated. People believe that deflating them increases surface area. this is only true with drag radials. a normal street tire when under infalted will bow and actaully decrease surface area. run 33psi like the door panel says if you have the stock 245/45/17 size tires.

Air Pressure
Are your tires set at the optimum inflation? Chances are they are anywhere from 8psi to 18psi less than recommended. The most common way of damaging tires is improper inflation. Low air pressure causes tires to experience irregular treadwear as well as poor vehicle handling and traction. Under inflated tires can build up excessive heat and blow out without warning.
Keeping your tires set at the manufacturer's recommended pressure is one of the easiest ways of saving gasoline, increasing tire treadlife, and ensuring safety. An Arizona Energy Office Report notes if your tires are inflated to 24psi, and you increase the air pressure to 32psi, your fuel mileage should increase by 3 miles per gallon (an average increase of 10%!)
Always check your air pressure and make adjustments when the tires are cold (tires have not been driven for 2 hours). Air pressure should be checked bi-weekly at the very least. This is important because as outside temperatures change, so does tire air pressure. A 10 degree drop in temperature can reduce tire pressure by 1psi. That means if you set your pressures in the July and don't check them again until December, you could have lost several psi, decreasing fuel mileage and causing pre-mature tire wear. Also remember to check your spare tire for loss of air.
If you are unsure how to use an air pressure gauge and hose, your local tire shop should be willing to show you the correct procedure. Always use a good quality tire pressure gauge that is not on a hose. The tire gauges built into the air hoses at your local garage have generally not been maintained and can not be trusted to be accurate.
*Note, air pressures can be “tuned”, however you should NEVER exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire’s sidewall, and NEVER set pressures lower than recommended in the vehicle’s owners manual. Also, if you have altered your tire size from original, then the minimum pressure may need to be adjusted. Consult a rim/tire professional for correct pressures.

I didnt spin at all..I had my rear tire at 20 psi, went around the water box and just did a quick spin to get the rocks off like whitestang mentioned above.

I hold the rpms at 2 grand and feather it out quickly. I know i could go higher but traction isnt the best at this track. They only spray it one time in the beginning of the night
