13.3 @ 112 mph
 
got the car to the track last weekend...

here's the three best times I got.

my car was # 722, very happy with the trap speed but a little disappointed with the ET since I was hoping to break into 12s with street tires.

for those who don't know about my car

Nice times, you need to go to St.Thomas and you'll get a better 60 foot.

I ran a 13.2 as well at 112MPH at cayuga, I find Cayuga to be pretty bad for the first gear, i can't seem to hook up at all. Even with my new PS2's

Now at st thomas, i was able to hook up my first, best 60 foot I had was 2.0 but I spin through the entire second gear, I don't know if that part of the track was wet that day as it was my first time there.

never been to st thomas... where is it? is it farther or closer than cayuga?

If you live in toronto its farther. St Tomas is near London.

I live in mississauga and it takes me a full extra hour to get to st.thomas, and I personally find cayoga's track to be better condition then st.thomas.

It was a drag Camaro

London is pretty damn far, took us forever to get there but the nice thing was that I was able to do a TONE of runs, they go pretty fast and it was a Street legal Friday night so no drag cars around.

Condition wise, I find both tracks to be pretty good, cayuga may be a little more modern then st. thomas but I'm pretty sure St. Thomas is a faster track.

I forgot to mention b4, props on the ride, your in e39 m5 territory with those runs.
Sleeeeeper!

You could pull a 12 with some practice, you could get the 60' under 2 seconds and make up for it there.

It might happen with slicks or better street tires not with cheapy tires I'm running now.

I dunno man, I think you can do it. If my brother can cut 2.0 flat 60' times in a turbo ford festiva on a all season, i'm sure you can do it in a e30.

I think I can cut to 2.0 60' too, just need some more practice runs to find the sweet spot for launching the car.
