Well, I finally got around to running my Mach 1. First run on street tires was hilarious, 14.7@101mph with a 2.5' 60 foot, still faster than my old 5.0L :(. Bolted my ET Drags on, intantly dropped a second lol. I ran a 13.9 (missed 3rd gear), 13.8 (missed 3rd gear again) and a 13.7(hit all gears). Trap speed on those 3 runs were 100, 99 and 101 respectively. Being this was the 2nd time (and first real time running with good slicks) I was being very careful not to screw anything up, considering I daily this car everyday. My best 60' on the slicks was a 1.8 launching at 3.7k-ish, but missed 3rd(was the 13.8 pass). My best run was the [email protected], cut a 1.9' 60 though, launched at 3k. Was also humid as hell that day, track sucked, and no one was running good. I'm going up again on August 26th and I'm going to try launching harder with it, and I need practice shifting, This 3650 shifts way differently than my old T5. If I can run consitant times with it, I'm entering the Street legal bracket class next year. My goal is to get a 13.3-13.1 without touching the engine, so I'm going full tubular front end and getting skinnies eventually for it, then Procharging when I want more power. Here are the few pics and my other pass, this was the 3.7K launch that cut me a 1.8'.


Before people say my car should run faster, I know it can, at sea level, I'm at 1500 feet elevation. For comparison, 2010 Mustang GTs were running 14.4/14.3 all night and a 2010 SS camaro was running 13.6 all night.

i miss my mach 1 :( but mine ran 11's :)
Haha I wish, mine is basically bonestock, longtubes, 4.10s, and a CAI. Factor in my crappy elevation=crappy times. I was happy though, I kicked an old 80s notch 5.0L that sounded VERY close to my old 94, felt good. Sad thing is, I can't hear my car in any of the videos, it's too quiet!!!

Nice! I can see you getting some 13.0's in when it's cold and once you get your 60' down a bit more!

I'm going with an o/r X and Borla Stingers, love that sound, reminds me of the GT500s at work. Crappy thing was, I was going up for my last pass, let my car cool down for 15, temp went down from 25 to about 18/19*C, and then some dodge blew up on the top end and ended the day! Guys are telling me to launch at 5k, but I don't feel like snapping an axle lol.
