    Well I decided to go the track tonight with a few of my buddies. Thought I would get some times before I get my l/t's and Prochamber on. All I got is 4.10 gears(auto). It was a street race event that the local track put so the light drops at any given moment :noes: Here are my numbers.


    1.1796-reaction
    2.2046-60
    9.7475-1/8t
    73.73-trap speed

    Any ideas what this would be in the 1/4 mile?

    Forget where I came across this link, but it was fairly close for me. According to the chart, it would be approx 15.3 in the 1/4. The 60' is hurtin' you there.

    It felt like I was getting grip but I might have been slipping.

    well that 60 is weak, but you do have a automatic so thats not helping any :-\ what you need is drag radials and a stall ( 2400 -2800 would be good ) those things would cut a few tenths off that 1/8 time.
