    well first off id like to say

    1. I sleep at the lights
    2. I had a full tank of gas (POS gas Gauge)
    3. I never launched, i tried it once from 2,000RPM but i heard this loud Knock, and didnt do it again.
    4. i ran 6 times, but the 2nd run isnt showing up on the scanner i will just type it out.
    5. on the 4th run, i raced a is350 and i beat him bad but for some reason it says i didnt, i even beat him bad on the launch WTF

    so im not too happy right now..my car is a slow pig.


    1st race. Me vs. a 06 Silverado with an STS turbo kit on it w/ slicks)

    you have some nice 60'....you must have shifted too early or sumthing on the 4th run, because it wasnt near as well as the others.

    Ok so you got a 8.40 thats a good starting point. Looking at your 60ft time, I think you can cut .2 off it and that would get you some 8.20's

    yea its not bad at all, 8.40's is getting on down the track.......Paul needs to get those 60ft times down a little more and he can get 8.20's out of it for sure.

    i tried launching it at 2 grand it something clunked. it was a decently loud clunk and it only happened once..maybe if i get som full length sub frame connectors that will help. the tires were at 16 PSI

    well it was good for a first time Paul, you might have had a touch too much air in the drags but its cool. Nice numbers bro, you ran in the mid 80mph in the 1/8th :thumb:

    Don't beat yourself up man,that's not bad for your first time....and the degrading trap times aren't your fault,you have to remeber that you were jumping back in the box within ten minute at a time,with barely any time for cool down....you can see the blower heat soak taking it's toll out on your mph. It's typical for kb'd 5.0's to do. Like I said,I've been there too man. It's going to take some time,and your 60's were about right,with practice you can see 1.80's....so don't get jaded.

    lol...look at it this way,hitting it means that you're planting it.......it could also be a few other things like your motor mounts,exhaust pipes,or best of all.......your tranny mount.hahah I'm on my 5th :mad:
