    Friend of mine ran a 14.8 or around there. It was probably 95 degrees out, his car was pinging. He had NO second gear and pretty bald tires. Cant be more then 400ft elevation. His car had equal length shorties, gutted stock mid pipe, flows, 3.73s, underdrives, half a CAI, and it was was lowered.


    So im guessing since you are considering DRs around 14.6-14.8 with the mods you got :dunno: have fun man let us know how you and your buddy do.

    I'm running around 375hp and at this altitude I run real slow but I can't put any of my hp to the ground. Just enjoy the "high" that you get from racing and work from there. You'll never be the fastest car at the track..... unless you're "Truuble"... :pimp2:

    well my 60'times were 2.2

    my trap speed was 91.27

    i weighed it in and it hit the scales at 3680 with me in the car :D and the motors all stock internally that i know of with a 180k so needless to say im pretty impressed with my starting point ...oh and i let the car shift itself no manual shifting ;D
