    alright so this was my first time racing at a drag strip i have done alot of street racing but none at a legal track. but i wanted to know if what i have done to my car is a alright time i got. i pulled a 14.843 at 94.7mph i have cold air intake 3.73's underdrive pullys bbk headers non catted h-pipe and flowmaster cat-back and for suspension i have eibach springs and 3 way adjustable koni shocks. and blad ass 275/40/17, and my tranny is blown i can barly hit second gear and when i do i have to wait for it to grab it. so it that a decent time for a almost stock 94 gt or what. oh and what would it take me to get into the 13's becuse thats my goal right now thanks for all the help guys. :pimp2:

    good runs, the sticky tires will make a nice change in your 60ft and as a result cut that 1320 down

    what were your 60ft times? Some Drag Radial and lower control arms will help after you get the tranny fixed.

    definately!
    with traction and practice you'll cut 4/10's of that....i see guys with DR's and some suspension mods cutting 1.80 60's...now our local track is very sticky....but you can do it.
