We finally got a set of E/T Streets to run on. This is only my 4th time at the track & my very 1st time on slicks.(Definitely Different)
I was only able to make 2 runs before being kicked out of the track(No Roll Bar) If we had been able to make more runs I think I would have become more comfortable, & we would have been able to dial in the best Tire Pressure & RPM to launch at. Clutch pedal was still sticking in the down position sporatically & I was short-shifting the car around 6200. Although both runs were similar, the better of the two was 11.59 @ 120.60 MPH w/ 1.8 60'. Timeslips are below. The Best MPH on Street Tires we had from a few weeks ago was 123.76 MPH.
We will be re-programming the Stock Computer & replacing the Slave-Cylinder/ Throw out Bering with one from McLeod this week. Hopefully this will help. ??
There is definitely more left in this car.
If anyone can enlarge the slips for me I would appreciate it. Thx.

I am knew to the site so I apologize if I am bring something up that has been dicussed. The impression I got is that you ran the 11:59 run with a stock Z06 with the drag race tires. No other modifications to stock. Is that correct?
I have a Black on Black Z06 on order to be delivered in March.

Ric, I'm not sure of the widths or price, because John H. ordered them, I'm just using them for track testing. I ran skinnies in the frt. I think the knuckle on the rear Control Arm needed a little bit taken off (filed down), but nothing major 20 minutes work..
