I spent a few days with some racing friends up in Jersey. We all cruised out to Island dragway last Sunday where I got my first 1/4 track experence. I have been to a 1/8 mile track once before, so I knew what I was doing somewhat. Last run of the day I pull this: 12.6 @ 110

The car is pure stock using the stock tires with 12000 miles on it. I was amazed that I got 12.6. I had been pulling 12.9 @ 109 - 12.7 @ 112 before that, but I didnt think I would beat 12.7.

I just knew it was gonna be an awesome run about 1 second into it. The tires gripped almost at let go. Its like that feeling when you hit a baseball and knows its gonna be a homer. I truely do think this car is capiable of 12.5 pure stock and I plan to prove it. hehe

Launched at 2500 rpm and shifted at 6500.

Nice time......

I live in NJ and can't wait for my 2002 so I can take it to Raceway Park and see what time I can pull.

Nice run.

Prove GM wrong, they always seem to under-rate their cars. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Do you really have 12000 miles already? Did you mean 1200? Anyway, very good. My best so far is 12.7, at a track that is known to be slow (Beaver Springs PA).
