Talking Ran 12's My First Time Ever at a Drag Strip - Stock

Went to the drag strip today for the first time ever and I was completely blown away by my results. My first ever run was in the 12's with a bone stock 7AT. Here's my time slip for the run:



Everything just went perfect that time. Launch was good, shifting (with paddles) was good. It was at Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, MD and the temperature was around 45-50*. Here are my other results for the day:

1st: 12.986 s @ 107.46 mph
2nd: 13.470 s @ 107.71 mph
3rd: 13.216 s @ 106.36 mph
4th: 13.468 s @ 106.83 mph
I have an album posted with the full time slips for each run.

Launching at 1500 RPM seemed to work best, it gave me my 2 best runs of the day. I think I could have done better with a few more runs, but I had to leave.

Holy sh!t!

Great run

I can't believe the stock auto is capable of 12's -- awesome!

That might be the best bone stock time.

Very, very impressive. Great job.

What shift points were you using?

I was aiming at something between 7000 and 7500 rpm. Not consistent by any means and I couldn't really tell you anything more exact than that. I was too in the moment, lol

Thanks guys. I hope with some more practice I can do a little better.

Wow!
That is great to hear!
I know Nissan's auto trans are better than their manuals.
Great time good to see that not only the stangs can run 12's stock!

Just imagine if you had a Supercharger or TT!

OMG I'm so not ready for FI yet, I think that's way too much power for me to handle, I'm still pretty inexperienced when it comes to rwd and sports cars. I've only had one for 2 months. The auto transmission is pretty amazing though. With better tires + messing with tire pressures + a little weight reduction, I could make some real improvements. The track conditions and weather would have to be just as good though.

You did in one run what I've been trying to do for years. Congrats again. Time for some mods so you can run 11's lol.

Looks like you need to get some paddle shifters man, lol just kidding. Trust me man, if I had money for mods, they would already be on my car

I have a question..

How do you launch the 7AT?

VDC off
Power brake at 1500rpm
Manual shifting mode, shift point near redline

like this?

That's exactly what I did. Found out it worked best at 1500 RPM. I don't know if it's actually called something else, but I feel like launch fits well.
