I don't know how you guys are pulling the numbers you arte posting but up here in Morrison Colorado in the Rockys I am not even close to your numbers.

My Z is mildly modded with Stillen CAT back, HFCs, and CA intake and my best time is 14.8 @ 93.11 mph and my best run was 14.9 @ 99.77 mph.

On my time slip I am car # 152 and the other car I am racing is a 94 Mustang GT that is heavily modified with Drag slicks and I am barely beating him.

The 5300ft elevation must be really robbing my ETA.

Yup, that's why it's nice to record DA numbers with these results as well. You can get an reasonably accurate DA for most tracks here by plugging in your track + date + time (or raw altitude / weather data if they don't list your track): DA Calculator - Density Altitude Calculator - DragTimes.com

Your 60' times are really bad, and yeah, that altitude is killing your power.

I think the only thing more surprising about the fact that you're barely beating that Mustang GT, is that he bothered to put slicks on that thing. It must be stock at best.

Actually his engine is "built" He has a 3/4 race cam, GT-40 Intake and Heads, full length Headers, no Cats. My Car is nearly dead even with that Stang! We are dead even until the last 300 ft which is where I pulled him 3 car lengths. He hooks up better than I do which is no suprize since he's running slicks.

Thanks for the Calculator! I put in the figures and if that race was at Sea Level it would be 13.32 seconds @ 111 mph which was what I would expect. My car is also not tuned and that would improve it even more.

About my track time, Give me a break, it was the first time I ever drag raced my car.

Just an FYI:

What's a 3/4 Race Cam?
In the early 1950's the most popular original camshaft designers were the legendary Ed Winfield, the father of hotrodding, and Cliff Collins of Harman-Collins. If you look a Huntington's 1951 book you will find the specs for their cams listed. We've also listed some of their cams on our Flathead Performance Cams page. There were lots of cam grinders that copied Winfield and Harman-Collins cams, but these two were the designers and innovators in the early days. It was popular to refer to cams as a 1/2 Race or Semi grind and a Full Race grind. Later, there was a call for an intermediate grind between these two. To fill this demand, Ed Winfield took the intake lobe from his full race cam and the exhaust lobe from his semi cam and called it a 3/4 Race cam (see Flathead Performance Cams). It was literally half way between a full race and 1/2 race cam. Since that time, 3/4 Race has become a generic term for a high performance street cam, i.e. something less than a race cam.


Granted, its an old outdated dated term in relation to our Zs but I find myself using it to generally describe a hotter than stock cam. I really dont know what cam Pat has in his Stang but it has a pretty mean, lumpy idle.

BTW, Thumbs up for the Monterey Blue Z! I have only seen 1 other MB Z in the Denver Metro area rolling this color. I get tons of compliments on the color and 4 people have actually asked me for the paint code.

you must pay to play I guess... Im guessing bad throw out bearing??? May buy the upgraded CSC if they do not cover it... fingers crossed for warranty though, I have a great relationship with my Nissan service department... but with a going to the track and in my case the fidanza flywheel be aware you could break things.. as me and jnaut have broken some ish just NA .... ugh , I am still on stock clutch... debating upgrading that now but I can not continue to dump money into her when I have other things to worry about in my life

Very True!, but I like to shift my Z. It just wouldnt be the same experience to just have to mash the pedal and go. BTW ZEliminator - I want some feed back on that GTM Stage 2 Supercharger you are buying. Thats what my Z needs up here in this high altitude. The Stage 1 kit just wasnt going to do much for me up here.

I have to say I learned a lot up at Bandimere last weekend. I saw a brand new stock 5.0 Mustang Convertable pull a 13.8 @ 105mph which shocked me! Ford did something right for a change. What really suprized me was a 2005 350Z with an STS turbo only pull 15.6 @ 87 mph! At first I thought he botched the run which I did a couple of times myself but after 2 more runs he was +/- a couple of 10ths from that time.
