What mods do you have? I might be able to get you into the 12.7's...

All my mods are in my signature. CBE, HFC, and G3 intakes are my only power mods.

Just wanted to make sure. It's easy for you to do 12.7. Here's how.
Your mph 109+ shows me a 12.7 car. When you don't have gears, like 4:08's, your engine RPM drops significantly after every shift, that's 2/10's right there. Also when you cross the finish line, you RPM in 4th gear should be close to 7,500 rpm or more. With no gears you're are crossing the finish line, I would guess at 6,600 rpm? By not using all the rpm, & NOT staying in the sweet spot(at highest WHP) you are loosing another 2/10's+ 2/10's. I'm sure your 60' is not in the 1.7, 1.8 range. With a good set of drag radials you can do that.

Soooo, gears & traction will put you in the 12.7's :) Simple!

Simple yes, but not gonna happen. Don't want to spend all that money just to get 0.2 seconds in the 1/4 mile. I'm probably gonna sell the car in a year or so anyway, so I'm pretty much done modding it. Straight line speed is nice, but I'm more trying to see what the Z is capable of in the handling department now.

Z eliminator 02-28-2013 09:21 AM

when i go the track im also the only z there.
i usually take on cars that are a little quicker that me.
it makes it more interesting.
hopefully the track will be open here in 5 to 6 weeks.
one good pass hoping for 12.0's or lower N/A and off to put the SC in with the built engine.
Then we should see some good low 11's.
will have a few parts for sale then.
I miss Jnaut too, any body heard what he is up to these days.

I remember him saying something about getting a CTS-V and then later like a GT-R I think. Haven't heard from him in a while.

You got into the 12's without any mods. That's amazing!

When I eliminate the top 2 cars (because they are out of whack from the norm) from the modify list, the times of the moded/modified cars are almost the same as the stock class. That's just weird. Why is that so? Why spend thousands???:confused:

my car is definitely faster than the times I posted but with the mods I'd added it is a lot more fun than stock.

He's doing well. He's still got his '07 RS4 and a few other toys but he's buried in work at his shop.

Bastard! Jk, good time bro! :icon17:

Apparently my lack of LSD appears to be ruining my ability to get a good launch, even after an Uprev Tune and new PSS tires. My best run that day was 13.15 @ 108 mph, but I hit the rev limiter shifting from 2nd to 3rd. My other 2 runs for the day were only worse.
