1st quarter mile pass
Just got home from atlanta dragway in commerce ga. Was my 1st time ever running my car in the 1/4 mile, usually just hit up the local 1/8 mile tracks. Was only able to get 1 pass in due to the rain, but i gotta say, i'm pretty impressed with how my car performed on street tires for it's 1st pass of the season, and pretty much it's 5th pass on this motor, still not being fully tuned yet as well.
Pass was on 10 year old riken raptor 255's on stock impala wheels
Like i said, this being my 1st pass of the season, i short shifted probably every gear. Had to make sure the motor could stay together. My car will run 88 in 3rd and 115 in 4th, but i hit 4th before the end of the 8th and was in 5th well before the end of the quarter so i was doing some major short shifting. I think with a nice set of drag radials and not short shifting the car should 60' high 1.7's/low.8's and mph in the 105-107 range, that should be put me comfortabley in the 12's right?
