What are your mods? Depending on what you have done, I may or may not catch you. I'm gonna go for 12.4s this Friday.

mods in the sig. But if your on a mobile device: Heads, Cam, stock stall and stock gears. Hoping to get in the 11.9X's this weekend with my new drag pack (GTO Front Runners and GTO 17's with DR's). Ran a 12.1 @ 118.48 last time out. Should have some mineshaft air this weekend! Weather to be 50 and sunny....Cant wait!

just a little friendly smack talk, all in fun . NICE car BTW!!! Hopefully you guys get a good turn out to represent the G8's!!!

We usually get 2-3 G8s at the track on a good night. And about 10-15 5th gen camaros. Haaa. I'm hoping for good d.a, we will see how it goes. Gonna drive the piss out of this thing. :-)

Tune is the same, not much more I can get out of it with the camaro intake tube being my only engine mod. I am counting on the D.A and temperature to be someone what optimal. When I ran my 12.6@111, it was in the low 70s, high 60s, and d.a was 1800 ft.

Yeah. Is your rear end 3.70 ? Cause I hear the gt a6 with 2.92 that 1st gear is lower than an m6 with 3.70.

well we touched up the tune and from 6500 to 7000 rpm all i lose is 3 horsepower. must be the big heads and large lsa of the cam. 224/236
646/646 117 lsa. then i just got back today from top gear motorsports where we replaced the balancer with the ati. nice piece. but the vibration came back. Sean from Top Gear put it on the rack. unbelievable. same axle is wobbling. G Force is going to send Sean the axle as they do not trust the dealership in Tucson. So I am down for two weeks. With new hoosiers I will shoot for 11.6 in a few weeks.

AZ Central.com (dragstrip to close April 1) stay tuned for more drama on that.
