    I'm your Huckleberry. I think, cool down, ice down, sticky mickeys, good air, right time...manual trans, driver mod, I think 10.9, MAYBE.... Maybe 10.8. MPH definitely 145. Edit: forget all those changes..just turning the AC off and not dripping condensate in front of the rear tires, 11.4, no MPH change.

    Yeah, why not?

    And while we are playiong WHAT IF... I think, cool down, ice down, sticky mickeys, good air, right time... I think 11.3, MAYBE.... Maybe 11.2. There. Bench race gauntlet laid down. Dare someone else to predict a better time!
  8. 2010 Camaro SS

    I say keep wondering. You seem intent on not running it to its full potential and instead like to know the REAL WORLD results. Nothing wrong with that! Plus, you get to bench race like a mofo after the fact. Yeah, I went 11.7 but car was HOT HOT HOT and I had skaterbacks and AC on and TC on and J.Lo's booty in the trunk. And less chance of breaking parts this way too.

    Nah man he knows his stuff sure but doesnt mean all hope is lost. Once we get moved in, the old house gone and things somewhat back to normal Im gonna start exploring my options for sure. I need a space to work. Speaking of which, the old garage is now cleared out and the walls blasted with white to try and cover up the filth I collected over the years. Bittersweet. Not so much the garage, packing, moving, cleaning and painting it up was as much a pain in the ass as the entire rest of the house. Im over it now BUT alot of good (and semi substandard) stuff went on in that garage...its got the stained floors to show. Once I figure out what Im doing at the new place and set up shop Ill be over it! Oh...hopefully it keeps raining and noone says anything about the stains on the asphalt in the driveway LOL Matt

    Yeah Im not sure whats going on. My Bro-inlaw who builds houses looked at it and didnt seem to think it would be a worth-while adventure to try and mess with but who knows. The "attic" is open above the car but to the left of it they put some plywood down. Hell theres a damned window up there too and a door. They must have had some future plans for it but Im scratching my head as to what those might have been and why they stopped where they did. Matt

    Well, if they're trusses I don't know why the beam was needed/wanted. If only to stiffen the trusses only one glulam would do it, but there are two side by side (instead of sandwiched like recommended.) Or maybe they wanted to store massive amount of weight in the middle of the "attic" If they're trusses, and you get some time, do some research on their specs to see if the beam and center posts could come out. But, that's a lot of effort and MONEY (glulam $6 per foot) to put in for no reason...

    Quit wondering and asking and find out!!!!! Get a set of 17's and meet me at Disneys and you will have plenty of traction to find out exactly what your car is made of (and how much fun traction is!!!!!!!!). I went from running 8.0-7.9's on Continentals spinnng off the line, short shifting 2nd, spinning then chirping 3rd to inconsistent 7.9's with the occasional 7.8 with slightly less spin on Nittos to back to back to back 7.5's with these ET Street R's. Being yours is an Auto Im betting these Nitto's would do the trick for you as well and you could run them on the streets, but Ide happily sell either one and let you taste traction. Oh and those 7.5's were in 90* weather, higher DA, hot lapping and sitting in the lanes idling tho never with the AC on thats a big no-no and sure to make you unpopular for dripping down the track. Im betting in cooler weather it woulda been in the 7.3's so even bigger gain over the Continentals. Ive got both tires sitting in the shed and either one would give you bigger gains than any other single mod. Traction is goooooooooooooooooooood. Dont blah blah blah about needing a new rear end first, get the grip, let it rip...if it breaks, THEN get a new rear end. Matt
  13. Random thought thread

    Yeah kinda crazy. Return on 9th day and call it good. This is one of the owners profile. Still haven't found it and they say the suspect is MS-13.

    What do you think it'll run on a DR or Slick with TC off? Keep in mind, I never shut off the engine, so it was nice and hot from idling in the staging lanes. Much like the day I ran it on one of the hottest most humid days of the year to 11.9 @ 117, I idled in the staging lanes with the AC on. So these runs are real world. All season street tire, TC on, no ice bags, no cool downs. Run hot....

    Disney, you need to buy this car.
  18. ITSnolongerASIX 1966 Mustang

    I don't know much bout buildings but they appear to be trusses. The car is back as far as I can get it to keep it out of the weather and the middle beam in about at the dash. If the poles weren't there dividing each bay you could MAYBE put a lift like Disney's in the back corner between the middle beam and back wall but nooooooo. Matt
  19. I'm impressed by every aspect, especially the guts of the entire drivetrain at those TORQUE levels. Monster torque. Supercharged. Converter multiplication. 4:1 first gear. And the inertia of 4500 lbs. WOW.

  21. Post your best slips and video!

    Wasn't that the whole purpose, to wear out a set of slicks?
  22. Random thought thread

    Saw this on FB over the weekend. Still haven't gotten the car back apparently. The doc my wife works for actually rents his Teslas out through their company. I'd be a little concerned after this incident.
  23. The CTSV converter is I think an 1800rpm stall speed. Which is a couple hundred higher than a stock camaro or G8 converter in the 6L80e. The big helper is that 1st gear is 4.027:1. That combined with the big torque of at PD blower is what gets these 4500lb barges moving.
  24. "Pretty decent". That's ridiculous. 1.3 stock converter. Putting Precision Industries out of business!
  25. It will go faster with e85. I can’t hit it with much timing down low on 93. The guys that have tried aftermarket converters usually break everything behind the trans. The fastest 6L90 car runs an 8.97@155 with a 1.37 60’ still full weight and still with a stock converter. It's pretty decent.
  26. So you are in agreement with me how ridic that 60' is. Stock gear, stock converter, no weight reduction. etc. etc. There were tubbed out 5K rpm converter cars back in the day that couldn't 60 like that!
