Again this was a last minute thing for me going up to the track that night... I didn't plan ahead that I was going to go... I left after work with a bunch of reptile supplies in my trunk and met up with my boy who rode with me down the track... So between him, full tank of gas & trunk full of garbage That will hurt my time majorly...

I really couldn't get traction for shat either which is going to severely effect my time and 60ft... Like Cayse said... there are a bunch of ST's with the same mod or so running much faster... So another trip to the track (or better track) is definitely due...

When I raced my friend in the LT1... My car was completely clean... no garbage in the trunk and I was only running with a 1/4-1/8 tank of gas, and I was by myself so my car was much lighter as well and it wasn't near the slaughtering that I gave to the 305 firebird at the track... I only had him by about 3/4's of a car length but this was probably the equivilant to an 1/8 mile run...

Either way... It was a really good time and I can't wait to go back and race some more! I do need to start doing more mods though because it's really pathetic rocking only the intake... LOL
