Is this time good?
 
i was wondering if 10.926 seconds, with R/T of .367 good for 1/8th of a mile? I have automatic 01 ZX3, with intake, ezhaust, and header

Ur looking at around a 17 second 1/4 so if its ur first time, its about average i would say

^^ He has an auto so its going to be as fast from the first time to the tenth.

It all depends on his launch and his loading!! he could varry by .5 seconds depending on his 60 ft times!!

Decent depending on temperature outside, humidity, elevation (from sea level), etc. I consistently ran 10.7 in the 8th with an intake and TB only (5 speed), but I did see an automatic like yours with some mods that ran mid 11s several times. So, I'd say you did pretty good!

All there is for a launch is holding down both pedals and letting up the brake pedal and off you go.

I was launching from neutral, not even taping the gas pedal, and when the green light hits, i switch to 1st gear, and press the gas pedal at the same time. Oh, and my 60' was 2.583

and also, could somebody give me good tips for the dragrace? like when are the best points to shift, etc. I have AUTOMATIC. Im going to a 1/4 mile drag track this thursday

If you value ur tranny i wouldnt recommend driving it like a manual. I suggest you leave it in drive. Auto Focus trannies blow. Ive got one, lol. If anything power brake it a bit, but that can even cause damage eventually on a stock tranny.
