Since I've never done it maybe I don't know how to read the slips, so please tell us which side are you on each run.

Ok, I am Car # 4014, R/T is reaction time, 60' time, 330', time, 1/8 mile time and MPH. All times are in seconds (other than the Mile Per Hour).

Come to the Black Hills Rally in South Dakota July 20. That's all we run there. This will be my first time in a C7. My 13 GS was at least a second slower and I only hit about 91 mph

A 7.4 in the 1/8th mile is roughly 11.5 in the 1/4 mile (which makes sense since he posted last week that he ran 11.5s in the quarter mile that day)

considering the DA was very good but not mine shaft good...MPH is very impressive ...1/4 pass should be around 120 mph nice!

track prep must have been great as well... those are super consistent slips nice job.

Best I got out of my 2009 Z51 A6 was about 12.19 @ about 117 in the 1/4, it was stock, no tune.
