Just hit a 13.05 last night at 109. No mods from my best last time of 13.1 @ 107. Just colder air 50 degrees vs. 81 degrees. This time ran stock pump gas no race gas like last time. Tires down to 19 pounds from 22 pounds. Same half tank of gas. Worse 60 foot times though. 2.1 vs prior 2.0. I know 12.9 or possibly 12.8 is in there, think it's time for new tires. Will post time slip tomorrow, out of town right now.

BTW, only mods: K&N, 3" exhaust, and vec2.

Actually from what I've heard, this is one of the worst tracks in FL (Orlando Speedworld). My friend just raced his bone stock Nissan Frontier with the non-supercharged V6 that ran a 17.7, and he spun the tires a good 40-50 feet. On the street, he CAN'T spin at all. I'm just bogging out of the hole. A lightning with fully slicks was only getting 1.9 60' times. Any my friend with an '03 Cobra is usually getting 2.4 to 2.5 launch times. The best time I ever got in my stock 2000 Corvette was only a 2.2 60', usually closer to 2.3.

Going to Thunderhill March 11,12 and 13th.(BAMF and Viper Days) Towing a Viper with a RAM SRT QC.

During lunch break there will be a drag race on the main straight between a New Corvette and a new Viper. The Corvette is on loan to Maurice Liang(founder of the Viper Club of America and X President, and presently President of the Northern Ca Region), complements of Bob Lutz. Maurice became friends with Bob when he was in charge of Chrysler before the DC purchase.

But to the point, I hope to race the Vette with my QC. Lutz will be pissed if the RAM beats the Vette. Yes the RAM has had a few tweaks like headers, high flow cats, waiting on a Comp Coupe engine controller. Still likely to see the Vette's tail lights but I hope to have some fun. If the Vette is faster I will challenge it with my Viper.

Just Got back from ThunderHill BAMF and Viper Days three days of open track driving.

The 2005 C6 was there Friday. First three races the new Vette vs a 2003 Viper SRT and the Viper spanked the Vette buy many car lengths. Then the Vette raced an early(1996 415 hp) Viper RT10 and the Viper won ease. Then is was time for Big Red(2005 SRT QC) to take on the Vette. From the hole I pulled over a car length but at about 60 the RAM seemed to hit a wall(air, weight, autot-ranny power loss ). On an 1/8 mile track the Vette would be nervous. But I did get beat by a few car lengths. The observers ( Viper owners ) were shocked at how close this race was. I wanted to spank the Vette with my 5500 pound truck but not on this day. But from traffic light to traffic light I think the Vette would lose as long as the blocks were not to long.

I have spoken with a number of folks including Dan Cragin and a couple of viper techs who told me the Comp Coupe engine controller won't work on the truck. Please let us know what you do end up finding out.

Womsterr, are you in LA, DC performance is where my truck is going later this week or early next to get VEC2, Exhaust, CAI, and headers installed. I was there about a month back, is your truck the red one I saw on the lifts? I think it was getting a SC installed, but I am not sure

The Comp Coupe controller will not work on the QC because of the automatic tranny, it needs communication with the controller.

My QC has headers, high flow cats, Cat Back and K&N cold air induction. It pulls great off the line but once the air wall starts to build and the tranny shifts to second the acceleration falls. I put the tranny in tow mode and let the tranny shift on its own. I think I could have held the Vette off a little longer if I had manual shifted but without an opportunity to experiment the shifting went to the engine controller. But I can tell you traffic light to light I would drive a Vette nuts. I am not an advocate of street racing just an observation
