My car is bone stock so I decided to see what she does. We ran last night at Lone Star (Hennessy's track) in Sealy, TX. Conditions were really good (65 degrees, track still warm) but I was still having issues. First run of the night was 12.9 @ 112 MPH, followed up by a 13.0 @ 115.5 MPH. Ran another 3-4 times, but couldn't get any better than 12.8 @ 112.5 MPH. Traction was definitely an issue through first and second gear. Best 60' was 2.10.

I'm not too dissapointed, because I didn't buy the car with the intention of drag racing.

My buddy ran his bone stock 2012 GT/CS (5-speed) at 12.8 @ 113 MPH, but he is a much better drive than I am.


Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
sounds like some good air. your mph is right were mine was when I ran 12.22's with a 1.7 60'. this was in horrid air and no track prep. I think with some practice you can get those 60's under 1.90's on street tires. and should cut a 12.4-12.5 on street tires. I have seen others run 11.7's all stock on slicks. my goal is 11.49's with no engine mods. just doing the driveshaft, lower control arms and some slicks and I think I can do it with the right air and track temps.

What setting did you have for the rear? Did you try adjusting down to improve weight transfer to rear at launch?

Only thing I did was lower back tires to 25 PSI.

No red key yet.
