Englishtown results 6/10/07

I was great to meet those who had a chance to make it. It was overcast and ~ 65*.

Here are my 3 runs (mods listed below):

1st - 13.055 @ 105.74, 1.832 60'
2nd - 13.031 @ 105.87, 1.839 60'
3rd - 13.091 @ 105.14, 1.897 60' (bad launch w/red light)

After my second run I was sure I would see a 12 second pass. Oh well, my mods list is not complete.

07' Silver GC SRT8

Mods to date: Extended upper and lower control arms 1/2" (rear wheels now centered) / Volant CAI (snorkel & brake duct mod) / GSM P-Spacers / 180* t-stat / GSM fan mod / B&G stage II / Kooks/Mopar

Best 1/4 mile - Stock exhaust manifold and cat back (Englishtown, NJ): 13.031 @ 105.87, 1.839 60'

weird you you didnt hit 103+ on every run. computer must be pulling timing. bad gas was probably the right diagnosis.

Mango,
the air quality was not great today. When I was driving down I drove through some areas of mist. Our times could have been better with better air. I believe the other black stocker that ran 13.0's a few months ago had a 1st run of 13.2x @ 103-4, so the air quality cost him time and mph...

Mango? What's up bro? Maybe you should get your student with the new 300C srt8 to drive.

(I kid, I kid...)
As long as you had a good time is all that matters.

I,m sure the weather cost me 12's. There were some NoS LX cars running some insane ET & MPH. There was a 300c SRT w/125 shot running traps of 116-118!

Great meeting everyone at Etown Sunday. My son Chris and I had a great time. And yes, air was bad. Even with 1.8x 60 foot times, we were no where near our norm of 13.0x - 1st run was a 13.28 @104 - up to the 1/8th we were fine, but it fell on it's face after that.

At least it wasn't TOO hot, because there's no where to hide from the sun at Etown. The inconsistent times cost us a 1st round win in eliminations as our times were all over the place.

it was nice without ricers, although there was some large oildown that took forever to clean up, from a drag only car. but at least there was not an endless line of buz-buzz from the imports in the pits and in staging lanes.

hope to see everyone soon.

Dave + Chris

Mods: 180 thermo, PCV catch can, K&N, home made intake scoop

best times 13.02 @ 104.5, 1.8 60'

Dave, It was great to meet you and your son. I hope I will be doing the same thing with my son is say 15+ years (my son is 2). If you were off ~2 tenths your usual 13.0's, I can perhaps estimate that I would be in the 12's (with cool dry air) for sure running 3 consecutive runs of 13.0x's @ 105.7+ (my beast is in my sig)... My mods seem to be working well together so far. I have taken your advice and ordered a catch can. For $140 it can't hurt. I look forward to meeting others at the next event.
