Default New PB for the Goat

Finally made it back to the track today. Haven't been there since August. All I gotta say is that this car is a big fan of chilly weather.
results below:
R/T: 0.3874
60': 2.135
330': 5.914
1/8 E/T: 8.965
1/8 mi MPH: 81.58
1000' ET: 11.553
1000' MPH: N/A (dunno why)
1/4 mi E/T: 13.73
1/4 mi MPH: 105.9

Hopefully next year I can get some drag radials and stop racing on these darn all-seasons.

This is very true, but looking at the mods he has done compared to what I have, I'm good with that. 12'* should be achieved when I'm done with this car no problem.

Besides, I still have a better trap speed :P

BTW Bill, congrats on the new PB.

GTO takes turns too

Nice times... I'm only a chip/exhaust from being nicely into the 13'*... So tempting.... :( Stupid warranties..

Faster for how long? I bet you didn't use slicks etc.

The GTO is quite a nice car and puts down serious power.

Same to you on the PB'*. Any mods going in for winter?

No, no slicks. Just all-season tires. The only mods right now are an SLP cat-back exhaust and an SLP MAF tube. I don't believe that either of these mods are doing that much to help the cause. But, they came with the car, so I'm not complaining.

As for winter mods, the brakes are going to be upgraded, and possibly a set of drag radials may find their way into my life. Nothing crazy until the warranty runs out.
