As long as you can beat up on some rice; it's all good.

Give 'er hell!

Parker

well, if I don't hear about some 10s, I'll assume you broke, or stopped for a cheeseburger on the way down the track...are you videotaping this? I'm sure the answer is yes.

be safe.

And, which rear are you running?

Parker
10-28-07, 01:03 AM
Seriously. You know the CTS-V can turn left and right? :)

It would probably handle left and right just a tad better if that thing was lowered.

He's running the Madman rear.

Ahh - that's what I thought. Is that a one-off, or is anyone else running it? :cheers:

Come on man, we see that you're online. Let us know what happened.

Parker
10-28-07, 01:10 AM
I ended up borrowing some friends end of the line BFG's to take to the track instead of getting my new ones mounted and balanced to traction was very limited. My best 60' of the day was a 2.0. The best et I netted was a 11.86 @125. Low 11's are definitely there, I just need the new tires on. Vids and timeslips will be posted by tomorrow. BTW whats the fastest track time so far?

Parker
10-28-07, 01:12 AM
Drift that....lol

Stkshkr had it at 11.88 @ 119 with a 1.71 60', but it looks like the record has changed now.

Edit: scratch that its 11.8131 @ 125.73 mph w/ a 1.9313 60' by MCasano1, so I guess your "number 2"

I'd like to see what mine would do with a 60' like that!

Should've had Madman stick some 5 lug axles in their and smaller brakes. So you could get some real wheels/tires.

Parker
10-28-07, 01:28 AM
Im not taking my car back there. I was thinking about trying out a CTS brake and hub assembly so I can run a much better tire.

Hmmm, do tell.

Parker
10-28-07, 01:35 AM
lol...I don't like not being able to drive down the street to check on the progress of my ride, as opposed to getting updates over the phone which aren't always reality.

If you could get some 16s on there it would be fast. When are you going back to the track, and are you gonna do some nitrous test runs next time?

Parker
10-28-07, 01:46 AM
Yeah, I need to get some bugs worked out. The good news is I didn't have any problem launching, just the BFGs didn't have 1/32" tread on them when I wore them out. I should have put the brand new tires on, then maybe it would be a different story.

Nice trap on that run. I saw on *another* board that you have a new engine setup. What kind of HP you running? You're N/A, right? :cheers:

keeksv
10-28-07, 02:39 PM
Nice time. Nice trap. With a better 60', you're going to be all by yourself at the top, until my new engine goes in that is....

Probably felt pretty good, too, didn't it? Who were you lining up with?

Parker since my POS is always broke you could have used my new tires. They have 93 miles on them and there 6 months old.

Parker,
Need your help! I put this 408 in my car and did the LS7 Clutch and flywheel. I drove it 42 miles and the slave(throw out) went bad. So I get a new slave and install my Spec stage 3 and this time only made it 4 miles. Now the slave is bad again and I have hot spots on the spec. Do you have any idea what is wrong?

Parker
