So I have owned the V for almost 2 months and nothing but smiles so far..

This has been the best and most fun Daily Driver I have ever owned.
So I decided on friday to go to SUMMIT Motorsports PARK(NORWALK) which is our local track and about 40 mins away from home.
First pass missed 3rd gear and ran a 13.5 @106 with a 2.1 60ft.

Let me just tell you there is 2 things I have found on this car that need improvement..SHIFTER and E BRAKE...
2nd time down the track hit 3rd good...
13.4 @ 106 with a 2.0 60ft.
Both passes where made on STREET TIRES..And the car is stock other than a K&N COLD AIR INTAKE
Being that I'm still a noobie in the V community is this good??/

hey gus took mine a while back with just corsa on a shitty nite... 1st time ever down the track i went 13.7 at 107. i know 13.7 isn't good at all but that was with zero launch and bald pirellis. car was getting loose the whole time. i need to go again to see what i can do with a small launch.

I pulled 13.4 or so at 107 when I went with nothing more than exhaust and a CAI. Soft, feathered launch. Had traction issues as well though.

I think those are good nubmers... With all my MODS I ran a 13sec 118mph last summer, of course I was taking care of my rear end during my pass and takin it easy... having said that.. take a look at my MODS and I'd say you laid down a decent 1/4 mile time..

Pre Maggie with CAI and Corsas I ran a 13.8 @ 101 at a notoriously slow track at decent altitude in the foothills of Appalachia.

At a lower 1/8th mile track I ran 8.8 @ 84 with a 2.1 60".

Both runs were on all season tires, launching from an idle and granny shifting.

I still want to take it out for a run this season. With my torque curve and power band witht he Maggie I think 12.5 on a good track is easily obtainable. I remember one guy in a V with nothing more than exhaust and tune cut a 12.8 on here.

Very nice run considering you're pretty much stock. My best b/f selling my beloved V was [email protected] with a best trap of 119mph. I had a 2.6 pullied Maggie and the usual intake/header/exhaust/Stealth tune mods. Toyo T1-R.

Ok now I have been drag racing for quite some time I;m not a pro by any means but I have never heard of a ROLL...Can you please let me know on this one...And also did you have drag radials??? Because other wise it sounds like your 12.9 might be a factory freak...

I pulled a 13.7 @ 107 in my '96 Z28. SS hood, flowmaster, !CAGS and Hypertech programmer was my only mods. That was out of a stock 285 hp engine at Bristol, TN.

With the weight difference I would be crying my eyes out if I ran slower than 13.3 in a stock V. I know my SOTP dyno has this car running faster than the old redneck mobile but now I am beginning to wonder.

Good job gus


For comparison

2.25 60' 13.51 @ 106 bone stock besides muffler delete. 700 ft above sea level 60 degree day.
With good traction these cars can see 13.1 but thats in perfect conditions (around sea level and low temps.)

These cars are not made for the track. The suspension soaks up the power. If this powertrain combination were in something like a camaro, they would be high 12 second cars no doubt. However, they are not.

with some of the equipment you can set it up to allow a foot of roll before launch time starts. the only mods were a shifter, nittos 555 and cages. its funny because i cant repeat this number in the my blk v but the wifes silver v i can by the 3rd launch in the right conditions. might be because she has way better tires than i do, or silver v's are just quicker. ill find out when i get some new tires. mine are pretty shot.

If you powershift 3rd and 4th it’s good for about 3 tenths. (Don’t miss though) I’m going to Fontana on May 25th. I’m hoping to run low 13’s.
