              Thanks! I got it to go 14.90@94 stone stock. I cant remember what stock Gen 2s ran back in the day but it may have had a lil more left in it.

                at Atco or E-Town 14.8s would be a walk in the park. Heck if I would've shallow staged more I would've had it here in Ohio. You can do it.

                  Yeah I've only ran it at Island and had pretty bad traction issues. Came up with a best of 15.16@93.46mph. Did you do any manual shifting? Tire pressures? Anything different than on the street?

                    Left in drive OD off, T/C off, 20psi rear.
                    I've run both those tracks and I liked E-Town better. Both can get great DA that I can't get here in Ohio. I really believe it is a 14.6-14.7 car over there.

                      WOW, either my runs were terrible or your car is much faster than mine. I have 106k on mine now, whats on yours? I'll probably hit up Island again in the spring since I can make a lot more passes than at E-Town and it's a little closer too. I'll also try to get to Atco too as I've never been there, but it's a bit more of a ride from me. I hear Maple Grove in PA is a good track too.

                        My car has a lil over 32k miles on it. Fairly low considering the year.
                        E-Town hooks well and fantastic air.

                          Very nice!
                          Last time I went to a test and tune at E-Town (a few years back) I got 2 runs in I've always said it's more like a staging lane car show then a drag strip. It is a very nice facility though.

                          Thanks for all your help! What was your best 60ft of the night?
