Looks good. I also do HP tuners tunes if needed as do a variety of local facilities.

Re: DD beater c5

Well made it to rockfalls today. First pass in the left lane ran a 12.8. Second and third pass ran in the right lane were 13s. Spin both time in the right lane. So I went back to the left lane and made sure to do a good burn out. Ran a 12.9 and followed it up with a 12.75 then headed home.

Congrats! I guess we'll have our little Vette group there just like we used to have our DSM/3S group.

Hahaha I hope you can with headers, new upgraded clutch, and tune. Plus it will be cooler out when you go next time.

Iam pretty happy with what the car did. Considering another c5 corvette was there with heads, cam, skinnies, and drag radials ran low 12 and a couple of high 11s and trapping 118 mph

Hell yeah, great work! Nice to see and hear of more and more local ones at the track. Most vettes on the national level seem to only hit the track down south, up north most of the vette owners are "waxers". Hopefully with the demographic shift coming along more will be modded and raced.

What was the temp like yesterday?

It got to 80 degrees that day. Iam pretty sure with a nice 60 degree day 12.5s are possible. Maybe even better if you can 60 foot it. It was my first time ever at the track with a car and launching it ever.
