So how did you do???

only ran once...11.6 @ 123.x. i pulled up, when to tech, let the car sit for about 15 min and ran...i think i was the 3rd car to go. the track hooked like a mofo the first run. didn't really spin at all. i took it easy off of the line and still got a 1.84 60'. i was just trying to see what my mph would be. not too bad considering it's the first time i have ever really launched the car and ran all the way through the gears. i want some more seat time and try to get to low 11's...full weight...18" wheels w/ nittos. full tank of gas also.

the mph was low...i was expecting about 126+. talked to a couple of guys and they said their mph was low at first...they said the track was hot at first (about 5:00pm when i ran), but i don't really know anything about it. car ran great. i was going to run again, but it was getting really crowded.

there was a new silver Z06 that ran 11.5x at 130.05 mph :eek: i talked to the guy for about 15-20 min after he ran...he pulled up next to my car and got out. he had a stage II cam w/ headers...everything else was bone stock (even the tires). his mph was unreal. said he was a track junky and actually came down and ran in Pearland...i think he was the same guy that was out there when the cobra club was out there.

If it was the same guy he was a REAL COOL GUY!!! Kinda tall 6'2" or so.. kinda slender build.. kinda dark could be of Italian, Hispanic, maybe even middle eastern descent... zero accent though I was thinking "definitely an American Guy"!!
Very easy to talk to not all full of CHA(Corvette Hot Air)... just a nice guy who loves HOT CARS!!!

Those freaking cars are monsters!!! Good thing I don't make that kinda money!!! I would be all over one of those in a heart beat(ARRRRGGGH I'm a traitorous BASTAGE!!!)

I was driving my A$$ OFF to keep up with him and he was just out there like it was a walk in the park :drool:

If got this to remember though....
