Stock 04 M6 1/4 Mile time

Just back from the drag strip with a smile on my face.
13.81 @ 102.2 MPH with a 20mph head wind.
Only problem is see with this car is WHEEL HOP. Most of the time i could sneak it out of the hole without hopping it but when shifting to second it got ugly a couple of passes. I had to lift to save the poor rear end.

Great time for all stock these cars are heavy! Do you remember what your 60 foot was? I bet with some ET Streets or something in the rear you would have been a 13.7 at 105 with nothing but tires as mods! I can't wait to hook this car up, all I need is some time off man. Been working 7 days a week!

Man 7 days a week can suck but it makes alot of car payment
My best 60 ft time was 2.11 most were 2.2 seconds. Rumor has it that the ET Streets will help the wheel hop too.

I got a fat check and two days to come home, it was worth it because I got paid and bought some mods. Little by little.

Did you see that website that has the rims *and* the ET Streets mounted and balanced 26.10 I think they were for $275.00?

They are a must for a good ET. 2.1 2.0 is real good for where we are at right now with this car in my opinion. I think with some weight reduction and those Drag's in the back a 1.8 is possible!

Looks good. I've also heard that launching these cars can be difficult because of the wheel hop. Which track did you visit?

Cheers,

Mark

I was afraid someone was going to ask that
I went to Lapeer dragway. It's not the best place to go but it's only 10 miles from my house. Yes wheel hop was a big problem. Mostly when shifting into second. Dont get me wrong it would wheel hop out of the hole too if i was a little to aggresive with the clutch. I had plenty of time to practice, only 40 or 50 cars showed, it was cold and windy. I made 15 passes.
Best pass was my second.

1500 Rpm launch and then roll into the throttle, or she will wheel hop.

Just got back from the 1/4 track and my GTO (auto) ran a best of 13.79 at 100.29. It ran three 13.80's at 100.14. It sure was fun whipping up on the Mustangs and Camaros. The only race I lost was to a 04 GTO 6 speed. I had him out of the hole but he caught me on the top end.

Now it is time for some mods.
