You can get her to the high 8's.

Your 60 foot is allright. My personal best is 1.99 on the stock set up.

Are you an auto or a manual?

The first time I took my 04 out, I got a 9.30 in the 1/8. You should be able to do better than that. Of course, I also ran a 10.55 that night as I was learning how to launch. It's not easy, especially if you've never been to the track before in your life.

My best 1/8 was 8.682 @86.10 mph.

my 60' was 2.013.

This was bone stock on a m6.

But bear in mind this was after 30 runs in the GTO. It really takes some getting used to.

Traction Control off for best results.

I personally hold rpm at 2500/3000 rpms.. Loose the clutch and feather(pedal adjustment between 1/2 throttle and 3/4 throttle) the throttle to prevent hop until about 30 pmh then its to the floor. I also feather the throttle shifting between first and second. after that its all fast clutch and stick.

Best I've ran in an 04 M12 was a 8.8 (when Fatbitch was stock), the absolute best I've seen an 05 run was a 9.4 stock......

what did the fatbitch run when you had her modded? just as a point of reference.

I was running 8.8-8.90's stock with a fair amount of wheelspin and granny shifting. Now 8.2x's and still granny shifting.
:cheers

Although I love my customers.... most of the 05 owners here can't drive for sh*t! I've seen customers here with more mods than you, we've built their cars with 440+rwhp and they can't get out of the 8.5x range.... It's doable with the six speed as I and many other owners have proven, it just takes a little practice (and carnage...).:cheers

Put 440rwhp in my goat and I'll show you some real low e.t.'s or some real good carnage!

I guess it's like Cuba said in one of his other movies, I've got to "show you the money" in order to do that.:cheers
