New gal from Los Angeles

Hey my name is Vanessa and I have a 07 GT. It only has a few bolt-ons with a best 1/8 of 8.456. I'm still a newbie to the whole drag racing scene, but I hope to learn alot from you guys and hopefully learn new things to get those times down

Welcome to the forum, I hope you enjoy the site and post up often.

There is more to making your car faster than bolt ons that just increase hp/tq. Suspension is KEY in good track times as well so dont neglect that area.

Yeah for sure, I've been trying to save for suspension stuff, but I'm not really sure where to start, any ideas?

Re: New gal from Los Angeles

welcome

Very nice looking GT! Springs, subframe connectors, sway bars, LCA's, panhard bar, the list goes on for suspension mods that will help you at the track. Grippy tires and a line lock will also help.

Hey Vanessa, you've been running out at Irwindale I take it?

Any chance you were there the past 2 Thursdays? A car that looked just like yours ran a buddy of mine (he was in a v6 altima) which only stood out because he was complaining about getting beat by a girl haha

Actually here's the in car video of that run..



it would be a small world if so haha

Welcome to the site! I screwed up third gear last thursday but trans is out of the car, and rebuild kit is supposed to arrive tomorrow so by next Thursday I should be good to go again

Dang sorry to hear about ur 3rd gear, well I'll be there tomorrow, not racing though, the bf is racing his car for the first time and I'm just going to watch, but I'll try to be there next Thursday too!

Hahaha That's too funny - glad you found the site!

Tonight would be a GREAT night to go, too because rain was in the forecast/etc the track would probably be empty.. and the cold weather would be great for a higher trap speed

Wish I could

My car is slow, though

Have fun at the track tonight

Thank button works in the tech forums!

I'd heard the track was rained out.. I wasn't going anyway...

I finished rebuilding my T45 today.. and the car is almost back together, I'll probably be out there next weekend

Where are you and your BF in LA? If you're both racing cars I'd bet you're both fun to hang out with!

I'm in South Redondo Beach

I'm not going to the Knotts show (I'll be recovering from an 18 hour day offroading) but I'm going to a local mustang club's BBQ in Corona afterward.. the guy is pretty cool, he has an F430, Sl600, Callaway Vette, etc.. I could probably get you an invite if you'd like - he's had several mustangs in the past and is thinking of getting the new 5.0.. cool guy, but Corona is a bit of a hike

Yeah, we passed by and they were closed, so sad, his fox was going to make its debut, but guess not. lol. Sweet! Glad to hear that you almost have it back together! Are you going to the may 1st street legals?

I'm In San Gabriel and he's in Covina. Haha thanks, he's more into autocross, but his fox has a pretty sweet suspension set up.

Wow! That guy has alot of toys! Haha, I'm down to go, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it cause if I do, I'll be going from Knotts and idk if I'll be too tired or not. lol
