That very solid! Assuming you were on street tires, the 60ft isn't really gonna get much better, maybe half a 10th. Do you know the DA?

Re: first time at track 1/4 good run or not?

likely not very high DA so I can't imagine you could really get much better than that, best 60' times are usually low to mid 1.8's on street tires... you did a great job and sounds like you've got drag racing down pat lol

5.0 Mikela,

Wow, those times are very impressive!

There's not really much room for improvement on street tires, next step would be to add more mods & get a set of Drag Radials!

With 3.73's & Drag radials we've cut 60fts of 1.5/1.6 in our 2011 GT/Automatic. However a 1.9 is still really impressive!

CAI, Converter & Possibly a set of Adjustable control arms & your car is headed for the 11's with no problem!

Great work at the track, We hope you had a blast!

Let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of any assistance in the near future!

Thanks for sharing with us!

- Dan

I grew up in bakersfield and only like 20min from famoso its not that high in DA but sometimes the heat is a big factor in bakersfield specialy for boosted cars but your time is good what tires were you running?

Half a tenth in the 60 when already nailing 1.9s can be huge.
