Drag strip this weekend!

Finally the 1/4 miles, the drag strip tells no lies, for the first time I will be running my car on the strip, I do like to get down n dirt when it comes to power shifting, and I Im used to the Xmas tree, r/t always pretty good, only when I go down the strip will I drive like this ( ya I know it hurts the car to shift without letting off the gas) but can't help it I'm in love with the feeling, now with that said.

Any ideal what I should run?

47 degree f. On sat
I hook like a beast at 2500 rpm.
K&n cai
Weight w/driver 4180.

Also ya know I'm gunn a record it. So no liar here

Let's see who gets close.

I say 14.0 @ 99 mph

Real cars dont power the front wheels, they lift them.

Keep at it, my first time at the track in Dec of '09 the best I could do was 14.49.

Fast forward to this past fall I ran a 13.74 with my little V6.

Mods: GMPP axle back, JBA short headers, Injen CAI and some good cool air.
