Anybody taken a V-6 down the track?

Just curious if anyone has made a pass with their V-6 Camaro and how it did. The rule at our house is every car in our driveway has to make a pass at the local track. My wifes '10 V-6 Stang has run a best of 9:91 in the 1/8. I'm hoping for closer to 9:0 with the 1ls. Will let ya know soon.

Just ran mine down ZMax which is 1/4 mile track. But at the 1/8 mile mark my time was 9.64. My total time in the 1/4 mile was 14.87 at 95.6 mph. Looks like you will do fine running against that stang down the track.

My 60' time was 2.320. I had traction control and stablitrack turned off. Launched just like at a traffic light. No RPM, foot on the brake and at the third yellow light, I floored it and held it there. I could have got a better time if I work on my launch. You are suppose to hold the brake , rev to 1500 rpms and go on the third yellow light. But hey I am learning!! And I beat two V6 Camaros with the above technique, so I am happy!!
