Yes, I have a 12 second car

Last year I went to the track for the first time in my life and I did just terrible with my best mile time of 14.11. I went to Great Lakes Dragway on Tuesday and I did much better. I picked up my timeslip after my first run and I could not believe my eyes, I ran a 13.035 at 107.56. That was more than a second faster than I went last year and now here I was **** near in the 12s. It took me 3 more runs but I did it, I got a 12.909 at 109.89 and on my 7th and last run of the night I did a 12.895 at 109.34. I had a 2 hour ride home and the permagrin was bigger than ever. Here are my times from last night.


60ft MPH
1 2.059 13.035 107.56
2 2.045 13.007 107.53
3 2.044 13.003 107.69
4 2.014 12.909 109.89
5 2.014 12.966 108.93
6 2.031 12.929 109.10
7 2.007 12.895 109.34

Yes i have a few mods on my L99. I have a CAI, Kooks 1 7/8 headers with high flow cats, an MBRP exhaust and a tune. Also BMR G8 Trailing Arms, Rear Toe Rods and a set of Nitto NT05 tires. On the dyno it put down 367 rwhp. I set the tire pressure to 26 on the rear tires. I tried a few things with different launches and was getting a little better. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. A 60ft in around 1.7 or 1.8 would be great.

Nice Job, feels good to know what your car can do. I bet a lot had to do with reaction time first time out, after that you got to know when to jump. I bet you can even shave a couple of more tenths off that time with more practice. I practice all the time with MN6 trying to find that sweet spot. Only once I ran a 0-60 in 4.184 seconds, most times 4.4-4.5. She is a beast and love to run a 5.0 stock against my stock. I once owned a 2011 5.0 and I cannot remember being slammed into the seat as this car does. Remember there are a few freak cars out there, maybe I got lucky. LOL

I run the same tires at 18lbs. NT5 (when Dragracing only). I understand the NT555's are better but are too wide for the stock SS rims.
My best is 13.41 104.85MPH with a 60 ft time of 2.001, pure stock. This is at at 3500ft elevation. I understand your track is around 700feet.
How long is your burnout? I'm doing a long 5-7 seconds at 3000rpm with a line lock. However my traction control seems to"reactivate" during the burnout, not what I want. Am I missing something, can you really turn off the TC Without changing the transmission control module?
