hey guys,i did ok.best time of 9.85,beat a clubby on slicks with 3 inch exhaust and extractors and cold air intake...was sittin next to v8 commodores that were makin my car rattle they sounded so tough but i smoked em...only things that beat me that i went up against were that clubby,but i soon got him,a 6 cylinder gemini on nos,and a tough xd 351.i reckon my car mite be better suited to 1/4 mile,i was taken off the line everytime,but pulled em in in second and never used third,the clubby was gettin a good car and a half at least off the line!

Thats not a bad time. I reckon you can get it down with some more practice.

My EL has ran a best time of 9.81 with only a cat back system and a XR8 snorkle. That was with a single spinner 3.23 diff, standard headers, etc etc

I would like to think with a bit more practice you could get down to 9.7 9.6. I'm eventually aiming for 9.5 or below
