    <<< also wonders about the title?

    Nice, 12's arent bad. Those LS1 cars have a ton in them though. There are guys up here that are deep into the 10's on a simple cam swap, PCM tune, and drag radials. Then they drive them to work! :shock:

    Almost had one of those. Wow-weeee was that a fun car. Right off the showroom floor without mods. I can only imagine what it would be like tricked out. Too bad the hubby didn't fit in it too well. :(

    This car was 13.2et/106 mph off the show-room floor. It has since been tricked (slightly). It's dyno tested at 400 HP and turns 12.89/110.9

    I installed a Moser Ford 9-inch rearend with 4.11 gears, 31-spline axles, and Detroit Locker pumpkin. It has a 6-speed. I drive it every day if it doesn't rain.

    I hang with a bunch of kids who have tricked out their TA's big time.
    One kid has installed twin turbos and turns low 10 et's in the 1/4.
    Another kid has a super charger installed plus other goodies. On a good day he turns low 11's.
    Another kid has 3:73 gears, Cam, custom heads, and wet N0s=150 extra hp. He turns the 1/4 in high 10's. And they are driven every day to work.
    Another has a stroker 385 cubic inch LS1. He turns high 9's but it isn't streetable.

    My wife's TA is exactly like the red one except it's newer and is without any mods whatsoever, it's peuter instead of red, auto tranny instead of 6-speed. It dynoed 355 hp right off the show-room floor. My wife only lets me drive it when she's with me. She raced it in the 1/4 mile and her best time was 13.8 seconds/ 106 mph
    Can't decide which I like more--photography or drag racing.

    Thank you, Terri.

    The title refers to the fact that the snapshot is pure camera and no post processing whatsoever.

    [quote="canonrebelbest time was 13.8 seconds/ 306 MPH. She hauls groceries, too. quote]

    OMG!!! 306mph!?!?!?! J/K!

    400hp huh? Man get that sucker to hook off the line, shift it harder and you should be in the high 11's. I've got an '84 Z28 350 M5 and a '83 Z28 305 M5. I'm old school- no EFI for me! Can't wait to start working on them again. Great now you got me looking for my keys :roll:

    love draggin too... got a mate with a 12 second VW kombi... another with a 12 second beetle.... and another with a 10 second fiat 500 :D
    my camper will only do about 18.6 seconds but that's still a good sub-20 pass for some something with the aerodynamics of a house.
