One of the coolest thing about this run is that it was against a brand spankin new 2014 Subaru STI limited edition. It was a BEATUIFUL car but was no match for the HHR. Thanks for playin along guys. This just goes to show 1/8 to 1/4 mile calculators can be VERY inaccurate. One of my runs was a 13.5 @ 109 with a 2.3 60ft and even that time proves 1/8 to 1/4 mile calculator to be off by a lot.

Corn Wiskey is wonderful...

Track prep was great. I've never been to a track that sticky. I have no doubt I will beat your street tire time

With only 3 runs, I wasn't able to figure out the best way to launch on that sticky of a track, better times to come...

Cool...
I tryed to break into the 12's that day, at the end of 2010, with street tires, & got a best of
13.08, by lowering tire pressures all day, & doing beautiful smokey burnouts.
15lbs of tire pressure, got me the 13.08, & killed the MPH, from 110 down to 104.

In 2011, I got a set of Mikey Thompson street drag tires,
which resulted in a best of 12.86.
They sucked, traction was hit or miss, so I decided to get slicks, for the start
of the 2012 season, resulting in a 12.77 1st pass down the track, with my best
run that 1st day with slicks, 12.69 @ 110.7 MPH

XtremeSS, thanks for the Stickers Bud! Now I am going to have to get a Drop-In K&N Filter/Assy, and some TTR Parts!

Lol. The k&n filter is a good idea and technically, the TTR sticker IS a TTR product so your good to go!
