Your 60' should be down to 2.3. Your 660' is nearly a full second slow. MPH is a hair low too.

No, I'm talking about your 660' time. It's almost a second slow. Your 660' mph is about 2mph slow also.

of course, lsd would help the 60ft and the LTH would help out with torque and top end

They will help in power and application, but they will not help the underlying problem.

You need to become a better driver to get your times better.

Reaction time means nothing unless you are in an actual race.

Just practice more and more. You'll get it. :thumbup:


Don't let your slow time discourage you, can't expect the best on the first go!

There is no such thing as a short ram cold air intake, because it would be sucking in hot air from the engine bay. Not saying this is your reason but just pointing it out.

Also, what elevation are we talking about.

I ran 16.11 stock.
and I ran 16.3 stock with heavy ass 17's. like 22 lb each lol Id have to agree about the driver mod. try not to spin so much out of the hole and shift as fast as you can.
