    I thought I read someplace a bunch of Hellcats were going to be at GLD on Saturday May 16th. Is this still happening?

    thats me above kicking ass....ha.......im the one in the left lane figuring things out....i got no help from the crew...they knew all of us were new.....i asked how my burnout was..they said good....now that i see it its weak....also didnt know about the 2 staging lights...i figured it out after this run, but its obvious i dont know by this video, yet they dont tell me....

    the other car is a M6, im a A8....i won all 4 races...this one was my worst...i think a 11.9....my best was 11.6 and that was with no tire heat up and TC on.....DR buick told me my burnouts were always not enough and thats why my times never improved by doing burnouts.....humidity/air temp was horrible last night too.....i was thrilled with 11.6 being my first run ever....i was shaking for 30 minutes + after the first race....mindblowing how much faster the track feels than the street....i couldnt see where the finish line was, so i kept going until i past the large sign...so i was probably 140-150 mph......it was fun slowing down quickly.......

    Are you running all season or summer tires? Those are good times for a newbie. Motor Trend got 11.6 in the 13 14 GT500 with professional drivers.

    im running Nitto 555r


    Jim----did you use TC ?
    did you rev the automatic before launch?
    have you been to a track before?

    trying to figure out how you got a better time than me with stock tires and a worse 60'(obviously its that your a better driver)----but trying to figure out the math of the 60' and how it didnt seem to matter as much as i thought it would....i would think the lower 60' would mean the best 1/4 time

    you did awesome considering the weather
