Talking Island Dragway

http://www.islanddragway.com/

Going here next week to try to work on my 0-60 pulls. I can't get below 6 seconds in the V8 M6 so either my shifting is gutter trash, somethings wrong with the car, or i'm the slowest middle aged human being on Earth.

Let us know how it is. I was at Island once probably about 10 years ago. Considered taking the SS there to see what it'll do.

I can't today - I went on Wednesday and did like 15 runs wasn't a lot of competition for the track which was nice. If you wanna coordinate I could definitely do something next week.

Awful. I couldn't get my wheels to hook at all. I posted them up in the Drag discussion for the 1/8 mile time sheet sticky thread. Best 1/4 I could do with my M6 was 13.105. I wasn't happy but I learned a lot about the car. Biggest thing is these things are highly heat resistant - I hot lapped the crap out of the car - 17 runs only two 3 minute breaks. Times kept going down - I credit some of it with fuel loss. I was consistent to a fault if you factor in the quarter tank I used up over 4 hours.

I was 1788 in the attached. I have other footage but my wife took this one on one of my runs. To be fair to the Corvette he was having a really bad day. https://youtu.be/dE_FxgifX1U
