My previous best was 13.72 on the nittos. Car is bonestock besides the nittos and a k&n. Mileage was 3500, car had royal purple synthetic oil change the day before. Weather was typical juicy Houston summer night.

Well, take a look at these three runs tonight (in order and my only 3 of the night):

60ft.. 1.952
330... 5.672
1/8... 8.774
mph... 79.37
1000.. 11.442
1/4... 13.685
mph... 100.38

Good start to the night! Break my best ever on the first run. Figure it won't get much better than this. I was wrong. Here's #2:

60ft.. 1.907
330... 5.616
1/8... 8.719
mph... 79.38
1000.. 11.387
1/4... 13.632
mph... 100.45

Whoa nelly!! To my knowledge, this is the fastest stock Bullitt time. I believe Paul Svinicki ran 13.66 on DR's. I'm pumped and figure it can't get better, right? WRONG! Here's the 3rd and final run:

60ft.. 1.887 (car shot like a rocket)
330... 5.605
1/8... 8.691
mph... 79.79
1000.. 11.348
1/4... 13.586 (Fuggin A!)
mph... 100.58

Take that you Bullitt nay sayers! This car ROCKS!

That's freakin great man. That car is gonna run 13.30's(at least) when cool weather rolls in. Throw some 4.10's in it and it will certainly be a 12 second ride.

I have gotttt to get mine to the track. :smile:

thanks gang.

You won't get those times without drag radials. I still can hardly believe I pulled that 1.88 60ft. I think I have the launch down pat now.

I've got the nittos at 17psi. I drive around the water to avoid getting the fronts wet. I back up into the water and quick spin the rears. I pull up in front of the water and do a 6-7 second burnout holding the brake with my left foot. I come out of the burnout rolling towards the line until they squeal. I get in the stage box, raise the rpms to 4700 and slip the clutch out of the hole.

And no traveling to races for this car. It's actually my g/f's car and I'm lucky to get the track runs that I do. She already told me last night was it for the summer. No problemo...I like ending on a high note. :grin:

Blakwing, every shift was at redline or maybe a hair before. You want to get as close to the rev limiter as possible without bouncing off it (which will definitely slow you down).

Good luck Roushe! The nittos make a big difference when they hook.

the tires were Nitto 555R 17" 275/40's mounted on 17 X 9 Cobra R's. There the rims/tires that I have on the vobra full time.

Rara, I bet Paul was powershifting at 5500. I didn't powershift. It was off gas, clutch in, next gear, clutch out and back on gas as fast as I could do it. If I were to powershift, 5500 would seem to be a logical spot because the revs will jump up slightly while the clutch is hit and the gas is smashed.

Everyone, thanks for the kind words. I'm still pumped about the runs and I hope some of you will go out and do the same. I'm not a pro driver by any means, but if I can help on the technique, just shoot away and ask.

"We are not worthy! We are not worthy!"

If only you could see me now. I am bowing before my computer, like Wayne and Garth in front of Aerosmith. :smile:

Nice job dude.

I admire your restraint :grin: I can't seem to race without powershifting. Some people can't seem to powershift...I can't keep from doing it, honestly. I mastered it in my 87 5.0 and never quit.

Also, do your Cobra R's fit the Bullitt exactly like the Cobra?

the 17 X 9 cobra R's work perfectly. No problems with driving 45 miles to the track, make my runs, and 45 miles back home.

The 275/40 tires look really good in the rear and help fill up the wheel well. No rubbing issues either.

Pardon the stupid question, but do you start with your left foot across the clutch and brake then slip it off the clutch? Just wondering.

Thanks.
