I have decided to end my run into the threshold of greatness and pure streetability in the stock Bullitt. I have assumed the best run of 14.02 @ 100.57 mph and I am officially quitting the run for the high 13 mark with a stock setup. Its too rough on me when I'm constantly awake thinking about the next time I go to the track or biting into my pen while I take notes on how to slip the clutch faster or powershift harder. It's unbearable!!!

No really, I've decided that I know I can do it and if I really wanted I could but I'm going for mods now. I admire and respect those who remain true to the stock form but damnit Jim! I'm a racer, not a stocker!

So carry on ladies and gentlemen. We have more Bullitt kills to make!!!

LOL :grin:

Ironically I gave up at the exact same place. 14.02, and my best MPH was 100.50. I don't blame you at all. No sense falling behind trying to prove a point :grin:

In December, just before the tack closed, I ran a 13.81 with the brand new Nittos. It bogged badly and wish I had got another shot at that one. But I came to the conclusion I don't want to run at Orlando on Goodyears :grin:

So my recommendation to you: Get DR's before anything else!

Sorry to hear that the quest is over. Now just shoot for the twelves.

I'm moving down to Lawton this week (working for Goodyear) so next time you come up lets get together and run em.

I ran my car for the first time this past weekend and my best time was 14.8 at 94mph. What were your reaction times? And did you do it with the Traction control on or off. Thanks

Reaction time doesn't really do much when your at a test and tune run. My 14.04 (Not .02, sorry!) was with a reaction time of 2.02. It's a matter of easing out the clutch instead of dropping it. And Traction Lok must remain off.

Jerry, I'm not quitting racing, just my pursuit of the almighty 13 second run. As soon as I get my X, I should be good for 13.8s. Mufflers, 13.7. Pullies, 13.6... DRs 13.2s... Shifter, 13.1s... outrunning my friend's Z-28, priceless. :smile:

Zac, any time, any day, I know the streets of Lawton like the back of my hand. Its on bro!!!!

I just got home from a run in Steele, AL. I used to run a 14.2 completely stock, then added only a Tri-Ax shifter and it landed me a 13.9 @ 101.76, with traction control --on--. Otherwise, I'd spin through the entire quarter mile. :smile:

from what I understand getting a good run in has everything to do with your 60'. If you can't cut a good 60 you can pretty much trash the run.
The closest I've come to 13 is 14.002... GRRRRRR!!! And when I go to Florida in a couple weeks I hope to meet up with the Floridians again and hit Orlando. ANd I'm gonna take my new fangled digital camcorder with me and set it up on a tripod in the back seat so that the racing Gods out there can evaluate my run and let me know where I can improve. The closest thing I can think of short of getting JB to ride along with me. :smile:
