1/8 9.6

2nd run
r/t .431
1/8 9.5

3d run
r/t .719

i wanted to hit 9 flat or 8.9, but at the time it was really hot, and it was my first time, oh well maybe next time

i dont remember the other 350z's time,the only one i remember was the twin turbo Z, it got a 7.7.............. but you have to remember that we're in different altitudes, so the times are going to be different from everyone else on this forum

Looks like you had some consistent runs. (and got consistently faster too.) :clap:
Here are slips from my first (and only) trip to a drag strip in the summer of 05. (1/8 mile). :shiftdrive:

Are these times normal? M6 or A5?
If you are asking about my times, I think they are a good indicator of what the car is capable of. (bone stock base Z -6sp of course) I think it would be about 14.1 or 14.2 in the quarter. -about what I have read in the mag's.

LSD and better tires might save a couple tenth's and get it into the very high 13's.

My best 1/4 time on n2o is 13.1...plenty of room for improvement.

60ft times tell a lot about a run. My 60ft time in the 13.1 run was 1.9. I'll find the slip and post.

:OMG: Stock? :OMG:

...just noticed the n2o...
No problem...There is a guy here in MD that put down a 13.1 on slicks w/ just basic bolt-ons. He recently put down 11.98 w/ his Turbonetics single.

Here's a video of my run...

Negotiating the car on slicks with 16psi was like being a fat girl on a tricycle at 107mph. I'll have my 1/4 times in the mid 12's w/ practice.
