Re: New Guy

Welcome to the club!
I'm impressed with your 1/4 mile times and it gives me hope I might break into the 13's with my setup.
Beautiful GTA you have, keep up the good work.

Re: New Guy

Welcome to this forum. Sorry I have no idea about what those statistics you posted of your GTA mean, but it looks like a really nice GTA from the pictures that you posted.

Re: New Guy

Welcome to the board. Nice ride you got there. I think the car has 13's in it sittin like it is, you just need to work on the 60' times. That has been the hardest for me as well.

Re: New Guy

You can get the air bag kits that will help with the 60's. I need one myself.
