Took my little car out to the track for test & tune.
Best past was a 11.74 @116.43 mph
60' 1.798
330 4.937
660 7.544@ 94.39

06 5.7 stock boneyard engine with 904 and 3.73 gears.
Never raced on pavement before so trying to figure out going in a straight line. Had a fun time.

Yes, need to learn how to leave better foot braking.
My first run was a 11.89@ 102mph. Texted my friend and he asked why mph was so slow. I didn't know where the finish line was and let off too early. Luckily he raced there before and he told me.

Also do I need more gear maybe a 4.30?

What Size Tire are you using? I'd work on getting some good solid runs out of what you have and then reassess .
