Nice! What was your 60ft. time? Did you only make one pass?

Was it a head wind? Nice ET...but your speed appears a little slow for the ET.

My 07 Cobalt SS 2.4L 4-spd auto (w/intake, Jet Performance stage-2 module, and cat-back exhaust) did the 1/8th mile in 10.07 @74 MPH.

Did you paddle shift or let the A/T work?

Ok my Reaction time was .071, my 60ft was 2.37, my 330 was 6.7. The dragstrip travels from west to east and the wind was south southeast kinda into the wind.

Made two pass' and both were the same just off by 2/100ths of a sec
As long as you can get consistant and quick reaction times that would make for a nice bracket car!

As asked before...did you use the paddle shifts, leave it in drive, or put the shifter to the left and still let the computer shift?

I ran my 2010 SX Sedan 2.4L 5spd auto last night at our local 1/8 th. mile. I got two passes in. The E/T was slower than expected but the 60' ft. and 330' were right behind yours. I think it is probably attributed to you having the 6spd transmission and I have the 5spd. transmission. It might also be weather conditions, but I think more transmission and your intake. My car is completely stock. So know I have good base line numbers.
1st pass
Reaction time - .181
60ft. - 2.52
330ft. - 7.07
1/8 ET - 10.78
1/8 mph - 66.58

2nd pass I deep staged so my ET is slower but my speed was higher
reaction - .117
60 ft. - 2.58
330ft. - 7.13
1/8 ET - 10.83
1/8 MPH - 67.27

oh by the way....
I had a lot of fun. The first pass I raced a Subaru station wagon (turboed) and beat him off the line, but he drove around me once that turbo spooled up.

Second pass I raced my buddy in his F-250 Turbo Diesel running a programmer. The only reason I beat him was because he was spinning and had a reaction time .5 second slower than mine.

Good times!

Yes in Holt. The Pro Mods are in town, so I only got two passes in all night. The only things I did was to take the spare tire out and the jack. I had about a 1/4 tank of gas in. I was gonna mess with the tire pressure but decided not to.
