i am trying to get some practice before i take my gt to wisd.
As ratter said will love to see the slip when you take it to the track with that claimed power you should be running 107mph+ well thats with a true 255rwkws good inticator best Ive seen out of a stock boss290 at wsid is 104mph, also intunes dyno has been a very happy dyno on a number of times beware.
And if you havnt been to the stip before it aint as easy as you would think to run a good number straight away takes a bit of practice and the only place to practice is at the strip not the street but good luck anyway.
I will be at WSID next week to watch some friends should come down and give it a run then.

Re: 1/4 times for stock ba/bf gt

Most BA GT owners with a few kms on the clock will achieve high 13's to 14 flat if manual. Auto's will be few tenths slower. With the BF everything I have read suggusts they are a tad slower due euro 3 standards, which I hope is wrong. Regardless they 'Look' like they would do 11's...lol (there was a black/gold one at the Clipsal and it looked damn hot!)

Re: 1/4 times for stock ba/bf gt

Street drag racing is great,Gtechs are quite good and when you go down to the track you should get mid to late 13s.Get some BF goodrich drag radials or MT streets or Nittos drag radials and you will easily get mid 13s
If you listen to half the people on here who tell you cant do things you never will do anything.

Street racing is great until you kill or maim someone. Try telling my dead brother in law or brain damaged sister in law how much fun it was... yes both from fools with little tools thinking they could drive like Victor Bray on the street. You never know what is around the next corner, unlike at the proper place - your local drag strip or circuit.

I think Goldenboy is refereeing to legal Street drags (or Street Car class drag racing), not drag racing on public roads. I can't imagine anyone here endorsing that, I hope.

Alot of factors can influience your result but at a guess I would say around a 14 flat give or take either way. That's a good dyno result for your AU XR8.
