well my Maybellene when stock was a slowpoke....
You hear stories of certian lucky folks buying the so-called factory freaks, I tend to do the reverse and always seem to score the factory slowpokes..
for example Maybellene (2006 A4 GTO) went a best [email protected]
at Albuquerque Raceway, bone stock...
With the mufflers removed and the resonator she twice went a best of [email protected]
at Area 51 Raceway in Roswell, New Mexico..
Same setup at 'The Strip' In Vegas in 102 degree heat she did a best of [email protected]
I am sure she would have performed better at a lower altitude which I was hoping to deal with in Vegas but the heat on that day had the DA above 5000ft..
My Monte's best time at Area 51 is a [email protected]
Lookie this race between me (in the Monte) and my husband (in the GTO)..
Now my husband is a rather experienced strip driver.. The GTO was brand new, still had the dealer tag in the window, and had around 3500 miles, as we drove Maybellene alot upon purchase to break her in..
I hole shot him and out 60ft him (I for some reason can cut 1.9's - 2.0's in the FWD monte) and you can see the Monte SS has the lead..
and I thought I had the win as the GTO passed me right at the traps:
This tended to always be the pattern when these cars race at the track or street... Monte makes the GTO play catchup, it eventually does and wins and would start pouring it on past say 110mph.... Now I know those times are slow but consider the DA on that given day was in the 8000ft range, as Albuquerque is rather unique in being a mile high desert (unlike Denver) so the summer heat can really send the DA soaring...
