What ?
I think you are asking what the 5th gen does in the 1/8th ?? 1/4, has been recorded the LS3 is a 13 flat, that translates to a 8.30 ish 1/8.

I don't have a 1/4mi track in my area. I have 1/8mi track up the road about an hour away. I've never run a drag before. This is my first REAL car. Been driving Jeeps and minivans. Lol

If you've never run a drag before dont expect to run the best times your car can run. Even with a auto Trans launching takes some practice. If you have an auto my recommendation is to just turn the traction control off. Don't use the stupid track mode traction crap and put the shifter in sport let the computer do the shifting.

Thanks for the advice. I'm a novice and I can admit it. I'm not wanting to race her anyway. I have to take the advice of others " if you can't afford to light it on fire and push it off a cliff, don't race it".
Not ready for that yet. I'm gonna build a gen 2 for that.

Eh....go race it. Have fun, don't worry about your times.
Unless you are racing in a class, it is really about nothing but enjoying your car. Go try it out!
