Default Some fun of "THE STRIP" in Vegas

Just posting a video to gloat lol. I was having alot of fun taking my monte down the 1/4 mile. I was hoping to get up against a realistic opponent but everyone was supercharged, a crotch rocket, or just a V-8 lol. I have a quick reaction time so i was pulling on some people off the line except for the bike. The cool thing was i ripped a 2010 Camaro SS off the line to the 1/8 mile mark with my N/A Monte SS.

Niiiice! I love how your Monte looks, love the wheels and vinyl/decals on the extensions.

Those 20's are KILLING your 1/4 mile time. Ouch. You should be running a high 15 stock. Also, what was your 60' time?

It was a cool video. I wish I could go to a 1/4 mile track right now but it's kinda hard when the temp is literally 10*F right now

i need to find my tickets from the track i think on the run against the camaro i ran a 16.3. I had a good reaction time at .278 my 1000ft was 14.2 and im not sure what else i ran. i will post again with the other info. it wasnt that good and i know my rims kill my times but im not a full time racer i was just trying to have some fun. I usually go out to the track with my dad and i race his zo6 now thats fun. My car is just a nice street car nothing more looks good and pulls hard away from lights .

That transmission and those rims, YIKES!

Looks like you are having some fun though, and it looks good. That's what is important

I like your attitude, recognizing it's not a full time racer, yet going out and getting in the thick of things with her. Cool, wish there were more Monte people like you around here in Utah. Most everyone here are Blue hairs and show no interest what so ever in modding their Monte's. Your Monte looks pretty sweet and tastefully done. Nice!

If you have other cars that you run and this is just for fun, then who cares. JOETHEPRO's Monte does look good
