This car can go 12's easily.There's plenty of room left to improve on the 60ft and track conditions weren't the greatest today.

The car freakin moves out. Everyone at the track all day was talking about it, it shocked the hell out of some people!

Lookin to see you out at the track again Derrick and getting it going even faster, I want to see some 12's up on the board. Get a higher stall converter and you'll really lay it down....

like I have been telling him, looser converter and it'd rocketship out of the hole...there wouldn't be the delay going into boost.

nope striped rear half

wait, 13 second 1/4 in a 940 with a 15g?

maybe a 940 in the 12s with a 15g next week

at the end of the day it started missing in the high rpms so i need to pull the plugs. also could be a simple kick down cable adjustment

I wonder if I would have similar numbers?
My 740 has:
15g @ 19-20 psi @ max setting, 3" turboback exhaust, fred's chips, adjustable FPR @ 3.5 bar, tomco 42 lb injectors, but currently has stock cam.

Just because the majority of people can't do it doesn't mean its unattainable. People too often confuse power and respectable time slips as being the result of lots of time/effort/money/parts versus the results of really knowing what you're doing. Most notably in my memory on this board previously would be Kenny and Sam, along with many others, have proven this time and time again.

I've seen 12's on a stock T3 in a 780 (I'm aware the T3 didn't come in there, he put it in) and 12's in a full interior 745Ti with a 13c on 225 street tires (both of these had significantly more work than Derrick's car). Many manage to over-complicate the process, Derrick did it right. And there's a lot more left to go. Start taking notes.

I love how stock looking 940 walks on a new Camaro

This gives me new hope to be in the 12's! Ill be doing the accumulator mod next week as well as a few other mods. My 1/8 mile was 8.3 at 82, and 60ft at 1.801. Ive never had a launch that hard and 3/4 way down the track realized that I was at about 80% throttle since I moved way back in my seat lol.

Here is my list of mods.

What blows my mind is your mods list is 3times larger than mine.

What type of fuel are you running and what altitude were you at at the track?

about 260-270whp depending on the weight, i am assuming stock weight. if it's lightened by any amount then less power.

I concur. Nicely done.
