How did I do?

Well last night I ran 3 passes at the local track (only and 1/8) with a best of :

60ft - 2.15
1/8 - 8.45
@90 MPH

all on street tires 275/35R19 at 36 PSI

is that good, bad, decent, horrible?

BTW my mods are 93 octane tune, CAI, O/R X, 3.73's

Probably sounds dumb, but until joining this forum, I didn't know there were drag strips that were only 1/8 mile. I always thought they were all 1/4 mile.

Ohio valley drag way is south west of louisville. And I wish we had a 1/4 but all we got is the 1/8. I've thought about dr's but that would only encourage me to race more haha

Yea there's 1/8, 1/4, and I'm pretty sure there are even some 3/8 tracks. Then obviously there's the standing mile, wnt2gofst has posted videos of street type racing on a track from a 40mph roll. There's all sorts of tracks!!

What would be a great 60ft time on street tires?

1.8 is what I've heard is good for street tires. Can't imagine being under that. Although, made a big difference dropping tire pressure to ~28PSI.

Re: How did I do?

1.6 to 1.8 is good for dr's and 1.8 to 2.0 is good for streets dropping air in your rear, and raising it in the front is always a huge plus. Your letting more meat to the ground in the rear, and having less rolling resistance in the front. also removing the front sway bar helps too.

I would say that is very good. Wish you had a full track to see your 1/8 to 1/4 MPH pick up.

Compare to my slip. I ran a 12.9 and my 8th was 8.400, quicker than yours, but you have 90 MPH and I had 85.26. Meaning you were hauling ***.

I'm on the right. I say with a 1.99X you could nail a 8.3 and maybe 92 MPH.



Get your 60 down to 2.0 flat or a 1.999 and you would improve vastly.

275/40/18 at 35 PSI

Yea, the only reason I hit 90 I think is because I never shifted out of 3rd and revved my engine to somewhere between76-7800 rpms... Scared the bejesus out of me lol. That helped me realize that I need to be shifting aroun 75-7600 for sure though

Did you change your rev limit or just shut it off?

Re: How did I do?

tbh I'm not sure, I never imagined I would rev it that high and I never have asked, but the more I think about it I'm pretty sure it's 7800 because I did hit it one time before

Your car should definitely be in the 7s. Practice will get you there. Lower that rear tire pressure a little and get that launch down

I'm surprised you have your tires at 35. Do 18s require more pressure than 17s (what I have) or is it just up to the tire?

Wow. You think 7's? That would be impressive. That would dump him in the 11's easy.

Mine were set to 40 when I got my 13.088. I dropped to 35 and hot the 12.998. A good tire is a good tire.

Seen the same mods run high 11s at the local track. 7.6 or so will be close to 11s

Here's a vid of a 6 w/ supposedly a 1.9 60ft. Looks like it has identical mods as you on stock tires. Slower 1/8th time but my guess is your 60ft could improve. Haven't been to the track with mine yet though.

Re: How did I do?

All you need is some drag radials!! I have a set of jegs 15" direct from their site with 5.5" back spacing and 275/60 15 radials. Youll be able to get that under 8 for sure! My best run in the 1/8th on my streets was a 8.034 @89 1.8 60 ' then with the radials 7.8@90. Some good stickeys and youll get it!

Don't you start going down the hill in hp around like 6000 rpms?

That's what everyone says, but I got my fastest time on that first run with a stock intake and my fastest speed on that run as well

Re: How did I do?

I just ran mine for the first time tonight. Full tank of gas (was hoping it would help curb wheelhop), Roush axleback (only mod), ran a best of 13.13 @ 110.8 w/ a 2.16 60'. 110 was trap speed all night. I tried messing w/ tire pressure but couldn't get anything better out of it, and had to pedal 1st gear until it hooked because of the wheelhop. Felt like something was going to break! Also, I ran out of gear in 4th every time ~150ft from the finish line. A little too short to justify shifting to 5th. I might try short shifting into 5th next time.

A set of drag radials will really help you out and get you to hook up! IMO Mickey Thompson are the best!

i'm betting that your power falls off more around 6700-7000. Try changing your shifting points. No point in winding it out that far where the power is falling off.

Dyno shows drop off is starting around 6800 and holds ok to about 7300 and dropping so you probably would be quicker to shift
