So I went to the track yesterday & I'm having some trouble understanding what happen with my time slips. What I don't understand is why my e/t's are lower but my mph are higher? This is compared to the last time I went. The difference in mods from last time & this was bbk LT headers w/catted xpipe! Also if u look at one of the time slips I had a 2.5sec lower et but my mph was higher & that was against a 3.7 with 3.55 gears. Thanks for any info!

It's because your 60'. Your mph is higher because your car has more power now. If you were to get a 60' like you did the first times your et would be quicker and your trap speed will be higher. It's all in your 60' man

Your 60-330foot is the difference. On your best run your 330 was almost .4 better than your worst run. Your going to need to cut a sub 2 second 60 if you want really good times.

Ok yea that makes sense! So to cut that 60 foot down I need to get those rear tires to grip better correct??

Yea I know some fatty rear tires & suspension is next on my list! I just didn't think the LT headers would make me spin so much!

Do you do a long smokey burnout? And if so, do you have street tires?

I am on street tires. & one run did a good burn out & another run I just spun them quickly & I got pretty much the same results. Do u recommend heating up street tires?? Also I switched rims & tires from my stock 215 to some 235 & that dropped my et.

I would recommend avoiding the water box if you can and giving them a quick spin. Dont burn em out but just clean em off. Street tires get slick when hot.
