13.6 with absolute full traction. Anywhere between 13.6 and 14.0 at best. Anything else between 14.0 to 14.5 cause its hard to stay consistent on street tires trying to get traction out of the dig when with slicks or radial you have no worries of trying to catch traction slipping the clutch. If you get in the 13's that's pretty dang good on street tires with that set up. Don't think you'll see a 13.6 though unless you got some slicks or radials. Your car is capably of running a 13.9 at best with those tires. and your time should fluctuate around, being on street tires, 13.9-14.5.

I learned this and figured that's why people told me sticky tires are important mods to fast cars so I went from 245 on 17 street nittos 555r's to slicks and knocked .3 in 1000 foot (.4 in 1/4) when I figured up my times before I got my slicks I was off by 3 tenths off from what I figured from my mods when I got slicks I got exactly what I figured up and was off by like .0XXX which is really accurate. But once I got slicks I experienced wheel hop which led to more upgrades which will now result in better times. Hahah it's one thing after another...power, traction to suspension. It'll eat your billfold pocket one hundred dollar bill after another...
