Slicks seem to take off almost a whole secound off your time..... I've used them once unaware of their grip potential and almost broke my neck! lol....

But my Stang has to peform as a daily driver and I don't have a flat bed to trail my car to the track and I'm too lazy to change out the tiresfor skinnies/biggies.....

Yes, since this was a MMFF shout out and we needed the best times possible, we used brand new M/T slicks. You can see them wad up in the pics and vid, and that is how you yank the wheels and rip 60 ft's vs sticky street tires with stiffer sidewalls. You can have similar performance with ET streets and drive it too and from the track legally, but if you want the best track times, go with full slicks.

You should be able to dip into the high 12's with better weather and slicks if you are runing 13.40's in the heat. Checksuspension mods and the free stuff I posted earlier and practice driving, you get your timeslip!

Good Luck
Brian THR

Thats a hell of a set-up right there. Eventually, I'm gonna go with that exact suspension.

I don't think I'd want to remove weight just to lower my ET... and then re-install it...

The idea of removing weight to lower your ET's was simply for 1/4 mile times as stated. If you run the track on slicks, would you not take them off to drive to work and back? Same principle. Weight loss at the track is an easy and FREE way to reduce ET's, hence the post title, 12's on an budget.

Yep, HP means nothing without suspension and weight reduction. It took me awhile to figure mine out. EXCELLENT thread, Brian.

Nice car/thread.

Wouldn't that kind of grip with the brand new slicks wreak havoc on the stock spline and stock t-45? I'm concerned about running MT drag radials for that reason...

Was that englishtown or atco in the vid?

That sounds like Eddie Kraweic, the track manager at englishtown, in the background.
