Yeah those number are on nitrous..i had been having trouble all day hooking up, my 60ft time had been trash, but the GTO i was up against jumped the tree on this run as you can see by his reaction time and that threw me off on my launch otherwise i think this run would have been a lot better. I know i can hit mid/low 13s

Hmmm... I thought the 60' looked good for street tires, but the trap speeds looked low for nitrous???

What did it run before the nitrous was installed?

reaction times dont affect the e/t's. the clock doesn't start until your car moves, reaction time only counts on bracket racing. However the trap does seem super low for nitrous, what were the traps before? also is the car pi swapped or still npi?

Yes, ET only measures the time from when the car begins moving until it reaches the finish line, so reaction won't effect the ET.

A comparison of trap speeds with and without nitrous will give a very good indication of how much power you are gaining with the spray. How big of a shot are you running? Is it a wet kit? What size jets are you running for fuel and nitrous?

I feel like your set-up is not optimized and with a little more info we may be able to help you run a bit better...
