You hit the nail on the head Ricardo.
The drag radials DEFINITELY have a HUGE impact on times.
I cant express how much they help when doing a run.
I ran a GT with less mods than me when I had mine and we were equal drivers. He had a short throw shifter and it was before I had mine. I had street tires and he had drags.
I was PISSED when he kept so friggin close to me.
BTW short throw shifters can also help you cut those times down.
A SERIOUS driver mod. Especially if you are not a fast, good shifter.
Short throw makes it a flick of the wrist saving you time each time you shift and if fugggin adds up I'm telling you.
So for all those wanting a cheap mod to cut your times AND put a fun aspect into it. GET A SHORT THROW SHIFTER.
It was actually a favorite mod of mine along with the cams. I'd say gears too but they are such a common mod that I didn't count them in despite the BIG ummmph difference.
Again given there were equal drivers. I still say in reality the SS would have the win pretty easily.
Even though I HATE having to say that.
But if we are talking him with DR's and the SS completely stock with just an daily joe driver... welp.. we all know
the street brings some wild results. Especially given driver abilities.
