Hey fellow S/S guys! I'm headed to the track this Wednesday night! I'm looking for some improvement over my last trip. New mods are new bfg kdw 2's, new wheels (not big little set up :/) and 4.10's. Other mods are mid pipe and cat back, and a canned tune. Here is my best et slip and video. I'm in the left lane. What do you guys think I can do?

I'm sure you know your 60ft is what's killing you, getting that beast to hook to a 1.7 - 1.8 and BAM !!! mid 11's, hopefully the gears and tires are going to help that much. And with a trap speed like that, maybe even lower. Good luck.

LOL your other left.

Crash with some good traction you should be able to hit some low 13s.

LOL A second with a better sixty would be awesome. All jokes aside, getting that sixty down to 1.9 will help alot.

I wish I could do my other left lol. I was just happy I broke into 13's on my first trip to the track. My friends were placing bets that I wouldn't get out of 14's at all, ******** lol. At least he didn't launch well. I know my 60' sucks *** but in my defense, that was my first time ever on the strip and I had bald *** all season tires. I hoping with my new street tire that I'll hook better. I'm mounting some new wheels that weigh 8-10 lbs lighter than these deep dish bullitts that I have. That should have some effect since the rotational mass load will be lightened. Does anyone think a 1.9 60' is a possibility on bfg kdw 2's? And ube's if I drove my car only 200 miles a year I'd ditch the IRS...maybe



Any predictions???

OHHhhhh, my left. My bad. Lol

Heck yeah 1.9's are doable, then BAM !!! Low 13's

I'm on the smartphone app so I can't see your sig or your mods, but should ask is this a manual or auto.

I was hella wondering is he serious or being an *** haha. Ya I'm in the left lane. I'm a manual, x-pipe, cat back, 4.10's, canned tune. I need more power but imma cheap ***. I'd love to run low 13's but I think I'll be happy with a sub 13.5. I was thinking my trap ain't that good lol.

A 1.9 sixty is doable in any rear drive car. Just gotta learn to peddle it out of the hole. Takes practice. The BFG are good tires. The trap speed seams normal to me for that year Mustang.

Lol, I'll bet I'm a bigger cheap *** than you. Everything on my car came from Craigslist or swap meets. I'm so cheap, the only new parts I've ever bought for my car were brake pads, and even that was a struggle.

As for you 60ft, practice, practice, practice. After I did the T5 swap, my first track outing got me a 1.9 , down from 2.2 with the auto. Then a 1.8, then a 1.7, playing around with tire pressure, rpm, and clutch release, I've done 1.66 on all stock suspension. Well it is lowered 2". Now I can consistently hit low 1.7's . Get those tires hot, and raise your launch rpm to 3000/3500 to start with and play with the clutch release till it feels like something is gonna break.

-1100 right now... it's been below 0DA here most of the week. On the way to work it's been as low as -1600DA. Car is actually a handful but with a busted transmission it's all a big tease. Wish I could share this crap with you man, I bet you could squeeze a 12 second pass out of this air.

Traction,traction, traction... Lack of it! I don't know what to blame it on but I'm sure it was a combination of too much tire pressure and lack of prep on the track.

We are blessed here really... unless I race on new years day (usually snow on the ground) I bog off the line on street tires. I've watched the track guys leave their shoes behind on the starting line (not kidding).

If you see green you are late. Hint leave on the last yellow. 1.2 light won't beat much

Crash, sorry to hear about the traction. Airing those KDWs down won't do any good. You're just going to have to either back way off and live with leaving easy, or get yourself some DRs. I vote DRs and a 12.9 slip!

Thanks stone. I was thinking the same idea and just ponying up for a dedicated drag tire. Crazy thing is I was leaving from 1500-2000 and slipping the clutch as best as I could. Anything higher than a 2000 launch would result on wheel hop. Thankfully my friend invested in a tire changing machine and offered that when we go to swap out our street tires to drag radials. Kinda made me happy. I'll post my slips soon but they are truly dreadful.
