Default So what went wrong?! 1/4 Mile Video Included..

My previous time was a 13.2 @104 and now my best was [email protected]


Are tires really going to make a difference in that?

I have an intake / tune/ lots of suspension. Still running stock pirellis.

What should I expect with drag radials?

You are leaving alot on the table with the 60ft. Get some good drag radials and your 60 ft times should be in the 1.8 - 1.9 range. You'll be close to the 12's then.

a 2.39 60 ft is terrible, you must be spinning off the line. If you can get your 60 ft down to a 1.9 you should be low 13s or high 12s. Roughly every tenth you drop off your 60ft will reduced your ET by 2 tenths.

Your MPH was the same as last time, so that tells me it was totally your launch. Bad 60' and pretty good 2nd gear scratch as well.
