lol geez. I have 3.55s and Nitto drags, ive only had 3 runs so far w/ my setup but my best time was approx. 4k launch with the tires heated up and at about 25psi, and shifting between 5800 and 6000. There was a little spinning but the car was still moving forward decent.

15? the back end was feelin squirly even at 25, i heard 20 is about the lowest u wanna go, i woulda done 20 but i got tired of letting the air out lol. Yeah also i was heating them in first gear, i think i shoulda done 2nd b/c they didnt really smoke much at all compared to how my friend used to smoke his in 2nd gear. Thanks for the advice, my goal was 13's last year and i got it ^_^

you have the 555Rs? I kind of disagree, i think they feel squirly b/c of the low pressure, on the highway at normal psi they dont feel squirmy at all, ive only experienced it when they have lowered psi, my friends did the same thing. I'll try lower psi next time

I've never had a problem at the track @ 15psi. Oh yeah, the 555's.
