Your 60' times must be terrible... With 4.10's, off road H-pipe, and drag radials I ran a [email protected], but my 60' times were 1.83-1.87... Get some gears, they will make the car a totally different animal...

Ok, I'm not going to sit here and argue with you... but here are the times off my slip...

r/t .053
60' 1.834
330' 5.486
1/8 8.509
mph 82.58
1000 11.114
1/4 13.311
mph 103.94

I'm just trying to shed some light on the subject... I think alot of the cars on here could go faster if people understood the basics of drag racing.... Ie, it's all in the first 60-330 feet of the track... Suspension and tires are a must....

I am just wondering how your nearly stock 99 GT had the power to pull such a good 60' and yet trap in the 104's...

my GT with more mods than you and a 2.0 60' trapped at 99.09, and that was down from [email protected] so if i cut even more time off my 60', which i plan on doing, i dont see how i could trap 103, let alone a car with maybe 5-10 less hp

Might have something to do with the altitude? Or humidity... I was racing at Cecil County... I hear it's a fast track to begin with????

no idea where thats at lol

i just feel that 99% of the people on here know that a 13.6 is everything but impossible in a stock 99-04

it just doenst seem feasable

im not trying to start arguing or anything, and neither are you i can see, but youve got to understand where im coming from as well,
and your traps just arent adding up with your mods and 60'
thats all

Isn't getting them hot what you want?
Not on street tires. Street tires are meant to work within a certain heat range. If you heat them up too much, rather than get sticky, they just break down, and all the oils in the tires end up on the track. Thats why street car nights at the tracks are the worst times to go for traction.

Nitto's hook ok and are dencent for a daily, BFG's hook a bit better but they wont last as long, and MT's grip like a ****, but suck in the rain and wear extremely fast...

I ran DR's on my stock rear with gears, launching at 4000rpms, and never had a problem... But I think I got lucky
