    Default I'll never buy slicks again!

    I asked awhile back about drag radials and getting them to work and I think I'm close, I got my car down to a 1.30 60ft with normal et streets. Full upr susp and a racecraft ARB. This was all foot braking too, gonna try the tbrake next time. Thanks guys for all the advice

    Lol it was a 6.23. @108 not what I want but I'm getting there. I'd like to see 5.8-5.9 before I pull the engine and plan a build

    That's sweet, what tire are you running the new X275? What did you learn to cut the 60fts that low. Congratulations

    Just the normal 276/60 et street. C4 4k stall PTC. Moser spool , 3:73, upr k, coil overs 14-175, strange struts/shocks, racecraft ARB. Tvs 2.3 3.0/#4, never had it on a dyno, all datalogged on the track/street. Not sure on power. Biggest thing I learned is stiffer is better in shock/struts settings. Took a lot of tweaking for sure.

    Yea man it takes some time. I got mine to a 1.42 on a stock upper only with a little spray. Can't wait to see what the TVS will do with the 2.8 stock lower combo. What fuel you running?

    What's a "regular" Et street? As opposed to what?

    Nice short times BTW and that's what $$$ in suspension and auto. will get ya. Slicks help cover up those needs I guess.

    The regular ET Street I believe is the old style 275 compared to the 275 Pro tire

    You have the car suspension working very well!!
    My best ever on is a 1.34 @111 with the 6 speed.
    An auto would be so nice!
