Hey OP. Did Jamie tell you yet that he went 10.99 9 years ago when the 5th Gen first came out. I hear it every opportunity he gets.

Your 6 speed is a different game though. I wouldn't know what to start at.

If the track prep is good i can go 1k to 1100 if not i'm between 700-800. Fronts at 40. Rears at 24 with a small burnout. Typically cut 1.9 on stock rubber.

Not too bad for a L99 and stock tires
Over at Great Lakes Dragaway, I've gone 12.7 with pretty much the same mods on stock tires.

But on 20x275x40 stock size 555R Nitto Drag radials on stock size rims, have gone 12.37@112 1.85 at GLD too.

I'm not sure the tires will hook my new converter, I'll find out the 2nd time I hit GLD this coming Tuesday.

Deals come up for used ones all the time, got mine used.

Very cool!! Can't wait to find some tires so I can bring home a mid-12's time slip.

Sounds almost identical to my best run with the MT drag radials. I ran a 12.37 at 114 with a 1.845 60ft. I only ran the car with the DR that one day as it was at the end of last season. With more time i think i could have gotten a 12.2. My mods were CAi, ported and polished TB, Kooks headers(1 7/8"), MBRP cat back, JRE tune with Trinity. I tried launching between 2000 and 4000 rpms. 2000 bogged and 4000 was too harsh. 3500 seemed perfect. The DR also helped greatly with wheel hop during shifts.
I got the Mickey Thompson 18 radials because I knew I would increase hp or trade up to a ZL1.
