3000 DA I think you'd pick up 2-4 mph in better air.

Who tunes your car btw, just curious.

How do you like the combo, I bet it's pretty sick from a roll.

This tune was done by Mike at Vengeance Racing in Cumming, GA.

I love the combo, and from a roll it was a little scary the first time matted it. My passenger turned pale white with eyes as big as saucers.

I drive to the track. 35 miles one way to Silver Dollar and 105-110 miles one way to Valdosta.

Just put the MT tires on 2 weeks ago, so can't give you any feedback on wear life. Sorry.

So you probably don't want to mount up some slicks on other rims and change them at the track.

Naw, that is out of the question. I have a chronic lung condition and can't change tires or do anything that strenuous any more. My wife is good about going to the track with me and lowering the air pressures, etc., as things that make bend over are the most difficult.

By the way, not looking for pity, it's just the way it is.

Rhino, didn't get it. My ISP has been down most of the evening and I'm guessing they lost some emails in the process. Please send again to jbrown13@windstream.net.

Thanks,
Jeff

UPDATE:

A big thanks to Mr. Nasty, his son and grandson for meeting me at SGMP on Friday night and helping me out.

The first thing they corrected was my burnout. I wasn't getting my tires hot enough and I was pulling too far forward when starting my burnout.

The second thing they noticed was that my car was bogging down every time it shifted gears. We surmise the motor is hitting the rev limiter at the same time it shifts, but that's going to be up to my tuner to fix.

The end result was I did break into the 11s (just barely) and did have my best ever 60' time.

Thanks again Mr. Nasty.

My car has a 3700 converter, 370 gear and it will 60' in the high 1.7's - 1.8's with street tires leaving the traction control on.
Have you tried running it with the TC turned on just to see what it does?
If I try shutting TC off it spins and shifts into second and then bogs. With my DR's I turn of TC and my 60' is in the 1.6's with a little spin still with a better track should get 1.5's. I had a hard time hooking even with the DR's, definitely helps a lot to really smoke em.

Just curious do you have aftermarket trailing arms yet? If not grab you a set of BMR's and enjoy...

They made a world of difference on my launches on low pressure stock tires.

Oh yea traction control off launcing at about 2400rpm.

Yes, I have BMR trailing arms and adjustable toe rods, as well as a suframe and differential bushing kit.
