I respectfully propose that we seperate the modified list into two. One for drag radials and one for street tires. My thinking is that overtime the modified list will be filled with entries of only drag radials. Seems street tires are a bit slower.

i wish i can find drag radials around here. I looked everywhere and no one sells them

i wanted to run one time with them and one time on low pressure street tires and see the difference in time.

Track prep and traction is HUGE.

Last year I went faster than this year even after adding the HP tune from Trifects, the ported throttle body and using drag radials.

Just have not had great traction yet, can't get my 60's down where they should be.

Price I pay to run at Lapeer.

I've had luck with 42psi front and 22 rears with street tires. I may try 20psi next time.

20-24 is normally a good sweet spot. I wouldn't go lower than 20 though...

In 1977 the recommend tire pressure as per the sticker in the glovebox was 23 pounds for a trans am SD. Times have def changed, you woulda been laughed outta the line if people knew you were running 35, that would be dangerous and crazy....

How 'bout we try a "Black Sunday" at our local strip, since that's now the only day they're open?
I think I might want to try something out.
That is, as long as the weather holds.
Ahhh I wish I could man, but I'm in Florida right now until Monday... What about the following weekend??

You need to post a pic of your slip and list out your mods and all other necessary info before I can update this.
