My car has worked well on slicks on my local track, and I'm auto.

If OP is stick, slicks might be the way to go, they are more forgiving.

Generally sounds good.

If you've never made a track pass before, I suggest you tech in your car, park, and walk up to starting line area and watch folks make runs for a bit.

I have a sticky in the tire section, but you could run:

MT SR 28 x 6.00 x 17 (or 18)
MH Bias 28x17

The SRs are radials, drive great but much heavier than the MH.

More mods... why not right lol.

I think 3.70's would suffice too.

I'm going to flush my trans fluiid, do a new filter, and make some passes this summer. I'd like to crack the 10.8s.

Local friend made 480rwhp with same cam as you, and since you have the 5C and 3.91s, all you need is traction and the shift points to run 10s I'd think.

It would probably run solidly in the 10.80's with more converter... But that would be a hard one for me, the car drives so nice now.

You are looking for the best shift drop, Ben's comment about 10% past peak HP is a good guide. You want to have the RPMs in the best part of your power band.

Tim Erl had some good comments on reaction times over the years. Takes a fair amount of practice to get into the .0x with our cars.

The gear would help the 60 ft and the overall run though.
