    first time ever at the strip, ran 15.2 with a 2.1 60 ft and 90 mph trap. that trap has me a little confused, i would think that it should be higher.

    on a side note it was a good night because i ran against my bro-in-laws spec-v and roasted him. he ran 16.4. he was crying like a little baby

    It should be higher but it is a heavy convertible. What mods do you have?

    it was in the low 70's so the temp was not a factor

    am i correct in thinking that your r/t does not affect your e/t?

    your et is from the moment your tire brakes the stage beam to the time it hits the beam at the other end of the track
     
  12. so say if my rt is 2.295 and my et is a 12.9 at 89.4 is that possible

    I think you had a missprint there, if your doing 12.9x in the quarter there is NO WAY your trap is only 89MPH.......unless you hit the brakes at the top of the track :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh:

    The standard Nitto 555 Extremes are just a nice street tire, they do make a drag radial however, but that's a little drastic for your vert situation, you need a few more mods before that kind of traction becomes a necessity.
