To get somewhat of a baseline. Walked away with 15.15 @ 93.5. Had to roll into it because the tires broke so bad. Did a glorious <b>FWD</b> burnout though!<p>Oh yea...and this was there:<br><IMG SRC="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b19/BtownVolvo/Photo0179.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b19/BtownVolvo/Photo0180.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://209.85.122.83/2/110/0/e8657//e8657.gif" BORDER="0"><p>It couldn't break 11.3 though. Still sexual to see fire balls coming out the back though!

That's good. Especially considering with my "mods" which only consist of exhaust and intake really....I ran a 15.1 @ 94 last time I went to the track.

Re: Took the car to the track... (cicatrizdare)

Your trap speed is what matters anyway in my opinion. Been drag racing for a few years now and have had runs in the 13's trapping 120+ MPH lol, normally speeds good for low 12's if not high 11's with a good 60'. All that shows is you had loss of traction off the line. With a set of drag radials your ET will more appropriately match your trap speeds. Seat time is key <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Took the car to the track... (ForceFed Motorsports)

I figure I could knock off a good .30 seconds if I had drag radials. Very first run I just slammed it off the line and spun them until it hooked at about 20'-30'. From there, the "off version" of STC decided to slow the wheels down and let me go. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>As I said, the only thing those tires were good for was a 3rd gear burnout <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

What were your 60' times?

Not bad for street tires man. Nice. Drag radials should be able to pull off anything from a 1.8-1.9 and slicks is another story.<p>One tenth off your 60' is usually about two tenths off your ET <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
