Im the 236 on the right. Just curious if i should be running faster. Mods are 5.7 6 speed x air intake long tubes x pipe. Half ass tune. Tires were nt555r2s. Only weight savings were emptied trunk.
For sure. I did weak burn outs. Had a broken sway bar link i didnt realize so i was more or less walking out on the start. I need to work on my clutching for sure off the line. Tire pressure was 20 psi when warm.i don't have experience with the r2's, but your 60 foot tells the story. a drag radial should not be getting you 2.1 second 60 foots. i did have the original 555r's, and they were not a great drag radial. have tried BFG drag radials, mickey thompson, and hoosier, and they were all better. some have said that the 555r's just needed a lot of heat to hook, so a longer burnout, but i dunno. they made a decent street tire, though.
that is assuming track prep was ok and you had your tire pressures correct. also, if you are a stick car, you have to control your hit out of the hole. too much hit and your tires will just spin.
hmm. longer burn out should help you. do it in 2nd gear, should get you more wheelspeed and heat them up quickly.For sure. I did weak burn outs. Had a broken sway bar link i didnt realize so i was more or less walking out on the start. I need to work on my clutching for sure off the line. Tire pressure was 20 psi when warm.
Thats what im hoping plus the pedders hd 0 drops. Already have every bushing done in the rear and diff insert.yeah the rear one matters a little. fix the end link and then roast them suckers before you stage. you'll get a 1.8-1.9 60 foot at least and be in the low 13's.
