I went to US 41 today. After getting a hole in one of the 555R's on the way there we finally made it. I got a total of 10 passes. The last 4 were when someone had a plug and pluged the hole in my tire.
During the last 4 runs, which had the 555R's, i ran a
12.59!!!!!! Way better then what i thought i was able to do, i was guessing a max of 12.85.
My mods are in my SIG.
I cant wait to do it again, it was so fun!!!!!

Thanx to Dan00Hawk for the invite, was a fun time, and also thax for fixing my tire, it helped ALOT...

The best thing is i did not even stall the converter. I just held the brake and then punched it. I tried later stalling to around 2k-2400k and it spun way way too much off the line, so i did not even try the full 3000k-3100k lock up.

Yep that what i am thinking. So i am looking at New replacements for the 555r now. Looking at the Nitto NT01 275/35/18. Looks like a more trackable tire but yet just barely street legal. Will probly hook alot better on the track or street then the 555r

Or you could do 2 drag radials just for the track. That's what I'm doing. That way you're not burning up your street tires. Are you close to Byron or GLD?

Congrats on the times Wes! Although I enjoyed winning the one run where we lined up because you were still spinning on street tires... :) Good to see what she could do once you got the DR's put on. :cool:
