    Well, I got some M/T ET Street Radials and had to go try them out. My best was a 12.8@107 with a 1.9 60'. I know theres more in the car, I just need to get the launches down. This was my first time out on DR's. It was weird having some traction, ha

    You should be able to do better than a 1.9 with those tires. Keep practicing.

    I pulled 1.96 on stock suspension and street tires in my vert.

    Yea, the times where it hooked hard it surprised me and kind of bogged. I just have to get used to it. I'm used to racing on street tires. The last time I went to the 1/8 in Savannah I spun the entire thing. So I'm not used to this whole traction thing, ha

    I cut a .01 60 ft time and a 1.8 sec 1/8 mile on street tires....
















    I dunno if the tracks broken beams had anything to do with those readings though :shrug:

    Likely a low 12 car with better driving.
