Default 12.58 @ 114.98

I took my 2002 camaro z28 to the track 1-21-11 for the first time and had major traction issues but still managed to run a 12.58. i'll be back up there next friday to try and lower my time.

Your 60ft and 1/8th really reflect your traction issues.

Decent set of rear tires with your mph your 1/8th should be high 7s and 1/4 should be 11s if not low 12s.

Wow those tires didn't look that good at all. How old are they and how much tread do they have left?

I bought the car 1-4-11 and they came with the car. the previous owner had put these on maybe 4 months back and the car sat in his driveway most of the time. I bought it off of a friend, but Ima give them one more go friday then im gonna have to get some mickey's if they still don't grab. it was extremely cold so that may play a small part in it but i doubt it. You can hear that I even scretch going into second slightly.
