Default First 1/4mile results

First time out to the track with this car. Weather was overcast 60* raining in the morning. Track Prep wasnt so good no one seemed to be running where they should be. Plus i have 6 year old good year eagles and 4.10's so traction was an issue.
Best run of the day:
60ft-2.12
330ft-5.793
1/8 ET-8.779
1/8-82.87MPH
1000' ET-11.324
1000' MPH-96.61
1/4 ET-13.443 @106.83
I know its got more in it. Next time out to the track i will have new tires or some DR's.

BFG Drag radial TA are good if you really need a street tire. If you want any real traction for the strip you need to get a real track tire and keep your street tire on the street. Like anything you really can't have both worlds, a true street tire and plenty of traction at the strip.

I was looking at thoes. The look like a nice tire. I havent decided if im going to get a DR or a street tire. What is the life of a DR on the street?

Not long at all because you will reck the car if you get into a drip of rain.

That's not true . I drive mine in the rain without a problem . When I picked my ride up after getting it dynoed , I drove 70 mph in the rain on the parkway for 20 miles . I just use common sense and a little extra caution around turns . They re supposed to last 10,000 -15,000 miles . We'll see about that . I only have @ 2,000 on them now . Still look good .I bought the nitto's because they have actual tread on them .Not like BFG's or M/T 's . The Nitto's were a better choice for me because its almost a full D/D and they have very good street maners .

That's not true at all. It's all about how you drive. I had to drive home 40 miles in snow on ET Street Radials before. It wasn't *that* bad. I wouldn't recommend it, but you control the situation.

At the minimum, put a Nitto Drag Radial on the car. I had 18 inch BFG Comp T/A KDW tires on my 02 WS6, that went low 1.8 60's all day.
