About half a second slower than u should if you go to MOKAN. But seriously, I guess 11.4. I hear it's supposed to be pretty crappy weather here for a while, so pray for some sunshine by Friday. I won't be able to make it Friday, but good luck to you.

12.2-12.4 assuming your full weight on street tires and you don't have much track experience.

yea, do you have tires? if not, it's gonna be a bitch to hook up. Their track prep is pretty awful. ive only hooked once there, but then again i don't have much experience at the track either. I'm writing this assuming you are racing it locally at mokan...

Low-mid 11s if you have some sticky tires. I assume you do since you have a 12 bolt

12.27 @ 114.6 That's my guess and I'm sticking to it.

well my best was 12.60 at 115. That was with an easy launch. I tried luanching it hard and just spun like hell. I found some slicks for next weekend, and hope to run 11's.

It was very consistant 12.6's i ran 12 times, and probably 6 of the runs was a 12'6. I got beat off the line almost everytime, but passed whomever i raced by second gear (i only raced the street cars) 1 time i got a decent hook with a 2.0 60' but missed third, and still made a 12.69. but most my 60's were 2.2 some 2.1.

One race, when i shifted into third, i didnt miss the gear, but the shifter went way passed where it should have gone, and didnt go into gear. The shifter hit the ac controllers??? It was hard to pull out of third also. It only did that one time, scarred the **** out of me, but ran fine after that.

I found slicks for $20 a peice they are 28x12.5x15 i beleive they are off a circle track car, but will still work alright on the track i think I will put some of those on, or at least DR's next time. BTW those of you who have heard me talking about my friend with the charger, he ran his first run at 14.3 at 97. Then kept getting slower and slower to a last run of 15.3 @ 92...

I wouldn't go back to the track and try to launch hard with a broken Torque arm.

If you get your 60' down you should be able to hit 11s.. what is the DA there? You should have enough *** you trap 120+ at sea level.

What kind of Ecstas were they? I've had Supras on my car for the longest (still have on front) and they did not hook for ****, even though they were advertised to be the best traction tires they offer for our cars.
*EDIT*
Besides, of course, their drag radials.
