View Full Version : New personal best, isnt enough

10-11-2011, 01:32 PM
Just went to the track Sunday and got a new best time of 11.83@115 with a 1.71 60'. My first 4 runs were on a 28/9-15 MT slick, the last 3 were on my Nitto 555r drag radials, 245/50/16. My 60' was faster with the DRs oddly enough, but maybe I just wasnt heating the slicks up enough. The car is on stock springs, bilstein shocks, tubular upper and boxed lower rear arms. That's it for suspension mods. Last time I weighed the car it was 3450 with me inside, I think I shaved around 50 lbs since then.

Basically my question is will adding a set of drag shocks up front and either a helper bag or anti roll bar in the rear going to drastically help. I plan on getting some drag wheels but I'm not sure whether to put a radial or a slick on it. The front wheels are pretty heavy almost 40lbs, and it was very close to lifting.

I was pitted a row over from you. Wasn't sure it was you or else I woulda watched one of your passes. The track was working like crap on Sunday. Sounds like the tune really woke it up though! I had the Navy Blue Metallic camaro with the cowl hood and Nevada plates.

I was watching that car towards the end that thing moves. I had nasty wheelhop on the last pass and I called it quits. It was getting pretty rowdy there at the end with the grudge racers. I had a blast though I may be going up there in the next few weeks ill send you a pm

I would go drag shocks all around w/ trick springs up front and the drag bag out back w/ a set of M/T Drag Radials or Nitto 555R's ! I cut 1.61 60ft on Nitto's w/ a bolt-on Car and 3600 Stall !

just curious, but where did you pick up 9 mph?

Time to update your sig. Nice pass

Front shocks and a set of skinnies would really help the 60 out.

Cool thanks everyone.

Not sure where exactly I gained but I picked up 74rwhp on the dyno thanks to an awesome tune. The mail order was really holding me back.

I think ill pick up some skinnies, front drag shocks, and a rear bag and see where it gets me. I was ready to put a Pat G cam in the car but all I'm going for is 11.5 because I don't want to cage the car.

I wouldn't worry about needing a bar at 11.50. I went under that Sunday at GLD. :secret: GLD will give you some latitude, NLR doesn't care, and Byron usually doesn't say anything either. I'm going to go back to GLD friday for RSD pending the weather.
