Slip the clutch around 4,000 rpm and I would think 12.6-12.8 that's my guess.

try to cut a 60 foot under 2.0 is a plus . the more you can improve the 60 the more you can do overall . make sure you line up right with the racing lines at the track for better traction and pull . being you have street tires go around the water box and just drop the clutch before you line up to clean off your tires and put some heat in them .
you will do good bro . anything under a 13 second pass with a m6 with light mods is a good start . keep us up on your results and good luck !

I finally got my first ever run in last night, running a 13.5 @ 107, pretty nervous and excited, especially against a 05-06 vette w/ huge cam which ran a 12.2. my 60 time was a 2.3:barf: anyways had fun cant wait to get back and get some better starts.

2.3 is pretty bad guess you had stock street tires? Also what is your elevation, with those mods you should have run more than 107 mph.

I'd get an extra set of race only wheels and tires, then get the right tire for your setup. Sorry but I am not a nitto fan.

get rid of those nittos and get you a pair of MT drag radials and try again.youll better that 13.5 not too good on the rain or wet roads just watch out.
