What I can trap at the track with my mods?

I haven't been able to go to the track to run my car due to this bipolor weather here in texas. I know to take off the front sway bar and tower to help out, but my main deal is seeing what I should be able to run?

Re: What I can trap at the track with my mods?

13's would be my guess. Street tires I'm guessing?

On street tires it could be anywhere depending on how bad you spin, with a good run on street tires i would say low 14s--high 13s or so. With slicks you might get lower into the 13s

Re: What I can trap at the track with my mods?

Re: What I can trap at the track with my mods?

TRAP = MPH
ET = Time

Trap 103-105mph.

Slicks + 10 bolt = gamble. With a low stall you'd probably be fine, but those darn 10 bolts are hit or miss. I've seen guys run stock ones into the low 11's every weekend at the track. Then I blew one apart on the street.

I ran 13.6 @ 105mph one street tires a long time ago. That was at around 1500ft above sea level with just a few bolt on's and street tires.

Re: What I can trap at the track with my mods?

^yup, my buddy cut 1.6 60s on his 10 bolt dumping the clutch at 5k on ET streets. it whined a little, but lasted all season. he just sold it

id run a nitto 555R if you want traction in the rain and get 15-20k miles on them. ET streets if you want to consistently dead hook, only will get about 10k though beating the crap out of them. The nittos were the best tire ive owned, but im not making 450+hp

street tires? im gonna say 13.9@ 104

what gears? thats huge, im assuming 3.23s?
