    seems pretty good to me. What '60 are you getting with the DR's?

    Eh. I am not impressed actually. DRs alone should get those times if not better. But I suppose that is very good if this was your first time racing the car.

    1st run .754 reaction and 2.103 60'
    2nd run .669 reaction and 2.052 60'
    3rd run .066 reaction and 2.061 60'
    4th run .368 reaction and 2.050 60'
    5th run .264 reaction and 1.962 60'
    6th run .143 reaction and 1.973 60'

    I think my clutch started to slip on the 5th run(at 1st thought I was spinning and didnt think much of it until I left the track) I could not hit the gas in any gear without it slipping on the way home but I made it home and will install a new clutch and I think I will go with some 3.73 gears.

    With those 60' times that clutch is slippin for sure. Better clutch and some practice and you should be in the 12's no problem.

    My clutch is slipping on street tires, not even drag radials. Last time at the track, I had tons of traction to the asphalt, but none on the flywheel...I ran 13.70 at 102.79. 60' was 2.125.

    I plan to remedy that with a stage 3 clutch from someone like exedy or zoom for next year. I suspect I'll see a better time with that alone...and I'll likely be throwing in a billet flywheel just for kicks.

    Ditto. I am wondering if my LS6 clutch sucks.
