    from what I know. no. our cars do not get good traction on the stock tires. I was spinning at 60 mph in my a4. I ran a 13.8 but it was 100 degrees out. im stock. you need a tune they are getting 10-25 rwhp out of a good tune.

    Sounds like solid bottom 13's with the potential for 12 if it hooks. You have higher traps and better '60 foot times than my camaro and I hit 13.2's and 3's all day long in bad weather (hot and 28%+ humidity) spinning yet I usually manage 8.6's @ 84 ish mph in the 1/8 th with like 2.1 and 2.2 60'. I don't see why you wouldn't be in the 12's if you can hook it.

    I would say your a 13.1 car. look under the drag race section and look at the 1/8th to 1/4 conversion sticky. thats where i got the 13.1 from

    Thats about the same 69 foot time as me, i run 12.8-13flat at 110mph. With ls2 or ls1 car that hardest part is the first 60 feet, if you are making a 1.9 you should be good for some high 12s.

    Slicks, one piece drive shaft, SPEC clutch, L92/76 head intake package with .600 lift cam, and a DYNO tune all for next year. The track only has one more weekend and i won't be able to make it. The weather is turning bad. Time to park and do more Mods... This is my daily driver except for winter. It should still be street-able right? I heard about 550 at the crank...

    Im goin self port and polished heads, cam, new valve train, intake manifold. That should be good for around 400-420rwhp. With the new clutch, rear end 4.10 gears and drag radials should be an mid 11 second car next year. I also have a supra, that ran low 11s, looking for mid 10s next year.

    Your first eighth mile slip would be 12.9x at around 109 in the quarter.

    The 8.37 post would put you in the low to mid 12.8x at about high 108 mph.
