    118 mph with 3.90

    Is something wrong with my m6. With stock street tires I'm trapping 118 bouncing off a 6800 redline about 100 ft from traps. Don't understand. Shouldn't it be 129 or so. Is it because I'm spinning too much in 1st.

    If you are spinning off the line your MPH will increase down on the other end.

    Horrible. 12.3. 2.0 60 ft. It's like something holds the car back.

    I run 12.30's at 108. With a 1.7 60 ft. You're spinning like crazy. Get a set of 15" wheels with a 275/60 tire then you'll get moving. I leave at 3,500 rpm with a 4,000 rpm stall and dead hook. If you don't have lca's or relocate brackets get those too.

    The problem is MMP. Unless it's a big event you aren't going to hook for $&*#, that and all the damn FWD cars going through the water box thinking they need to with street tires throwing water all over the track. Probably still need me to drive for ya though . J/K. Actually I hven't been since it opened back up is it still the same as it was before?

    That's really odd that you're bouncing off of a 6800 rpm limiter at 118 with a 3.90. Only other variable I can think of is the tire size and it sounds like that's just the stock 17" tires. Originial T-56 still in the car?
