    Yeah with the mod's you have the nittos can not hang.... And not a bad time with tires spinning. Get some ET Streets or DR's and watch your 60' drop.

    track elevation here 619'
    air temp here 73.4
    altimeter setting here 29.9
    dew point here 52

    That adds up to a 1785' DA at the track with an elevation of 619'.

    That is a real good DA. With the correct tires you would have blown by the 12's and been in the 11's.

    damn near dead on the NUTS with a 12.38 guess

    Your trap speed is an indication of horsepower.........I don't think even a 1.7 60' foot time will get you in the 11's.

    Hehehe, I ran a better 60 foot time on my stock BFG all season radials That was with a 3400 stall and 3.23's out back.

    I'd say the nitto's aren't working for ya.

    He would have to do better than a 1.7 60 foot or get the trap speed up a bit. Trap speed seems a bit low for the camshaft you have or the HP claimed. Unless the car is heavier than you think.
    For the nice DA you had, I would have expected a better trap speed.

    It would still be a solid performer if you get a better tire on the back.

    The nitto's spun on him. Get a better tire that sticks and I bet he will bring up his trap speed as well.

    And my mid to low 12's was not far off as well. A mid to me is .50 and a low is .20 or .10. So he ran .08 better than a mid..
