    With an M6 you need lots of practice to pull a good 60' time. You can buy sticky tires, but then you run the risk of taking out your 10 bolt.

    Tires? Launch RPM? Track temps? How many times have you raced before?

    Those 60's are killing you, they are horrible

    Get a decent pair of tires and slip the clutch. Dumping the clutch from any RPM on street tires is going to blow the tires off and net you the 60' times you are seeing currently.

    Get those 60's down to even 1.9's and watch what times you get.

    What was your MPH in the 1/8th and 1/4?

    Best i got on my 99 SS M6 was 13.8 on street tires. Bought a set of MT radials and got 13.3. Car was completely stock except for free mods and K&N filter and textralia clutch.
    Launched it at 4500-5000 once on MT's, don't recommend that on stock 10 bolt. Usually got off line at approx 3000 dumping it.

    went again last night and ran this

    2.20 60'
    5.95 330
    9.02 1/8
    80.78 mph
    11.61 1000
    13.75 1/4
    105.58 mph


    so i ran better but my 60' still blows...literally. i also had my girl riding with me and full weight. complete stock suspecsion and shocks and TT2's. i think i will be gettin some drag radials for next time. will be a few weeks tho. they are giving about half of the track complete new surface and they have a 10.5 outlaw competition and Nationals coming so it will be a few weeks before i get to go again.

    Did you ever get to the track anymore. Did you do anything else to the car.

    nope havent made it back to the track yet. they closed it down for a month to re-pave it for NHRA nationals and a few other things. I will be goin in the next few weeks tho. in the meantime i have lowered my car with BMR 1.25 lowering springs, adj panhard bar, lower control arms and relocation brackets. still ride good for stock shocks which will be gettin replaced here shortly

    New pavement could equal better times. What was your tire pressure at? You should have them around 25 to get grip. I am guessing your rear rims are 17X11's since they TT's. How new are your tires, and clutch? Lowering it won't make a difference unless you are road racing/autocross. Of course regular maintenance, oil, alignment, fuel injectors and so forth. If you have checked all these, then it is just keep practicing your launching.

    Lowering will make a difference. It will throw the pinion angle off, which affects how much traction you get on the launch.
