hoping for 12's
my personal best on shit street tires, catback with a cutout and a lid is 13.35 @106
since then i've gotten the LS7 clutch, and this week im putting on my new NT05R drag radials, UMI tunnel mounted torque arm and subframe connectors. I've also got lakewood LCAs.
hoping the 10 bolt doesnt take a shit on me

Then don't dump the clutch
The car is more than capable

you and me both. I just got 315 nitto 555's to put on some 17x11's rims I got. My best so far is a 13.065 with true duals, lid, tune, UMI LCA's, ADJ panhard, and the stock 17x9 firehawk WO's.
If it could clock my spit... I could spit in to the 12's at the finish line.

give it like five good runs any more and your looking for trouble

What was your previous 60' time? FYI - The 555R's suck at the track. They are great on the street though. I've read the NT05R's are more aggressive so I'm interested in seeing what kind of 60' time you cut with them.
I tried dumping the clutch with my 555r's at the track. They wanted to still spin some even after a long burnout. My best 60' time was 1.906 with them.It's stock.

for that 13.35 run it was a 2.05 sixty footer.
my buddy has et streets on his camaro and he said the nt05r's seem to be nitto's answer to the et streets

With my 60' time of 1.906 I ran a 13.16. If you are able to cut your 60' time down into the 1.8X with those tires, you can probably break into the 12's. It might be hard pressed though. A rule of thumb is for every .1 seconds you cut off your 60' time, it results in about .2 seconds off your 1/4 mile.
Let us know how those tires work out at the track.
Do you have LCA relocation brackets?

I'm at 1.94 in the 12's you guys sure your grabbing 3rd and not 5th?

Let us know how the NT05R's do at the track . I am considering M/T et streets . My nittos 555r's are working well now with my stock engine (1.72 60 ft), but I dont know if theyll stick with some more power
GOOD LUCK & try not to break anything

I <3 my MT ET Street DR's....
Consistent low 1.7x 60' times don't lie... And I think I can do better.
Heat 'em up till I see smoke in the side view mirror, stage and leave at 2k rpm.

Got a 2.034 60ft time and 13.11 107.45mph my mods are
Lid k&n ported tb coolant bypass hooker lt's ory and borla with Falken Azenis rear tires. Not too bad for not really any work done to it. I gotta get a tune next and work on my clutch it isnt liking the hard launches and shifting around 6000rpms. I'm dying to get into the 12's i think the tune will help a little
