- 1999 WS6 Convertable Auto
Made the semi finals in my lane and red lighted. Best sand bag time after the air cooled down was 13.71@87MPH. Coasted half the track. Hey if they're going to make me run a 13.5 as a convertable, what do you expect.
I'm a little disapointed in the tires. I thought those tires would just kill, but they do not stick for me. They don't prep the track on Fun drags, but I still thought it should pull 1.8s regardless. It must be driver error but I don't know what else to try.
So comparing 3.73s in 115 heat against 2.73 in 70 degrees for me:
With the same sixty foot time I dropped 2 tenths and gained 2 MPH.
In 70 degrees with better traction, it would probably be a whole half second faster. So it was a huge improvement. The trick is figuring out how to get all that new tire torque to the pavement.
I'm going to save up for LS edit software and fix the rev limit and shifting issues.

Maybe some suspension mods would help you dip into the 12's.
