    Keep working on those time, 12's are not too far away. 60 ft times need a little work.

    you have the trap for it....just need to get that 60' down. Drag radials would help a lot.

    Thanks it almost trapped 107 earlier in the year.

    Yes DR's would help but then you don't qualify for the stock times list

    This things my DD and will remain pretty much stock,my 99TA is my drag toy.

    Getting sub 2's on 20's is no easy feat

    I need a seriously prepped track for that and my track just wants T&Ters money.

    BTW 10 passes out of 12 were a 2.0x 60ft.

    I tried loading the converter on 2 and got 2.2X

    Try launching a 6m to sub sec 60' times on stock tires. I ran mid 13's at 108 this year spinning and sliding all the way down the 1320. 60' times were 2.2's or worse. DR's are the way to go.

    Aren't you too old for the 20" wheel thing?

    Not only hurting your 60's, but the extra rotational mass doesn't help down track either.

    Just for giggles, I'd try swapping your TA tires on it (if they are stock sizes) and see if you can improve on anything. I'd even toss them on the scale while I was at it.

    Unfortunately they come stock,although I did buy some used Black Giovanna Dalar 20's one day after buying the car

    The 5th Gen SS will accept an 18" rim over the Brembo's

    Oh, I suppose you're talking about a newer 5th gen then?

    If it makes you feel any better, I'm too old for the big wheel stuff myself. I don't even like the 17's that are stock on my wifes 4th gen SS
