    Newbie @ the track 1/8

    ok so me and a co-work go to the track. my first time!!
    Me-stock 00 m6 Z
    Him-89 s-10 blazer 93 LT1 alittle head work moser 12 w/4.11

    1- 8.8 to a 8.6 blazer my reaction .331 horrible!!!

    2-8.7 to a 8.6 blazer my reaction .226 better but still can't get it to hook.
    hes putting 2 cars on me by 1/2 but i get one back on the big end

    3- 8.7 to a 8.7 me-he was sleeping .170 to a .49

    4,5 couldn't get it to hook. so again he killed me out of the hole and i would pull him in at the end.

    60' time my best was a 2.115 he was pulling a 1.98-1.86

    so what do i need to hook i know i need tires but is Mickey T et streets radials to much or should i go w/ Bfg's drag radials or nitto 555?

    and how bad are these times or is it average for a stock car?

    I think your times are pretty decent. My '99Z A4 ran a 9.0 stock. now with a lid and cutout ran a 8.70@83.90. What's your MPH??

    reaction time do not mean squat unless you are bracket racing. tell us 60' instead.
    so in this format:

    60', 1/8th ET, trap speed.

    Def go with M.T Street radials, They hook awesome, I broke my rear end in my 240 on the line, Sometimes they hook a little too good :}

    Reaction time means alot whether its bracket racing or heads up! The first one to the finish line wins, If your sleeping your loosing.

    Good reactions need to be between .000+ to .045, Thats a good racers average. Only practice will help.

    thats what i'm affriad of. i want to get a better 60' but don't need to kill the rear before i got the cash to replace it.

    i'm going to get tires and rims but for now i'll just practice at the track for a better reaction time.

    Whats some good places to find drag rims? i don't like the welds or the mickey t's....any help?
    and what size and offset do i need to keep from doing any fender work?
    thanks brandon
