    I'd say you are right on par then.

    My 02 SS A4 with 3.23's with only headers and a tune ran 13.30's at 104-105 mph when the DA was floating around 3,000 ft. It would only cut 2.1 60 foot times on stock rubber, on a well prepared track, I could floor it and go without so much as a squeak. It had the stock converter at the time as well.
    It weighs 3,820 lbs. with me in it.

    So your car with same mods is just about identical to mine and DA's are close enough.
    I later installed a 3400 converter and changed nothing else,,,,and the car dipped into the 12's still on the stock rubber, and went a 1.90 60 foot but I had to feather the car out rather than stabbing it like before.

    Seems about right to me Shady with that 60' time and your mods. Need to get the 60' down with some DR's....and a stall would probably bring you into the 12.6-12.7 range

    Did you have a baseline for running the car without your suspension mods or no?

    well last year before my konis and stranos, and my panhard bar (i know phb doesnt do shit in this case) and on stock 16s and A/S rubbers i would cut a 2.1 60' and get out of it after the 1-2shift and still get 13.6-8

    so now with DRs and such i only get a 13.3

    i wonder if i need to mess with my koni's settings a little more , and maybe look into getting a set of drag rims/ instead of using my TTMs

    Just tryin' to help

    I was going to do drag radials on mine before the converter, but the track was so well prepped I didn't need them. No matter how hard I tried with the stock converter, I just floored it and it would go,,,consistently 2.10 60 foot times. I wouldn't have done any better with drag radials,,,well,,,,because I didn't have an issue with traction.

    Once the converter was in,,,,it was a different story though.

    Your car ins't a slug by any means shady. A converter picked my car up big time,,,even on stock rubber I managed a 12.76 at 107 mph. I need drag radials now,,,as my 60 foot was a very easy 1.90 driving like an egg was under the pedal. I could cut that to 1.70's easy with tires, and probably dip it into the 12.50's or better in some good air.

    My best 60' on Nitto 555r's was 1.906. With that time I ran 13.109 at 107MPH. I'm a little different though being a M6 with 4.11 gearing.

    If you have adjustable shocks you are ahead of the game. shock settings are huge.
    I didn't catch what size your TTM's are but when you get up into these 17's or more,,,,they are a bit heavy. I know the factory 17 inch 10 spokes I have are pigs.

    I was told to run mine at even lower pressure my next trip out. I was around 18PSI.

    I run as low as 14 psi on mine (different car with a 275-60/15)

    It's even more difficult to make these drag radials work on 17" or larger wheels,,,,just not alot of sidewall to work with.

    That's about what i was told. My thinking was for me to start at around 18 and work my way down and just see where I get the best 60' time.

    Shady...with an A4 you really need a stall to get your 60' times down. Like everyone in the thread mentioned....the 60' times is what's killin ya. Also with your car lowered and heavier than stock wheels...well that doesn't help matters either. I'm in that same boat on that deal.

    My car has a 3200 multi-disc converter, 12 bolt w/3.73 gears and 10.5 wide Mickey's ET streets on my stock 16" rims. 60' times are about 1.7...and I launch at about 2k rpm...depending on track prep and breaking loose or not.
