Nitto 555's yeah i know my 60 needs to be better i was just rolling off idle i think a 1500 rpm with a medium clutch release will get me sub 60'. I was still spinning through 1st and i didn't give it 100% throttle going into 2nd so i wouldn't spin either but i still did a little.

yea, your giving up a ton not having a good tire, still good times for street tires and easy launch, would eat most lt1s going at it all out lol

i was pretty happy with my trap. i saw some ls1's running mid to high 12's with a lower trap speed than me. I just need more seat time.

Trap speed will go down as 60ft and and ET go down. you will have less time essentially to gain speed. weird but i lost probably 1-2mph but gain .5 ET and .2~ 60ft respectively.

26x11.5x17 et street bias ply. A 26x9.5x16 quick time pro would be better. I'd put money on that car trapping atleast 106mph. High 12s with 1.8x 60s

"bias ply" is a type of tire construction, it is more forgiving than a radial when it comes to stick car racing.

that link is to the bias ply et streets, right choice. I recommend getting a 26x10.5x16 et street or a 26x9.5x16 Hoosier quick time pro dot. The hoosiers are stiffer and drive much nicer on the street but they have softer tread. The mickeys will last longer. Im not a huge fan of the et streets due to how soft they are, even at 30psi they sway on the street alot more than the hoosiers do. Ive street driven both, QTPs drive much better. My stiff wall ET drags drive nicer than both.

I think you and mike will be surprised to see his mph stay the same or increase.
