What tires are you running and how to do manage your launches? I'm still far from your 9.90 1/8 time, something tells me I was getting horrible 60 fts tonight and that my tires are a big handicap. My 1/8 time translates in high 15's generally, I would be really surprised not to be able to get at least mid 15's, also considering that my 1/8 trap speed seems rather fast (even if it can be off by some margin, don't know the precision of their measuring system). The fact that I was catching on that b16a2 swapped Civic also tells me that my car is certainly not running too bad.

If you break into 14's stock without slicks you're one hell of a driver.
