You going to laugh at the tires I have I got them from discount tire they are Bravuris Barum or Barum Bravuris I don't know which is the brand name or model of tire. It has a web site on them
I'm on my second set they werent too bad the first time around so i bought some more can't beat the price I asked discount tire what there cheapest tire was and these were'nt the cheapest they were secnond in line so I got them. on there adevertisement rack in the showroom they say they are not the bottom of the rung but middle grade has tires go. they are not the best ether so don't think that i'm saying I have the best but I do like them they don't look like a normal tire I like the tread pattern though they do squel a little too much for my taste when worn down like they are right now the wear bands are'nt showing yet but they are getting close to them.

|sleepyboy||Yeah my friends were telling me had had massive amounts of wheel spin. I did have a 2.2-- somthing 60' but that was just once and the time was'nt good.|

|netdrgoon||You could be mid 15s easily if you could get that 60ft to a 2.1. Maybe remove a little ballast and work on keeping the wheelspin away and it would help.|

I had alot of practice. I would launch at 4500 rpm the first time to the track. This time I launched at 4000 rpm to 3800 rpm and I lowered the tires down to about 25 psi and then 20 psi whiched helped out. The first run I made was nothing but wheel spin I did'nt even move much off the line. Just practice your launch try slipping the clutch more maybe. It helped alot for me. So far the CF clutch has held up wonderfully. Though I wish I had enough money to have had a lighter flywheel when replacing all that stuff. ( I put the clutch in when swapping the motors out). But its definatly your 60' time could be better. MY best was 2.2-- somthin though that run was one of the slower though I don't know why.
more post please let me know what ya'll think and if any way to make it better?
also I don't have a cat I have the 4-2-1 OBX headers. That might make for a tenth or two.

|focusfreak03||how come you are putting up those numbers with pretty much the same mods as me and i can't maybe it has something to do with the elevation and the fact that my acceleration under 3500 sucks balls. does anybody know how i can find out the elevation where i run?|
