8.7 in 1/8 w/Drag radials, what else is everyone doing??

Hey fellas,

Went to the track on fiday night test n tune at the immokale race track, but it is only 1/8 of a mile, so you can expect to see outlaw running 6 sec, boosted s2k's n vettes doing 7 sec runs w/slicks.....me, I ran a 8.7 sec w/drag radials tires, 230/60 r25.
I am now looking for 24in slicks to fit to my spare rims and my times should be flat 8's to 7's!!!

Here is the slip info:

REACTION: 1.00------could get better with practice..
60 ft: 2.1229----still spinning tires even with a good burnout
330 ft: 5.8309----
1/8 : 8.7949----how can i convert that to 1/4 times?

What is everyone else doing at the 1/8?? I know I need to get to a quarter mile cuz the eight is a reaction game, you have more time n space to develop the full potential of the car in a 1/4. What do you guys think? what are you guys doing?

Yeah i already searched n came up empty...
Thns
Rich

What was your boost level? I would expect mid to low 8's with 400whp..........even on drag radials. On slicks, you should be in the high 7's.

I was round 17-18lbs, i wasnt running the full 21lbs of boost, i kept spinning nn temps got too high.
I dropped em to 10lbs and still no good.....ok, ok this is the first time i have taken her to the track since i gotta er back, so i know i need to practice. but i was watching srt's doing 7.6 secs but these guys are always at the track.
Last time i drove her was over a year ago with 240hp and i did flat 9's. So i pretty much know i can do better after time...I hope lol

With some more practice and some slicks, you should be able to get in the 7's.

I ran a 8.65 in the 1/8 at 5000 ft above sea level with my powerworks kit at a peak of 12 lbs of boost. It ended up being a 13.405 @ 104.
