1/8th miles times?

i was running an 1/8th mile track not too far from where i live and with the crappy tires i have the best i could manage was a 9.99.
just wondering what some other people have seen in the 1/8th so far. i'm going to get some bfg drag radials soon and maybe an lsd to help it hook up.

Running a 9.9 is like running 15.5 in the 1/4. Thats decent IMO you have a ZX3 not an SVT? Thats in SVTF territory

I've know I've run slightly faster 1/8ths, but on my best 1/4 mile run (15.35) my 1/8th mile portion was 9.90 @ 71.84mph, with a 2.26 60' time.

Sounds like my non SVT Brothers are nipping at my heels!
