Your spot you need to work on is your launch. Your 60' times are bad. Thats where youre loosing your time is in the beginning.

I don't think the 20psi in street tires is helping you. Low pressure is more for a drag radial designed to operate like that. Try upping it back up to about 30.

^^ agreed. I tell people this but no one ever listens. DO NOT lower the psi in street tires.

Yeah, that's dangerous. I've seen plenty of Honda guy up here at GLD just peel their tires right off the wheel and nearly put themselves into the wall or the other lane.

You should PM TParker, he has a ZX3 not an SVT but, I have seen him run mid to low 13's. He has everything done and I mean everything. Coilovers,race headers, FS stealth exhause kit, radical street cam set up, cam gears, chip, drag radials, car at 2250 lbs with him in it. You might have a lot of work still to hit 13's, not trying to discourage you, I've read your mod list and I know his is all I'm saying.

I think a very high 13 is possible with the right conditions especially with my trap speed being 94mph im baseing my rash opinion on the fact my subaru wrx ran a 14.11 at the same 94.54mph sooo...thats why I think with a good set of slicks and a cooler air charge i may be in and if it matters my r/t is the same between the two.


BUT WHY SAY IT WHEN I CAN JUST GO DO IT & get back with you guys later

not really.

I hit 13's with a PW kit on a regular ZX3. Get some drag radials (or slicks) and work on your launch.

they say for every tenth you cut off your 60ft you get 2-3 tenths in the 1/4 time

IONO...i think with your set up now you should be able to do low 14's....your gonna need some good tuning and tires for 13's though.
