Still running stock Conti's and I cannot wait till all the thread is gone so I can get some new decent tires. Give me time, I'm working hard on wearing them tires down, hubby want let me get new ones till all the thread is gone on the Conti's. Good compromise I think, hehehehe

I've not had the pleasure to see or race any other 2.3's, I would love too, I think it would be a great run for me esp against a modded PZEV. I love a challenge, esp at the dragway.

Stock I ran 9.9 at 69 so looks like you might neeed to work on your launches a bit, but my 69 mph was on a cool day so I am sure better conditions you would have trapped higher than 71.

My launches are pretty good, as I said before I've raced against and seen other SVTF owners run and my times have always been better, much better. Again I have more mods than those I've raced and seen race. Its very upsetting but I feel conditions are a large factor down here on the dragways. Plus I need drag radials, very bad.

I see what your saying, for me it was like the more mods I did, the worst 60' times I would get. I need slicks j/k

Dont get me wrong here, I have seen improvement on my times overall with the install of mods. Well that is just what is expected, but Dave I agree with you my 60 ft times have not improved if anything they got a little worse with each new install. With the install of the diff I was hoping to see an improvement, unfort I did not. Yes I need drag radials very, very, very bad. And please people by all means give pointers on how to improve my runs, I welcome all advice.

Haha yes props to everyone for not turning this thread into a debate. I know how heated things can get between some of the SVTF and PZEV owners. I would like to know what some of you PZEV owners have got number wise at the dragway if you dont mind?
