May go to the track next weekend

May try taking the car to the track next week end, does anyone think it can go 13.00? The car is a STOCK '91 coupe that has plastic race seats, no AC, no P/S, and the battery has been moved to the back. Hoping it weighs @3000 or under. The car is a 5spd. now and has 28x11.5x15 ET streets and will have 4.10's in it by tommorrow afternoon. I can drive pretty good but have minimal seat time in this car. I would like to see just how fast i can go with a stock motor before i start putting the nitrous or windsor in it. The car also has lakewood 90/10 and 50/50 on it as well, but the rest of the suspension is stock.

If its a "bone stock" motor it can be done but i'm going to say with the heat and those TALL tires it'll be a chore even with the 4.10's...........try a 26in. tire, preferablly a slick, shortie belt, ice the crap out of it and you'll also have to BEAT the snot out of it and you can do it..........i've been proven wrong many times though

Good luck and have fun!

Thanks! I'm not gonna be dissapointed if it don't go 00's, I'll be happy with some 60's-70's. I wish i would have bought 26's instead of 28's as i tend to think your right about them holding me back. We'll see and i'll let everyone know how it go's.
