the slowgt.com et calculator is saying a 12.55 is the quickest you can go with a 108mph trap speed. I have run as quick as 12.30s with a 108mph trap speed with 60' times in the low 1.6 area.

12.300,1.60 60' on hoosier 26x10's.at the time, i thought that was probably as quick as i could go.but,i think i could have gone quicker on a better track because a few weeks later,i went 12.43 on 295/35r18 bfg's.if i had my slicks on that week,maybe 12.20's?12.1x's?

I was running 26x10.5 M/T ET streets, but I had only got 1 test run before elims. I launched at too low rpm, so I had to go with that all day. Launched it, it fell on it's face (around 1.8 60'), and managed to make it to the semis. Ran between 12.60 and 12.67 all day. Every run was between 108mph to 110mph. It was the last time out last year, hopefully be back out soon.

I have been 12.53 @ mid 107 mph with mine. 18s out front, 17s out back, 26x10.5 ET Streets with a 1.73 or so 60'.

I have been 12.25 in my brothers 86 GT with a mid to low 1.6 60' and 108 mph traps.

A well set up, 3000 fox with the right gearing, tires and driving could go low, low 12s at 108 mph. Average time would probably fall into the 12.5-12.8 range, good times would probably be 12.2-12.4.

I ran as quick as 12.12 @ 108mph. This was with a 1.74 60 foot time on tiny 215/60 15 BFG drag radials.

Then I ran as quick as 12.01 @ 109mph with a 1.69 60 footer on 235/60 MT drag radials. The bad thing is I haven't been able to best that 1.69 60 footer even though I have now run in the 11.4's!!:eek:

my turd went 12.97 @ 108.93 with a ####ty 2.0 60', on slicks, i know with a bigger convertor and a different gear it should go low 12s, it only 60' a 1.78 on a 125 shot and went 11.56

actually,you would probably go faster with a taller tire.you need all the sidewall you can get.i never even broke into the 12's on those tires when my car ran 108mph.

thanks...i've only made two passes with this set up and I'm mostly concentrating on the 60' time. one 60' was 2.0 107 mph and the other a 2.1 108 mph. gotta work on the shift points also. can the shift points effect mph also? if i'm shifting in the powerband is it possible for the mph to increase?
