You guys with 8 and 9 second stick cars......care to share your gear/tire combo and suspension setup? Let's try this format:

ET and 60'
Tire and gear?
Key suspension components?


My car is a 93 coupe with a terminator swap and a 2.3 whipple. Makes 625-650 rwhp depending on ambient temp.

My bests yesterday were:
6.65 1/8, 1.53 sixty foot, 111.21 mph
3.55 gear, MT ET Drag- 26x10.5 stiff
Non adjustable UPR rear upper and lower control arms
Strange adj. front and rear shocks/struts- front full loose, rears on 4
Upr coilovers on front (200lb), GT rear springs cut

Looking for some advice to get this thing down in the 1.30s sixty foot

up to now i have run a 28x10.5 stiff wall mickey thompson

ET and 60' 9.86 and 1.33 are my bests
Gear? 3.77 first, 3.27 rear(no overdrive)
Key suspension components? All solid stuff, cage and subframes tied into the torque boxes. All solid bushings, under axle anti roll bar.

I am switching over to a 26" stiff wall tire this year, i think it will do better with my current starting line ratio than the 28" tire. SSSstang, not sure if he is on here, went 1.29 sixty foot the first time out with a similar engine combination to mine so i think the 26 will work just fine. The coyote stock and pure street guys have also been very successful on that tire.
