Hey Guys,

I was just wondering. Do you have a rough estimate of how many tenths you can shave off using slicks? I ran my car on MT drag slicks and went 13.52 on a hot day. I probably should have gone 13.3X on a cooler day. It was my first time on slicks too, so I don't think it was too bad. My 60' was a 1.87.

I'm asking because I wanna take some practice runs on my street tires. How much slower can I expect to go? And, what should my 60' be on street rubber?

Theres really no way of telling that. It could go a few tenths slower or a few seconds slower depending on how you drive it and how much power your making. For example, my aod car only loses a tenth but that same st tire on john forces top fueler and he'd probably lose a tremendous amount of time if he could even get it down the track on it.

I know its apples to oranges but it depends on the power your making and how well you know your car to make it hook up.

It is impossible to say from one car to another, but as one example my et's dropped almost a full second and the 60's dropped a little over two tenths going from street tires to drag radials.

I'm running a Windsor stroker though, so it was frying the crap out of the street tires.
