So me and my buddy who has a 03 GT with BBK LT headers, JLT CAI, and upper plenum, 245/45r17 Nitto DR's went down to our local dragstrip yesterday and had a blast. We ran dead even with a winning margin of .0133. My best run is as follows

Reaction - .6361
60ft - 2.24
330ft - 6.12
1/8 ET - 9.16
1/8 MPH - 81.68

1/4 ET - 13.88
1/4 MPH - 105.24

Considering this was my first time ever racing at a drag strip i feel i did pretty good. I had massive traction issues with my 235's. I would try and feather and go and they still spun like crazy. So im going to be purchasing a set of 17" rims for the back with 275/40 Nitto DR's that i can change over at the track..that and some lower and upper control arms...and more practice ill be down in the high 12's my goal with my mods is 12.8xx with more practice and stickier tires i think that is possible.
