    Busted off a 12.8 at 109 last night at the track w some crappy H rated Ventus tires.But the 60 ft was kinda good at a 2.08.In second gear I had alot of spin and finally hooked up when I hit third.The temp outside was 90 degrees.This was w/ full interior and some extra junk laying around in my car.On 16" rota slips and H rated Hancook Ventus 215/40/16.I was happy to hit a twelve.Also the boost was at a mere 10lbs.

    Sounds awesome, especially on 16" wheels and street tires. VERY nice time for the boost level!

    What all suspension mods you have to get the beast to hook up like that? I know about the ITR stuff... Traction bars or anything?

    Thanks bro...


    The craziest thing is that there was a 10sec awd 1st gen DSM in the other lane.For some wild reason his side of the lights didnt come down only mine did.Man I was worried about running him.I think that has alot to do w/the good time I ran.
