    video of my car going 0-60 in no more than 7.5 seconds

    2/32nd of tread left on the tires.. on a winter graveled road with a low rpm launch to keep wheel spin down..

    still has around 2 seconds of wheel spin in second gear.

    Updated: Added clip from me and the wife going to work tonight.. modified intake (Pulled the airbox and repalced with cheapy conical filter)

    Link is above

    Gotcha.. You can hear the wheel spin and see it though. I had to jerk the wheel to the left to correct.. Don't make me send my cat after you..

    I dunno.. I just got the camera, once it warms up and I get some new tires I will get another video.

    Anyone have recommendations for some decent tires.. Looking for summer only

    I don't want slicks.. something like parada spec 2s or something like that

    Most of the time I won't be exceeding 75 or so..

    I think I have stock tires right now.. hehe

    Paradas are the best tire you've ever driven on...

    .. If you're still buying retail tires at tire chains.

    At our level, we buy tires that are only available one at a time through special international chains, and I don't know about you - but I had to find an Icelander to help me order my old Gislaveds.

    Parada's, Proxie's, and pretty much any tire you can get at pep boyz are over-priced and over-rated.

    Start buying Azenis.

    I have actually never purchased any high quality tire. Someone just suggested the paradas to me.. But it looks like I will probably go with Azenis.

    It's the thinking man's tire.

    The Paradas I've liked - but I've also only driven then in 16". Not too many quality tires come in that large of a size.
