I'd say your predictions are pretty close to right on. Probably 7-9 tenths from the juice...and 2-3 tenths from the drag radials. Drag radials IMO work much better on the street, than at the track. Good luck and let us know what ya turn.

Yeah, I'd say somewhere in the range of 12.8 - 13.1 range would be doable. '99Z...meaning Z28? Is it all stock? Who's the better driver? You, or him? You never know. You may shock yourself and find out that you can somewhat hang with him even without the nitrous. I know he has more power than you...but if he's on street radials...and you're on the drag radials, you'll probably jump him by a couple car lengths off the line. You should smoke him easily on the nitrous though.

Now judging by your 1/4 mile time in your sig. With you trapping 98 MPH if you have a good set of DR's can launch like a MOFO you should be able to get in the high 13's, I'd be guessing 13.6 at best.

I'm not sure how well the Nittos really hook at the track, I use MT DR's and cut 1.7 short times no prob launching at 4000 RPM.

So with the juice you should be able to get into the mid to high 12's with a good launch.

Best of luck.

Aren't your MT drag radials much more sticky than sdd228's Nittos? The one time that I ran my fairly worn BFG drag radials at the track I could only launch at about 3,000-3,500 rpms. The best 60' I could muster was a 1.9 I think.
Slicks are the way to go though...obviously. I love those 6,000rpm launches!!

Yeah my MT's hook like a full slick. Amazing tires if you ask me, I won't run anything else since I started using them.

I've used both the MT's and BFG DR's and like you had a 1.9 60ft with the BFG's was the best I could get aswell. Switched to my MT's and raised the launch no tire spin just hooks and cut 1.7's.

Like I said I've never run the Nittos so don't know how well they work. But if you really want your ET's to be at their quickest don't play around with mediocre tires, get a good set and run the hell out of them.

I dont' see any of the fast DR equipped cars running NMRA or FFW or anything on Nittos. Just my opinion.

Is the Z a auto or a six speed? By full exhaust do you mean headers if so long tubes?

You could run a high 12 with a good preped track. I didn't have much luck on 245 nittos on my 91 coupe, the little bit I did have involved heating the crap out of the nittos.


Good luck.
