I think the Azenis are awful for drag racing. I tried it a couple of years ago and had problems, it was either spin or hop no in between. my best 60 was 2.2. my best time was a 13.9 at 99mph, that was a 1.6L with a FMII at 12psi. I think the sidewall on the Azenis is too stiff.

Of course its too stiff, its practically an autoX tire. I consistantly run 2.0 60fts on them though, I think if I learned to slip the clutch a little more I could get it down to 1.9 or maby even 1.8 if I really hooked up and all the planets alligned just right. On the run I ended up breaking my diff on, it finally hooked up like I had allways wished it would.. Im going to try lower pressures next time, all the runs I have ever made on the Azenis were at 32 or 34psi. Going to try 26 or 28 next time. Next year I want to get some drag radials though, then i'll really start breaking ****...

You're obviously managing to do better with them than I could. Heck you did better with them than I did on my kumho's. I only made 2 passes , probaly could have mustered a 2.0 with a few more attempts but shoulda woulda coulda never accomplished anything. I tried lowering the pressures on the falkens and if I remember right it made it worse. just watch out for wheel hop.
I forgot to add congrats in my previous post that's a very good time.

Thanks man, this may sound stupid and I may be completely wrong, but I think the 60ft times may also have something to do with the turbo size (in addition to the azenis). I went with the T3/T04E 50t .48/.60 trying to have a turbo that was alittle laggy, yet not so bad that I was a dyno queen.. Of course I picked the size before I learned anything about compressor maps so it was just a guess pretty much lol, but I think my 60ft times have alot to do with the fact that it takes quite a few feet off the line before I hit boost, so by the time I recover traction from the initial launch, it starts hitting full boost. Please someone tell me if this is a stupid theory, because I may very well be just imagining this lol.

It was my first time back since I blew my Torsen so I kept ***** footing my launch.

Haha no, I ran a 13.3 that run, the 350 ran a 15.7. If you look closely you see that I get ahead of him then manage to stay out of the cameras view the whole race(blocked by the big *** truck), hence the shot of me first on the return road. Ill have to post up the second cam angle.
