80+ mph is always a respectable trap no matter what for a street car.

You are were I really want to be next summer. One step at a time. I run mid 9's now, trapping at a consistant 77mph. My tires approaching 8 years old and being hard as concrete, my best 60fts are like 2.3/2.4. Even when the launch feels perfect. I am going to try again at the end of september with some newer tires. We'll see.

try it again with an ms at 12psi, that will get you there. it'll be a lot more fun than better tires too.

Rear end, clutch, and some suspension first. These will get done this winter. Thankfully, I get my big garage for one more storage season. With better grip, I will definitely need more power so I can keep doing power slides.
