Default Went to the drag strip...

Pretty disappointed in the results, I've got a whole list of ricer excuses though, "My car isn't running right, my clutch was slipping, it was 94 degrees and really humid, I only made 3 passes before it started raining..." etc.

Run 1:
'60: 1.91
1/8: 8.48 @ 83.81
1/4: 13.18 @ 104.87

Run 2:
'60: 2.23
1/8: 8.85 @ 81.74
1/4: 13.53 @ 105.02

Run 3:
'60: 2.09
1/8: 8.49 @ 83.54
1/4: 13.10 @ 104.99

Here's a vid of the first run:

If you had lost, you would have NEVER lived it down.

Wasn't far behind. I bet it ran a ~17-18 second pass. Not bad for a monkey turd

They're sticky all the time. I've been really happy with them. Not many miles on them and not all that much thread left though. I've always been bad on tires though

Ricer excuses and 13.10? Dude, you're the man for that. I make ricer excuses like, "my clutch slipped in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear, and I have a shitty tune, and my 60' sucked." Guess what, I ran a 14.40. You win by more car lengths that I wanna hear you brag about. Nice job. What clutch are you running, btw?
