    Nothing too crazy, but ran a PB with a Trinity TVS. Left lane 11.69 @ 122.85 MPH - DA of 3983.

    Engine mods are Trinity 13/14TVS, 13/14 GT500 injectors, JLT 123, VMP tune, VMP heat exchanger and coolant tank.

    Stock manifolds, x pipe, upper and lower pulleys and throttle body.

    I drive 300 miles round trip to the track. So the street and strip setup are the same except for adjusting the D Specs and tire pressures in the 305/45/17 ET / SS tires.

    Nice. Just keep working on that 60' and watch the ET's drop. That DA sucks too.

    I’ve only ever drag raced on 20” wheels on 555R (305/35/20) or 05R (315/35/20) so I’m trying to learn on these 305/45/17 MT ET SS - i’d love to try a slick but the drive kinda prevents that. I think a 1.70 60’ is possible. I’ve only made 8 passes on the 17’s and only 4 with the new power.

    1.7s are definitely possible. Just air them down enough to have the whole contact patch of the tire being used. You could always get a spare set of back wheels with slicks mounted and swap at the track. I've done plenty of tire swaps at the track. Trash bag to cover each wheel/tire and let them ride in the back seat or one in the trunk and one in the back seat.
    Anyway, solid run for the DA and 60'.
    Drag radials get tricky with the torque and a stick. Try 3500rpm quick slip on launch and if it bogs, try 4k rpm and a quick slip. Basically feel the track out and find the sweet spot. Practice, practice, and more practice. It's an addiction :)

    Nice time, car looks clean too!

    also very cool that you drive it to and from the track, that's what its all about! Get as much seat time in as you can. Personally, I try to avoid using the trailer as much as possible.
