Tried out nitto 555rs 305/35 r20. Left at 1700 rpm spun 5 feet with no burnout and my times on performance pages were
0 to 60 3.8 sec
1/8 mile 7.97 at 90 mph
1/4 mile 12.3 at 111mph
I think that's pretty impressive for a bone stock naturally asperated car at 4,105 pounds. I think with a good 60 ft I can get in the 11s on a track

Drag radials make an enormous difference on these cars at the track and is a mod that is well worth the money if you are going to do much racing. As for 11 second time slips there are quite a few guy's hitting the 11's with the right weather and track conditions. Keep us posted on how you do at the track

I pulled a 3.6 0-60 in my 17 A8 SCAT with those MT ET street Rs installed. Same, no burnout just bolted them on and tested. 30+ psi too in them. I cant wait to get to the track.

Well I went to track and ran the same time with 1 mph lower. My 60 ft was 1.9 and I think if I can get a 1.6 that will get me a 11.8. plus my track is 2 tenths slower because of slight grade at the end of it.

I just got some Drag radials. Are you launching with the car in Sport Mode, traction control on, manual shifting, or what are you doing when using the DR’s?

You will hit 11's, just a matter of time. Drag radials make a huge difference.

Best 0-60 I could do on the street on street tires was 4.4. With 20" drag radials on the street I can do 3.8-3.9. At the track I did 3.6-3.7. With 17" drag radials on the street I can do 3.6 and at the track I've hit 3.3 once, but usually 3.4-3.5.

thanks. I was watching your videos on YouTube. Nice runs. Do you use track.mode or sport mode?

Thanks!

Track mode is best. I did a back to back test a while back on the street with 20" drag radials. Ran 4.0 in sport mode, then 3.9 in track mode, 4.0 in sport mode, and 3.9 in track mode, all on the same section of road within about 10 minutes or so. It's about a tenth faster than sport mode.

Pull your air filter when you get to the track next time. Also, if still running the stock 20" wheels up front, air up your front tires to 45psi.

My 20" drag radials seemed to like 19-21psi best at the track and I run them at 25-26psi on the street. The 17" ET Street R's seem to like 19-22psi. Lower psi never helped me like conventional wisdom would have you think.

If you're on the stock tune still, you can still add a little VP MS109 to the tank. Add 2 gallons or so to 1/4 or 1/3 tank of 93 pump gas. It will raise the octane to 95 or so and lean out your A/F ratio a little as it is 9.5% oxygenated (pump gas is 3.7% oxygenated). It will eliminate any knock you might be getting and lean out the rich A/F on the stock tune to help pick up some power.

wow thank for the tips. My car has forced induction from the hood not sure if taking off filter would help but I'll try. I'll try the gas also thanks
