haha stav.. interesting lil debate here... i got my time on my old 19's... lol.. true street.. on NANKANG"S... :lol: can i borrow your tyr'es stav for a crack at that 13? :lol: :wink:

I would destroy your tyres with my wagon.I would not get traction.This means I have more torque than you or more dead weight to get off the line.

With slicks my 60 footer would be 1.8 not 2.068.

Whatever is said the wagon did it..

AAhhh thats why.My car weighs 1720 kgs!! If you want to borrow my et streets you are welcome but please give me little notice.
Also its the first time out with a working lsd ..so maybe why the car had no traction issues for the first time ever!! Maybe would have been fine on street tyres?

at the end of the day they are a radial dot tyre, so there is no argument, they are a street tyre! they are available for anyone to buy and are 100% street legal, i hate it when people say they run "real street tyres", guess what et street's are "real street tyres".

the hankooks that are dot approved are actually rags (crossply) and therefore they are a slick with grooves, and then yes i would agree they are not really in the same class, but the et's are still a radial steel belted tyre just with a softer compond rubber.

Joe.You have alot to offer to the ford performance sector mate and whats better is your honesty and good manner.

The fact is that I had a great bunch of mechanical parts but the tune was blatantly wrong..I was banging my head against the wall from frustration of paying so much for tuning until our converstaion.The most expensive part was letting it be tuned. The golden words from you were to get an interceptor and do it myself. Within a fortnight I went in and bought a piggyback ecu and installed it myself as I am a car phone/audio installer.It took 25 minutes to do. The tuning however was a very different kettle of fish.It took a massive amount of care and patience before I started to feel the results.But they did come. Admittedly my car was piniging down the track on my second run so it needs more work.

The track was very hot ,the car was pinging.A flat 14.3 followed by a 14.317 was telling me stories I wanted to hear. 97 mph is telling me the car is around 155 to 165 real killowatts. My next mod will be to wait for some cooler weather and take it easy with the car until it runs. I dont know what my et will be in 9 degree temperatures as opposed to 25 degree and 40 track temps the other night.You would think it has to go a little faster dont you think? the only time faster is 14.3 or 14.299!!

Thanks mate.Looks like I need about 10% more power to get into my goal..Hopefully 175 tp 192 rwkws... What et and mph should I be pulling with that power?

possibly wheel spin... lack of practice?? or track launch knowledge?? perhaps a missed gear change?? soooo many variables......

and stav... those figures would be mighty impressive.. who knows!.. could still drop down to 14.1 -14.2??

I reckon a 14.2 is on the cards mate.With 195 rwkws it should pull a 14..flat.But you don't know until you do it...

It was a hot night.Other au xr6's with xorst were running 16.8's!!! The guys car had no wheel spin at all. I said to him that I did think he should get it checked.

I saw oth i6 's pulling high 16's..it was hot!!!
