Your friend needs practice, lots of it. I was able to get it down to a 14.1 stock but I was spinning and getting some bad wheel hop. There are some guys that have gotten 13.7's and high 13's stock. I have no idea how, maybe the weather was perfect and they were running no tire pressure. Maybe they had a 50mph wind coming from the back too.Originally posted by josnroh
Were you able to hook up at the drags with your stock tires? A buddy of mine did nothing but hop and spin in first and second and didn't get out of the 16 sec ET area.
The tires are only 205's. They look like pizza cutters theyre so thin. Couple that with 250ft-lbs of torque at the wheels and it makes it hard to hook.
Hardened motor mounts make a big difference. I get no wheel spin now. Best time to date is a 13.2 but that was with some borrowed slicks. I need to practice with the slicks because I wasnt getting them hot enough. Not used to doing burnouts yet!
It's funny how people can actually have worthwhile discussions over here in this part of the forum. Ya'll should go over to srt-forums and go look at the war stories. It's a joke. More trolls over there than anything.
