I think the SVT's running slow was more lack of driving skills than track issues. Stoobie ran a best of 15.7 on a SE with svt intakes and exhaust, no tune running a bit rich. I beleive 156whp he made. Way to tear it up. His previous best at a local good track was 16.xx.

My times seemed a bit slow when compared to a local track, and I was hooking ok.

I couldn't disagree more.......

For the record i had a 15.1 second SE with the same HP as stoobie. I could only put down 15.4's at this track in my SVT with 20 more horse....i'ld be easily be in the 14's at home(find out soon)...it's mostly the track, not the driver.

The best I had was 16.02.

I couldn't find a good RPM to launch at. Above 3000 and lots of wheel hop. Even got wheel hop in the burnout box. Below 3000 and it would bog of the line. Once I got out of 1st I was fine.

Yup, the best I could do was a 15.8x and I've already ran better then that before x amount of mods. BTW, I dyno'd at 176hp/ 15x tq

No offense, but anything short of RWD + Slicks was just plain stupid at that track. There was a 98 Cobra running 14.6's, C5 Z06 running 13.0's, and you can imagine what all of us FWD + street tire cars were running.

For reference, the only time I have traction issues is at ~5000 rpms in 1st gear on the street, and that's with my 60 treadware tires. These things are just plain sticky. At the track, I was losing traction all the way through 2nd gear, and that's with a measily ~206fwhp. And you can't forget that big speed bump looking thing just before the 1/8th mile, and the fact that the track is uphill. The track used to run the opposite direction until a car ended up in the street.

All in all, it was still fun to actually have a dragstrip event, and to get that many Contours out to the track.

Dunlop Super Sport Race. Dig your finger into a #2 pencil eraser. That's pretty much what these tires feel like. I pulled a 2.13 60' time with my old Falken tires, and was hoping to shoot for a 2.09 or better 60' time with these tires. That track made it impossible, so Jim and myself will be heading to Muncie sometime in the somewhat near future, to run some decent times.
