my car was # 722, very happy with the trap speed but a little disappointed with the ET since I was hoping to break into 12s with street tires.

for those who don't know about my car

Nice times, you need to go to St.Thomas and you'll get a better 60 foot.

I ran a 13.2 as well at 112MPH at cayuga, I find Cayuga to be pretty bad for the first gear, i can't seem to hook up at all. Even with my new PS2's

Now at st thomas, i was able to hook up my first, best 60 foot I had was 2.0 but I spin through the entire second gear, I don't know if that part of the track was wet that day as it was my first time there.

If you live in toronto its farther. St Tomas is near London.

I live in mississauga and it takes me a full extra hour to get to st.thomas, and I personally find cayoga's track to be better condition then st.thomas.

London is pretty damn far, took us forever to get there but the nice thing was that I was able to do a TONE of runs, they go pretty fast and it was a Street legal Friday night so no drag cars around.

Condition wise, I find both tracks to be pretty good, cayuga may be a little more modern then st. thomas but I'm pretty sure St. Thomas is a faster track.

You could pull a 12 with some practice, you could get the 60' under 2 seconds and make up for it there.

It might happen with slicks or better street tires not with cheapy tires I'm running now.

I dunno man, I think you can do it. If my brother can cut 2.0 flat 60' times in a turbo ford festiva on a all season, i'm sure you can do it in a e30.

I think I can cut to 2.0 60' too, just need some more practice runs to find the sweet spot for launching the car.
