    I had clutch issues with the drag radials 2 weeks ago which led to a [email protected] (clutch literally went up in smoke, and the pedal stayed on the floor)

    Went back last night on the normal everyday street tires, 1/2 tank of gas, couple hoodies in the back, 4.10s, March Pullies, BBK O/R X, MAC Catback, K&N filter and got [email protected]

    Slip goes like this

    r/t- .479
    60'- 1.962
    330'- 5.493
    1/8 - 8.387
    MPH - 85.08
    1000'- 10.887
    1/4- 12.988
    MPH- 107.44

    I also got a couple [email protected] runs..But im really excited as of right now.. Not bad for a screwed up clutch and tons of extra weight and gas. Not to mention worn out 275/40 Falken street tires.

    Who says 4.10s+pullies cant get you 12s?? Im gonna get a new clutch sometime soon and throw the DRs on and shoot for 12.70

    /yay :o

    Oh,

    My best previous times were [email protected] and thats on a 235/60/15 MT ET Street...which usually net me 1.8s no problem. My old setup was 3.73s instead of 4.10s and no underdrives. Only thing I switched was to 4.10s, pullies, upper/lower control arms, and NO DR.

    Im super excited about my times, I knew the car had it in there. And as far as improving my 60, I know I can do that with the tire, but I cant with this clutch thats in there. So I felt 1.9s were pretty damn good.

    My car is a 98, the motor has 12k miles on it (Ford reman'd longblock) stock T45, 4.10s, mid pipe, catback, filter. I am gettin a JLT cai and custom SCT tune within the next few months.. so I'll have a bit more power to play with.

    Get a new clutch and some tire, you won't be disappointed. My 2000 GT went 12.80 @ 103 w/ 1.74 60' with intake, plenum, throttle body, Spec Stage II Clutch, 3.73s, tune, cat-back and some ET Drags.

    I'd invest in some UCA's and definitely some FLSFC's

    Yea I could give 2 shits about my RT...:fawk:

    I have UPR upper/lower control arms...guess I forgot to mention that.

    I know the 60' can be way better, but not on these tires or clutch ;)

    I have a set of tires on wheels, just need a new clutch and I'll be in business. The car has the power (108mph) I just need to get out of the hole better.

    My fox got totaled, these runs were in my 98 Cobra

    :rofl: I once got a bad RT and someone said that if I get that down, my ET would go way down. So to prove them wrong I got a similar RT as whats in the slip above, and got the same exact ET.

    The people in the stands were a little pissed, and so was the guy I proved wrong lol
