Bench racing comes from people who don't race or use mag times as their basis for the argument.
anyway, the Drag Radials should help you get a bit more traction, and I forgot you had the resonator delete too. That's good for what 8-10 HP and weight reduction of 20-25 lbs right?
That should help your times a bit.

Again, I'd pretty much rest assured LACR will have prepped the track better this Saturday than they did (or rather probably DIDN'T do) a couple Wednesdays ago.

See you there.
Same here! A few years ago I crashed a 520rwhp car @ 100mph at LACR on one of these Sunday races. Moral of the story: wait until a few slower cars dust the track off before you go balls to the wall.

I don't know what's the new helmet rule at LACR. Before if you were faster than a 13.99 you had to wear a helmet but lately I wasn't asked to wear one when doing high 13s.

On that 13.48 run my 60 ' time was 2.269, and sadly the 1/8th mile computer wasn't working that night in the left lane so I can't give you that.
My best 60 ft time that night at LACR was 2.255, but that run ended in a 13.50x, so I didn't do any better.

Traction really stinks at LACR and was REALLY bad that night.
Gotta get your 60' down. If you had Terry's 1.8x 60' time you would definetly be in the high twelves.

Been drag racing for years.
LACR is known as the "ice rink" you won't get traction there.
Irwindale (were Terry went) is an 1/8th mile track and it's got plenty of traction.
Well, not as good as ATCO where you live, but Irwindale is best for traction around here.
My 2.25 60 foot time was the best of the night between several 335i's and an E46 M3
