Re: just got my slicks question about 60ft. (roccoturbo)

Hey how's it going?
I was wondering when you were going to throw some slicks on that beast!
You are in a position that I was in last year. Going from street tires with awful 60' times and a high mph, to running slicks.
I am assuming you have upgraded your diff/clutch to accomodate the slicks.
I am guessing that this summer you will be running high 12's.
Your MPH will drop by a 2 - 3mph, and your 60' times should drop to 1.8's.
Keep us posted, and maybe I'll see you at Sanair (spelling?), in the summer.

I haven't competed in any CSCS or other organized compact racing events. Just bracket racing with the muscle cars on Sundays, at the local track.
It would be good to see you out at the events, though. I plan on attending more of the import events.
