Jim, I was feeling the same way about my ET Street Radials, they were just not hooking. Then I added some gap to the snubbers on my slapper bars and went with 16 psi (up from 13). Got my 60 ft down to 1.67 from 1.75-1.85s. This was with a short burnout, leaving about 1000 rpm. Good luck, let us know how it goes today.

Dam Jim, when was this pic taken, u looked a lil slimmer when i met ya. it was probably hot that DAY & made u swell up.......J/K!!!!

too bad this wasnt on the weekend i was there, always wanted to chk out a PCSA event... looks like u had fun.... good luck on ur next outing...

funny how those DR's like about 15psi.... & all these dam imports run like 2 psi in their slicks. saw a couple of Ricey's when i was @ irwindale, the dam rim looked like it was sitting on the ground & i was gonna tell him he had a flat....
