I usually run on tracks that aren't prepped at all. Got my license on a wed night TNT street car night with zero prep on 255s. Took me about a dozen passes hot lapping the car to finally run a 9.

The current stock bottom end record is 12.38 so my goal is 12.37 or quicker. lol He ran that with 265whp on a 125 wet shot on VP-110 at 2410lbs. I'm making ~305whp at 14psi on pump 93 at about 2550lbs. His redline is 7,000rpm and mine is 7,800rpm. He has a 3.82 gear with 23" tires and I have a 4.06 gear with 24.5" tires so roll out is about the same. My top end charge with the turbo is a good bit stronger than his with the nitrous though.

My Focus has ~68,000 miles of which ~49,000 are boosted miles. My ultimate goal is to be the first one in the 11s and it has the power to do it.

Any radial car has a hard time running at norwalk or thompson. I dont know if its the glue or what, but if you have a turbo car on radials and run at norwalk and cant get it to hook, slap on slicks and it hooks like a mother fucker lol Milan is more of a heads up radial track and theres alot that run there.

Yeah, some of the really fast guys do, but I'm not fast yet. Maybe I'll think about traction control or a 7531 if I try to run 7s, but the plan for now is to not run faster than the 8.50 the cage is certed for.

Same story with the tracks around here. Not much heads-up stuff. 99% bracket racing big tire cars running 11s and 12s, so no prep is needed. I laugh when those guys bitch about the track being "greasy".

I can get the nova to hook no problem..even when i ran it at TNT at the track temp was 114. I know they got a new prep guy, so we will see if i can get the camaro to hook. Dont get me wrong, norwalk is a fantastic track...just hard to tune a radial for it. Thompson is finally starting to prep for radials cause OLS runs there and are trying to get a bigger car count for the series im running in the camaro. So it should hook there. If my buddys 2500hp car can hook at Thompson, i think i should lol

Yeah, that's always a good measuring stick. If the really fast cars can get down the track, then I should have no excuses when only running 9s. Also, this year I am going to be running a powerglide. I've always been using a TH350, so switching to a powerglide should actually make things easier on me to get into the 8s. 3.89 rear with a 1.80 first gear running 8s should be way easier than 4.56 rear with a 2.52 first gear running 10.5s or 3.89 rear with 2.52 running 9.8s.
