    Maybe if you can't drive.
    Plenty of blokes on the XR6T forums have done fine.
    Tyre: Nitto Invo
    Size : 245/40/18
    T/W: 260
    ET: 11.2
    MPH: 128.5
    60f: 1.834

    Tyre: Kumho KU31
    Size : 235/45/17
    T/W: 320
    ET: 11.9
    MPH: 120
    60f: 2.09

    nittos invos
    11.9 et
    119 mph
    1.798 60ft
    245/35/19s

    Tyre: sports max
    Size : 245/35/19
    T/W: 260
    ET: 11.7
    MPH: 130
    60f: 2.234

    I can keep going if you like. The above cars all have more then 250rwkw. There is more to how a car can put power to the ground then tyres.

    I'm with airstrike.. Street Tyres are fine for the occasional drag racer.. No sense buying yourself a set of ET Streets and rims to suit if you're only gonna be hitting the drag strip once or twice a year. Of course if you wanna go spend $1000+ on rims and drag radials go for it.. My car has got around 450rwhp and on 440 Treadwear cheap street tyres I can 2.0s the 60'.. If I got slicks I'd probably be able to 1.7-1.8 the 60' and shaved 0.4-0.6 off the 1/4 time but I'm more interested in what it runs in street trim, not bragging rights on a car forum.

    And the XR6T 60' times he posted I'd almost say the good ones around 1.8 are ZF autos and the crappy ones are probably the manuals..

    Have a look at my time slip, it's a classic case of the quicker car getting a slower ET... The guy beside me had a better RT, higher trap and I got .8 of a second on him :)

    I have an Auto and leave TRAC ON and I run KU31's (not even new tyres), this was only my 2nd trip out to Willowbank. I can't remember what he had, no-one remembers the losers, but you can tell it's a quicker car with more power but he's not getting it onto the track. :)

    Reaction time has nothing to do with ET or MPH.

    ^This Guy..
    RT only matters when competitively racing.. At Test and Tunes it won't apply..

    I had this argument with a fella the other day because he tried to take a 1.2sec RT off his ET and claim his car was faster then mine..

    Ok, so I've looked into it further and now I understand RT more in relation to ET, I didn't say it effects MPH btw.

    I guess in my case you would be looking at the 60' time.

    ET is timed from when you break the staging beam, R/T is only taken into account with a pro tree. Standard racing in Australia is based on the ET only.
    Good example is turbo cars. I had runs where my R/T was 4-5 seconds and the other car was .5-1 yet as I had a lower ET I won.

    Just thought I would add to this that reaction time rt is the time is takes from the light turning green till breaking the starting beams which in turn starts your et timer .

    Rt is only taken into arount in actual racing not grudge racing or tnt . But it is a good thing to learn to nail and get down as reaction time and 60ft is where the race will be won or lost in competitive racing

    And to clarify this you didn't cross the line first and won because you had a lower et in tnt . If you sat there for 5seconds in a competitive dial in race this would not be the case

    With a dial in race you must cross the line first and be under your dial in time to win . You can also win if your cross the line second but only if the car that crossed the line first "broke out" or crossed the line at a lower et than they dialed in before the race .. if you red light at the start you lose

    thanks guys for correcting me there, you learn something new every day. It's funny my Uncle and Aunt (brother and sister) both race semi-professionally and could probably tell me all this stuff but they live on the other side of the country.

    I was kind of hoping to show [p]wrr-247 that his car is capable of more when little ol' me in my Monaro can do better than his tuned car on street tyres and I'm a newbie.

    Still need to know the MPH to know what power it really makes.

    i agree with what you are saying with running street tyres for the occasional street meet,but there so many factors in drag racing i figure the more you can put in your favour the better and more consistent result you will have .make your dial in so much easier to work out meet after meet guys on the street tyres pulling there hair out with there dial ins, 8.3 8.6 8.1 8.5 you give away 2 tenths in elimininations your outa there horses for courses.1/8 mile times

    Yeah exactly.. When I ran bad ET's my MPH was still basically the same.. Which calculated fairly close to the power level my car achieved on the dyno..

    spot on 60ft is down its going to wheel spin or driver error.

    all the car manufacturers, magazines, high school and general pub talk has always revolved around QUARTER mile times. come in here and its predominantly 1/8th mile! what is this blasphemy!? lol
