I was wondering what the perfect drag setup would be??? I have as of right now the following:

Lowered 2" in the rear
Lowered 1.5 in the front
Strapped when dragging
15T in the front
Stock Wheelbase
Stock Tires


Thinking of getting the following:

6 Inch extensions
Shinko Rear, Front Tire
Thin Headgastket
Adjust Cams
40 Shot of Nitrous

2 things..For the price, Shinkos can not be beat for the straightline racing. Tire Warmers??? I don't think they will get the job done and besides isnt that what the burnout box is for....IMO.....:dontknow:

The qualifiers have more tack to them. smaller contact patch but better rubber. as for the tire warmer yes that is what the box is for but if you are doing a burn out your heating up the surface of the rear tire. if you have a tire warmer on then the WHOLE tire is that temp all the way threw. and also a small burn out and your ready to go. less tire purchases due to less wear. so spend $250 on ebay for tomahawks and save $300 on tires....

I would suggest track time before Nitrous.....lots of track time. You don't get faster by making a once a month appearance to the track, not gonna happen.

You would be amazed at what just consistant trips to the track will do for your times. I went from running consitant 6.4's to consistant 6.1's with the same exact mods, But I was going to the track twice a week. A 40 shot of Nitrous would have put me into the 5's easily but to me it's more impressive to run 6.1's all motor with a $25 sprocket mod VS. running a 6.1 with a 40 shot of Nitrous, if your running Nitrous you better be really fast already or people out there (like me) will just make fun of you. :wink:

what your trying to do is not easy by any means. wht are you doing different when you go to the track?

1 understand what you want to do
a run consist of a combination of things

60' + 330 arethe most critical. you need both of those to have a quick pass.
if your 60 on a short bike is to good it may cause you to wheelie in the 330 so you lift the throotle to get the front end down and there goes you momentum. a good sixty and good 330 = good et

the sooner you get to WOT while controlling the front wheel the better
