    My 0-60 and 1/8 mile time suck because of lack of traction.
    Once my ZAutamotive Burnbox comes in, I will through the slicks on and hope to get it down to the mid to low 4’s

    Has it changed since you put those 315’s on the back?

    Not sure when it actually changed. would the different wheels and tires make a difference? I suppose that could be the reason.

    What is that in the middle of your lower grill?

    Just did 6.6 on my way to work. Maybe that’s as good as it gets now?

    Different wheels and tires can definitely make a difference.

    It could also be something as simple as the weather. What was the air temperature when you ran a 5.9? Any engine will run stronger when the air is cooler.

    put some 17" drag radials on that thing and it will fly, and also use a diablosport tuner for that v6. works wonders

    I like the look of my 315s on the back. I’ll gladly give up .7 seconds for it. I also have a Pedal Commander, so the throttle is more responsive.

    You’ll get more than a .7 out of it when you you can get a 13 sec 1/4 mile out of it. And a tuner does a lot more than just peddle sensitivity. Even running one of the canned tunes. You will be surprised how fast it can get. Also running a 17” drag radial for the track will maximize all the torque and rpm’s that those bigger tires won’t get you.
