I would think the soft compound of the snow tires would make it slower. Then again, you could be in an area where it's not too high and your car was breathen good.

Good job man, the first time I ever took mine to the track I sucked. Just takes practice I guess. If you haven't tried auto cross I recommend you do. I think thats the way to go if you want to really have fun. Not that drag racing isn't fun though.

maybe ill try it but i think id like to do some suspension and tires first but its my DD not my race car i think drag racing with FWD = Fail my Srt4 i would do 60-65mph rolling burnouts sucks playing on the highway and losing to cars because of traction

That was the only run I made. I waited as long as i could but had a long ride home. I went a few 13.7's at honda day at atco and was hoping to improve on that but too many cars broke. i will try to make it out again soon

Flash Pro, Invidia exhaust, Kidd Racing header, and custom 3.5" intake. I just did the new intake so i was hoping to see a difference.
