track traction and et

I had UMI UCA and relocation brackets with Spohn LCAs, and 4.10 gears installed. I have an opened stock air box and K&N filter, and Brenspeed 93 tune. I want to hit the drag strip shortly while it's cool and not too cold. Am I going to be traction limited on stock sized Falken tires (18")? Car has manual trans.
What e.t. can I expect?
BTW, This isn't my first trip, tho' I'm not a pro. So, I consider myself a fairly good driver (shifting etc.)
I can't afford DRs right now and don't know anyone with mounted DRs I could use so I'm going to brave it on street tires.
Thnx
Don

The best I could muster on street tires when my engine was stock was a 13.2 @ 106. That was with a very high 1.9 60'. The most difficult part is going to be the launch especially since you have 4.10's. You are going to have a hell of a time getting the car to launch since you'll be spinning like crazy.

Best of luck, but the 4.10's are really going to hurt you on street tires.

traction at track

Thanx for the reply. I figured as much. Even so, I would be quite satisfied right now with a low 13.
It feels slippery but so was my 01 Lightning. Just wanted an idea what to expect.
Thanx again.
