The the GTO has a new converter, new trans, new rear diff and new axel stubs ("new version" of OEM rear diff and stubs). I've also bought a new helmet and a fire jacket. I can't make up my mind if I should go to the track or not. I mean I want to, but I can't afford to break anything else.

However the car will be on 285/35/18 Nitto 555R drag radials. So it's not like it will hook that well. On top of that I will only spray a 150 shot and dump in 3-4 gallons of 109 oct gas just to help keep down any detonation that there might be.

10.7 @ 131 is my goal with around a 1.5x 60'. Though I don't have my BFG DR's or a set of MT ET Streets anymore and these Nittos will not cut that. So low 11's would be a good goal now.

Well I'll be getting race fuel and nitrous today. Befor I do anything I'm gonna have my transmission guy take the car for a spin. It seems to be doing fine, but I want him to give me the OK befor I go beat on it.

Cam (+valvetrain), FAST 90 intake, electric water pump, long tubes, catback, dyno tune, converter, trans, suspension, blah blah.

I don't see the 1.5s happening at the moment, but mid-11s are somewhat feasible.

Mid 11's should be cake on spray.

Car is giving me too many issues to take it to the track. I'm thinking of just selling it, I can't afford to keep on replacing crap. The worst part is I don't even beat the crap out of the car... meh.

Nittos are junk,hence why no domestic cars run them in any sorta compitition.......If you want to hook up youll need a 15" rim and a Mickey Thompson Drag Radial

Be smart, Sell it before you're too far behind.

Too far behind now to sell it. I doubt I could get another loan for another vehicle now, I'm stuck with it.

Stick with low grip tires and ditch the nitrous then. Maybe get a cam thats not so agressive as well.

Lots of domestic cars use Nittos. On top of that I cut my best 60' with 275 Nittos and stock suspension, which was a 1.78... of course the motor was heat soaked so the ET was so-so. With 285 Nittos and an aftermarket suspension I would think 1.7's would be an average 60'... of course that would depend if they prep the track well or not, lately they have not been.

The cam is fine. Nitrous is almost never used and the car is tuned very safe for it (15 degress of timing & running alittle rich), on top of that race fuel is used to keep detonation down when I know I'm going to spray. The car has been having some sensor issues lately, it hasn't been fun.
