Now that I have these wider nitto tires on the rear hopefully that helps and was thinking about running a couple gallons of 100 octane unleaded fuel since I have the raised compression from pi swap

Fastest I've ran is 14.0@100 .without launching . I think 13.5 is Def possible but just decided to get some longtubes installed soon sI maybe 13.3 once those are installed but only problem is at 100 mph I'm at nearly redline in 4th so what do I do shift to 5th ??

Nice run, im doing the same right now. No need to shift w/ 3.73's usually with a 26 in. tire, or 17 in. Wheels you should be at red line by the finish line, like i am.

Huh? why are you shifting to 5th? you should easily make it down the track using 1st-4th with 4.10s on a PI 4.6

Never shifted into 5th just scared to let 4th stretch the tach like that seems like it's just sitting at 5800 rpm or something high like that

running a 14, you probably wont even redline 4th by the time you're down the track. Don't worry about it. Roll it out there. 5th is an overdrive gear.

Car could probably easily run a low 13 but I don't have drag radials and can not launch Makimg 60 ft time 2.2 and higher.
