I have no idea. I have basically no experience launching the SSEi at the track so I couldn't tell you. I would say 1.9'* aren't out of the question and 2.0'* should be pretty easy to come by considering what you were pulling with the Potenza'*. Just my opinion though. I think it will take some practice but you should be able to knock it down into the 1.9 range.

Thanks.
My goal this summer is to get my 60 foots down to 1.8'* but this will depend a lot on track conditions.
My goal for times is for 13.5'* and 100+ trap speeds.

Did a trial fit to see how the wheels and Mickey Thompsons fit inside the trunk.
Fricking tight
I'm starting to think seriously about driving down to the meet with them. What do you think about using them for the 2 five hour highway runs there and same back.

I suppose I could put them on the back seat but my beer cooler would be out of reach. :(

My bad. Yes Johns is a 92. I'll edit that.
I changed my mind on the silver paint.... for now.
Still too cold here to paint anyway.
