do you still have your stock rims? You might want to put them on the next time you go to the track.

For a loaded down SSE that'* not too bad. The outer rotating mass is killing your slower acceleration, but the 60' isn't HORRID for your kinda power. Subs + 20'* + SSE body and no i, means you'll run slower then a stock SE.
