I laungh at around 3500-4000 and use drag radials at 16-20 psi. 60 foot times are 1.9-2.0 of I do it right. Street tires at 20 psi or so work pretty good but the drag tires make a big differance.

5,200rpm on Nitto drag radials, at 16-18psi, and let 'er rip. 1.98 60-ft times all day long, like that.

Of course, now with the T28, all that is out the window. :(
I bet. It's like drivin a new car now isn't it;)

well i can only run on street tires right now...40 profile at 32 psi...so if i launched at 5200 id be doing a burnout lol. i know low profile tires suck at the track..but i do not have enough mods yet to warrant drag tires.

I just went to the track recently on Falken Azenis. 28psi, 4500 rpm launch, and a 2.187 60'. I feel like the poster boy for these tires, since I can't shut up about them. I've got a 97 200 SE-R w/ GC-AGX combo running 375/275 springs, and the ride with Azenis is almost like stock. But the grip, oh god the grip... I'm just waiting to see how long they actually last, though.

I am running the Azenis on my stock G20 wheels too. At the track (road course) oh man they rule. On the street they are nice too, however I can feel that they have a pretty stiff sidewall. I've only drag raced with the azenis once. Trying them at the normal ~35 psi I wasn't able to hook up very well at all, however when i lowered them down to around 23psi that's when they started to kick ass. Unfortunately I only had 3 passes with them at that psi. First run i launched too high and spun them. Next two runs i bogged and still ran a 2.3x 60ft both times. :D I can't wait until I can make it back again.
