sometimes its good and sometimes its bad. and its always humid and hot.
they spray the water to much and its hard to go around. theres no reason for me to do a burnout

With those tires you really should do a burnout. A friend of mine was racing the same tire, ditched them for MT's a little while later and was much happier.

If street radial means street legal tire with race compound, I agree with U238.

I have tried Toyo R888 tires, which are street legal circuit tires, and my 60ft were same as with factory Bridges.
best 60ft times:
- 1.95s with Briges
- 1.94s with Toyo R888 and lighter rims.

I would love to see Nitto NT05R/555R drag radial tested tho.
