What are you guys slipping the clutch at 3500-4k rpm? Running pilot sports and I'm trying to find that sweet spot.

Depends entirely on track and air pressure.

On stock PS tires I'd start at 22psi. Clean them off nicely (Drive around the waterbox if possible and then clean off the tires), bring revs to about 3500rpm roll off the gas and into the throttle smoothly and see what the track will hold. You probably wont be able to go full WOT until 2nd gear.

I've gone 12.2 at 119mph on stock street tires and 11.8 at 120mph on DRs with the six spd manual in my 2012 Wagon. (Airaid was only mod)

Chris-

Wow, those are some impressive numbers. What DR's are you running and what size? I've seen guys use the Z06 spyder fronts for drag rims. Do you know if NT05R's will fit on our stock rear rim by chance? I want something fairly sticky to play around with on the street too. Thanks for the info and Wagons rule all, too bad I cant afford one just yet.

Thanks! I'm using replica 09+ Z06 fronts and 305 MT ET Drag radials. (18 inch diameter)

Not sure on the NT05 for the street...I've heard from friends in high HP setups (1K RWHP Vipers etc) that they can be dangerous even in damp driving conditions. I plan to pick up 295 Michelin SS's when the stockers wear out. They hook better than stock and last longer to boot.

Cheers,
