i think its about low 20s. The problem is how are you going to fill the tires back up when you leave to go home. Driving at 22 PSI = :shakehead :nervous:

i lowered my stock michellins at the track as low as 17 psi. yea i know! thats pretty low....but i know people that put there psi to 14 psi (ericcarver1, if you know him on the boards) just practice your launches...or buy better tires. Azenis arent a bad choice and alot of people have good results with them.
i use 215/45/16 azenis ...work great
and i use nitto nt555r 205/45/16 which produce consistent low 60 ft times. 2.1's maybe lower if your a real good driver.

if your in so-cal...im selling my 2 nitto drag radials mounted on stock rsx rims

Yeah the Michelins aren't that hard to launch on. My problem with them is they want to spin at the top of 1st and on the 1-2 shifts.

I usually pull 2.18-2.20's, but I've pulled a few 2.14-2.16's on the stockies. It's not too hard. I just lower my pressure to 23lbs, launch about 4500-5000, and slip the clutch.

And those times are without the J's Torque Dampner on or ES MM's so don't think it's impossible to get decent 60fts out of the stockies :thumbsup:

I just sit back, relax, and slip it in and out. Just ride it for a few seconds then pop it. It's a rush and a good feeling at the same time. :thumbsup:
