Not if your tires are overheated, it could create more problems. If I recall, didnt your 60 foots not break 2.2? Poopy for AWD.

it is very hard to overheat street tyres by doing a skid on the start line, you are more likley to overheat your clutch and get clutch slip. still sean is right there is not much point in doing a burn out on street tyres other that to get the trap water off them.

to give you some idea of what the gt4 (alltrac) will do, i cut a 1.82 60ft on a very slippery track. the only suspension mods are bigger wheels and tyres (215/45 R17). my car pushes 151 wkws. my car weights 1380kg without me in it.

i would guess you should cut a 1.7ish 60ft and should run a mid to low 12. since your engine was overheating i would say the ecu was dumping a hell of a lot of fuel in to try keep it cool. if it is still slow with the new radiator do a run with the data log turned on and compare it to the dyno data log.

don't mind me, i always need help

Your launch definitely needs working on.. I get 2.1 60's in my '01 celica gt-s with street tires. But there's definitely something else wrong there to be trapping 105mph.. that's WAY too low.
