We've switched from M/T Sportsman Pro to ET Street Radials and have gone from 8.36 @ 168 to 8.23 @ 167 in full street trim.
The 8.23 was done on a cold day with track temps in the 50s(the Sportsman Pro would never hook well on a track that cold)with a 1.28 60ft.
Here are some pics(I hope!) Enjoy!

The car runs 315/60/15 on a 12" rim. according to M/T the 315 and 325 have the same tread width so we opted for the taller tire for the longer footprint.
It is a pump gas motor,we use UK spec 98 octane(same as your 93)with an octane booster on the track and 95 octane (91?)on the street.
A 30 mile road cruise is part of the Street Eliminator UK qualifying procedure including a fuel stop and hot start test,if you can't complete the cruise you don't qualify.
The motor is 545ci 4.39 bore x 4.5 stroke in a D9TE block with a 4 bolt conversion and bryant billet crank,bill miller ally rods & pistons,A460 heads,tunnel ram & 2 1050s,custom nitrous roller cam and compression is over 12/1
We are planning to upgrade the n2o system before our next outing and hope to be in the 7s by the end of the year!
Watch this space!!!!!!!!!
