After taking my car to my local 1/8 mile track a few weeks ago with 26" tires I realized that my gearing and power wasnt going to work with that size tire so after searching around and trying to figure out which route to go I ended up with a set of 295/45/17 MT drag radial! I was leary of a radial tire with a six speed car due to my past experiences with wheel hop but I desperately needed the taller tire! Anyways....first two passes were terrible car started to wheelhop bad on 1st pass and just blew the tires off second pass! On the last run I decided to try and get the tires REAL hot so I did a pretty big burnout and it helped! I came out at 4,000 and rode the clutch till it got rolling good and this is it!

I know this car is going to fly when I get the boost turned up! Right now the car is still on 7.5 psi! Feel sure my goal of a stock LS2 manually shifted 9 second pass is just around the corner!
BTW I will be going to the 28" Hoosier slicks this week, radials are not for me i want to see a 1.4X 60'
