S60 is the way I'm leaning.

I don't get it. Especially a M6 car going to the dragstrip.

S60... I wouldn't worry about the weight. That's only if you're into handling, which you sort of threw out the window by going to a 15" drag radial. Just get the most cost effective and bullet proof thing out there. Your Vikings will control it no problem.

Not really sure I understand the comment that you only worry about weight if you are into handling. Every drag racer I know is concerned with weight and weight always matters no matter what part it is on the vehicle.

I'm in the same boat Phoenix. I was considering rebuilding the 10 bolt or swapping to a 12 bolt but when I started really looking at "complete" packages and pricing, it's hard to justify not just going with an S60 or fab 9" from the start. I don't think you could go wrong with either of those two.

I don't believe he is drag racing. He has a street car. And the 15" drag radial is not going to handle great either way. So adding unsprung weight is not going to do much to change the dynamics of the car on the street. That's what the comment meant.

We have definitely sold a lot of S60's over the years to many happy customers. Like anything else we are now seeing a few of them sell them off to purchase our fabricated housing because they out grew the needs of a S60 though the S60 will take most a very long way and if you already have a torque arm (quality one) then it is a great bang for the buck.

However if you are starting fresh we have priced our fabricated nine inch to be in price with a S60 and the cost of an aftermarket torque arm.
