right now i have 275/60/15 mickey thompson but i want some 17x11 ccw classics for street and track, but i dont want to be giving up too much traction, i was wanting at least a 315 drag radialal.
this is in a 2000 trans am with a 408 a a shit load of nitrous and a 4l80e fulle weight

If I'm not mistaken, Mighty mouse cut a 1.35 60fton m/t 315/35-17 and then went to a 295/45-17 and went 1.33 .

1.64 so far with a 3200 stall / 100 shot. nothing special just my best. my setup is a little more aggressive now. should be able to do better.

haha, hes on a local board. its a notch back.

he drove to an NMRA race, entered and won wild street on 17's .

as he was disassembling his trophy, a track official comes over and asks "why dont you just put it in your trailor?" he says, "i dont have one, i drove this here from md." needless to say, the guy was speechless.:D
