What? If your car is broken dont race it...

You can only do so much on street tires. If you want a better launch get a DR. The only problem then your 10 bolt is next to go shortly so ull want to upgrade that too. I tried to push my stock rear on a DR... broke it on a baby 2500 launch, first run out... junk.

No racing for you sir.

What is currently fixable will soon become very much a 1600$ boat anchor.
