Default Put slicks on the car, or no?

I just posted a thread a few days ago saying that i was going up to Rt. 66 this weekend to run my car for the first time and I might have access to a set of slicks to put on the back. I was wondering if i should put them on there or not... I REALLY dont want to break the rear end. It's an auto so it's not as bad as a M6, but still, it worries me. I do know that it will help with my times though. What do you guys think? And how much will it help on my ET? Thanks!

A lot of auto's run gears & slicks with no problems on a 10 bolt. Slicks will help out on a prepped track.

M6's are especially hard on rears because its like pounding the rear every time you bang gears. i broke mine at the track on street tires, lol. but autos are soo much better on rears.

Thats gonna be fun driving down the road on slicks, lol.
