Re: drag radials?

when it was dynoed by the old owner it was just over 400 at the wheels and like almost 600 lbs of torque, he used to take me for rides in it (before i owned it) and my neck would just feel like it wanted to snap lol so thats when i told him you ever sell this car i want it! but traction is a big issue i can be doing 80 in 4th and punch it and the *** end kicks out! so ya i need better tired lol

Re: drag radials?

id go with a nitto if i were youif you dont want to build an axle, one of our cobras makes 450hp, and 480tq and we snapped spider gears in it on mickeys. mickeys are nothin nice, the nittos or bfgs will give you a little slip start with small burnouts at the track so they will let loose a little.

Re: drag radials?

I use M/T Drag Radials for my summer street tire. At the track it's M/T Drag Slicks. The difference is HUGE for me. The radials are great for the street. If you are using them on a 15" rim, that make a decent strip tire. It's just easier for me to get into the 1.5 60 ft. times with the slicks.

Just my personal observations.
Jim
