Boost

You guys that are boosted on a stock block help me out. I want to run some street radials on my car, but curious to know if I'm in danger of breaking something if I track it? I know there is always a danger of snapping something. I figured my clutch would take most of the beating since it's the stock clutch, but is there anything else like the tranny in danger? I don't think I'll be doing 5k dumps at all but just wanted insight. I have 555s on now and they spin constantly with 450hp

I'd change the drive shaft to a one piece. That would your weakest link.


Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.

Drag radial have a higher chance of breaking axles etc vs a slick

Just stock block with a 2.3 tvs, headers, rear lca, 4.10s which were done before the blower.
Rap really? Not questioning you but more curious to how? Is it that the radial might spin and catch at higher rpm vs a slick just straight grippin?

That's it plain and simple.

For a auto it's different. For a manual you will want a slick if you plan on launching hard.
