So I'm curious. I have full bolt ons, cams, and 410s. How hard is it to break when launching on drag radials? I'd love to be able to launch violently on some sticky tires but my car has 82k and its my DD. I really don't want to pop a tranny or rear end. Unleash the knowledge please.

It's hit or miss if you want to leave like you are implying.
You can hook and get good times without dumping the clutch at 6k (although it is more fun that way).
Part of racing and modding things is breaking parts.

Yea I really wanna bang a wheelie. Or at least pick the drivers tire up. I guess that'll have to wait a year or so lol. But yea I'm comfortable with the breaking part. It's just that after the end of this year I wanna save up to buy a house so I'm gonna put the brakes on the mods. Street tires it is for now then

If you had a set of stones, you would just try it 12-15 times and let us know how it goes.

No seriously, I have no idea.

Bias ply tire would be your friend. Softer sidewall absorbs more shock.

DRs are good for auto cause the drivetrain is preloaded, slicks are better for stick cause the softer sidewall

I never broke anything on my 02 gt with 4.10 and full bolt ons. Launched at 2500 and got a 13.2

Nice. I focused most of my mods on tires and suspenion because that's what I like to do. Lol it's confusing the first time but after you're first run its easy. This is my fav run I did http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=E9iwCFkPJEM

If its your first time do a few walk throughs and ride with a few different experienced drivers. You can figure out the course as well as the most efficient lines to take.

If you screw up and miss a turn the worst thing you do is take out a few cones, just don't drag them through the rest of the course.
