  1. Hello guys wondering if u guys could help me out i have a 93 calypso turbo mustang currently 597 rwhp and 3.27 geats need help on slick to make it hook with a two step off the line 5 speed best tomes so far 1/8 mile is 1.5 sixty ft 6.6 @110 with a 28/9/15 mt et
     
  2. got any video of what the car is doing off the line? thats more then enough tire. hell you could make a 26x8.50 work
     
  3. i want to try 26/10/15 get better sixty ft and also what u think would chaging up my gear to 3.55 help me
     
  4. Personally I would like to see you use a radial. No reason a 600rwhp car can't get down the track on a radial tire. I'm not a big fan of slicks...

    @Calypsoturbo where are you from?
     
  5. If the chassis is set up properly a 26x8.5 can take a lot more power than 600 to the tire. We went [email protected]+mph in the 1/8 with a 3300lb car on a 26x8.5 Hoosier. Had a best 60 foot of 1.29 and there is still more left in the tire.
     
  6. I'm all for a radial on a car but on a stick its just one more thing to get right on the launch
     
  7. what's your suspension/chassis setup consist of?
