    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?

    If the chassis is set up properly a 26x8.5 can take a lot more power than 600 to the tire. We went 5.78@120+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.

    I'm all for a radial on a car but on a stick its just one more thing to get right on the launch
