    Sticky tires. Some people are going to tell you to get every suspension piece in the book, but there are plenty of fast auto cars with all stock suspension. When you get to the 1.7s or quicker in the 60 foot, start thinking about some trailing arms, torque arm, panhard bar, and subframe connectors.

    heating up street tires does very little. sticky tires= drag radials of some sort for the street, and slicks for the track

    DRs are the best mod for traction....I would get a new tranny mount, it's going to go when you have DRs.

    15 inch wheels will not work unless you grind on the brake calipers to make them clear.

    I was refering to the width of you tires? The more meat on the ground the better traction your going to have.
