    Two months ago again. how'd the QTP's do for ya, I have the 17x10.5 TT M wheels on the back of my car, and was considering buying 15" rims and QTP's or the MT et street radial or the Hoosier radial. Both 315/35/17

    Dead hooked.
    1.725 bogging. Stupid M6.
    Elevation doesn't help either. Video is a 7500DA afternoon.

    Gotta get the bog figured out...and the car will go pretty good.

    The one drag radial I tried was the MT radials. They bit...but not like the QTP's do.
    Best ET's were spinning on those.

    I think you made the right choice with the QTPs. Those or the ET Streets. I've always heard the QTPs have a slight advantage. What RPM are you launching at? Seems like it's not high enough for the new found traction. I never launch anything less than 6,000 myself. Definaetely doesn't sound like enough rpm to me.

    Still learning.

    Do you drop the clutch? Or slip it a bit?
    There was a slip of the clutch from redline in that video. Grabbed well.
    Probably won't be down to the track again for a few months though...so for now...

    I just dump it. Not side step it like some do, just pull my foot off it as fast I can. At 6,000+ no reason to slip it. It'd cry uncle I think. Just get them rpms up there and give it hell.

    RWHP? or ET's?
    I can't remember...been a while since I saw what you car runs.

    Maybe I will just go beat on it later this year. I still think 11.70 is do-able with my pussy shifting and a solid launch.

    I got like 401rwhp on a Mustang dyno. Went 11:89@118 with a 1.655 60ft. Launched somewhere just over 6 grand and still spun. I don't worry about breakin the tranny. 12 bolt scares me sometimes, you got a 9inch so I say dump it. Good driveshaft is a must too.

    Probably about what I make at altitude.
    No idea what kind of abuse that T56 can take. We'll see later this year.
    Also tugging the ProKit off in favor of Strano springs...which should help ever so slightly.
