    Launching on ice???

    Any tips for launching a M6 on ice with drywall screw studded tires? I haven't done it yet. It's a 1/8 mile track on a lake. Any other tips from anyone that has raced on ice?

    One of my friends set a stock car studded tire record with a 05 GTO that he wants to run me with. I'm worried about putting the tires on my car! Not the ones I'm going to use but very similar.

    I don't have drywall studded tires, but I have regular steel studded tires and all our roads are ice/snow covered for the most part right now (Alaska), I recommend just easing into it from idle and the give it 3/4 throttle. My car will just spin if I gun it at all from a stop. Just from my experience, your tires might dig into the ice better though.

    You guys just want a video of me blowing up the rear! I'm still on the stocker and am not ready to replace it yet. I really hope the ice would break before the rear though!

    good idea

    how cool would that be if a car could pull the front tires on ice.

    I'll give the 6K clutch dump a try. It's stock motor so the stock clutch should hold. I guess I'll find out.

    The truck isn't back in running order as of yet. Still under construction. Hopefully it'll be ready to run next winter.

    Some do! There's a few people running rails up there. 130 - 140 mph on ice in the 1/8.

    how do you keep the car straight? You can't run street tires on the front and still steer the car?

    I'll have winter tires up front, but most people run regular all seasons or some crazies will run the drag skinnies.
