    That is amazing -- 15k miles on DR's.. I think that will be what I replace my tires with then (summer time)

    Depends on the DR

    M/T's no spin on 2500 launch.
    BFG's almost no spin on 2500 launch.
    555r's some spin on 2500 launch.

    Track condition is also a factor, but thats is on a pass by pass basis.

    Powershifting-do this only if you dont mind grenading your driveline, ls1's, even in stock form, are more than capable of producing shrapnel, so if you have a trailer, and lots of cash, by all means knock yourself out. If You want to get your car home in one piece, under its own power, forget it, at some point , You will have a catastrophic driveline failure using this method.
