    Need some advise

    Okay quick question iam going to the track this weekend and my question is. I have these nitto 555 zr on the back ( that i just put on and haven't really dealt with these tires) with some drag bags, i also have a 3500 stall. What do i need to do with these tires and drag bags to get some decent traction at the track.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Your 60' will be dependant on track prep and driver skill. More of the former means you can get away with less of the latter. And with a 3500 stall it depends on what rear gear you have as to whether or not you'll overpower those tires.

    My 3.73 geared 3400 stall car overpowered Nittos 555r's whereas it hooked just fine before the stall.

    Edit: Air the tires down to about 22-24 psi before you run....

    40lb in the right bag, 8lb in the left bag, and back radials around 22lb...
    Power brake your RPM's around 1600 - 2000... Good Luck !!!
