    What psi on slicks, to save rear end?

    Well to start off I got a 98Z28 with a tr224 and a vig3200 stall, with exhaust and was wondering since im going to the track tomorrow and my only source of traction are Hoosier 27x10.5/15 slicks that If aired the tires high enough to loose a little bit of traction so that I could not brake my rear would work? And what psi should I run on them , and what should be my 1/8 mi time?

    Good luck on not popping that rearend.

    You might want to just baby it out of the hole. The A4 is easier on the rearend than the M6, so you have that going for you.
    Don't warm them much either.
    Good luck!!
