    Well if your "thinkin sticky" and Nittos your mistaken!!
    Unless you plan on only trying to get them to work on a WELL preped track they will NEVER hook on the street unless you have a 13 second car.
    Save yourself the wasted money and at least get the BFG's if your on a budget.
    If money is NO object and your true goal is trying to hook on the street than get some M&H's. Our testing has shown that the Mickeys will hook up second best in drag radials with Hoosiers coming in third.
    The Hoosiers are a little lighter than the Mickeys so it helps the mph but due to the lack of tread grooves they tend to spin easier on the street than the M&H's or Mickeys.
    Either way I wouldn't run Nittos again unless they were on a daily driver.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    You tell me

    I just did a lot of mods to my car and now I need a new torque converter. I just don't know what brand to get. The guy at the shop I but my stuff from says a TCI but i don't know. Last Dyno I had was 430 to the floor but I've done a few things so I'm expecting about 450-475. What do I need. WS6 convertable 2000.

    Had nothing but bad luck with TCI's conv. They work ok until the baby get's bottle feed. I really like Daaco's conv. and you can't beat the price!

    Though, I got the tci rebuilt, along with my tranny it took out a few yrs ago, it's coming back out due to it being too loose for the bottle. The Edge is just a better made converter with anti-ballooning plates, etc.
