Sticky Tires (Nitto NT-05R)
Rear that locks (Tru-Trac)

Here's a pic of what your using compared to some sticky tires





One of these wouldn't hurt either...

This is from the timeslip database....If Paulo is correct on his prediction here is what you would run with traction...........

Yes, I took already a look at the time slip database. +/-1.6 would be ok. But 1.9 is out of the question. People tolds me thats they cant see wheel spinning....

That V2 Blower hits HARD down low, You must be feeling spinning...OR is your traction control NOT turned off during your runs?

With stock tires I felt spinning the wheels, but since I have the nittos I never felt it...
TC was off.
I tried also pulling the ABS fuse or lower tire pressure (17rear and 32front).
Best time was on autostick an TC off.

You are saying you "DEAD HOOK" from a dig (no wheel spin) with your Nittos and Blower and run a 1.9 60 ft.?

Something isn't right here!

Nices tires! They are street legal? And the rear and is cool but veeery expensive :D
I'm not sure if they're street legal but they are very soft...probably wouldn't last very long. Also if it was wet out or cold you could have major traction problems!:D
