Slicks and wheels on order!!

Justin

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
Special thanks to the woman that hit my beater car. Got a 1805 dollar check to get it fixed...I can fix it with no money.

Anyways because of that I ordered 15x8 Darkstar wheels, 28x9x15 Mickey Thompson ET Drags w/tubes and lug nuts for under 1k. I will be getting the 17x4.5's for the front later in life.

I went with the 15x8 so I would not have to use a swaybar relocation kit. As I dont not want to cut anything on the car and those kits require cutting.

Cannot wait to get them and hit the track!!!

Is this the same one that stopped running when you went through a puddle? That car has had some bad luck.
it is lol. it was hit first before the lake I drove through lol. I paid 500 for the car put about 2k in it I got my use out of it lol
 
Sounds like money well spent. My truck gets hit about once every two weeks when I am at work, I can't figure out why. It is always the same place, at one point I thought maybe I was hitting stuff and not noticing but I parked it with my GF and came back and there was a new one so one of us should have noticed if I did it.

Nice on the wheels and tires. Too bad you aren't doing the skinnies too though, that is worth at least a tenth or two. At least it always has been in my experience.

Think you can crack 11's adding these on top of the new DSS shaft?

I think 11's for sure. I will hitting the track with
DSS Driveshaft
BBR LCA's
Magnaflow cat back
and hopefully Steeda CAI and tune

My friends GT's are running 11.70's with about the same mods on there GT's so I hope to best them :)

Didn't know if you were gonna hit the track with the tune, that should be good for .2 - .3 for sure. Be interesting to see which launch control RPM will work best with your new list of mods.

Just curious,

Why did you decide to go with a 9" slick? That's pretty narrow. Rolling resistance concern?

You still running stock 3.73's?

well according to the guy to go wider I would have had to run a 15x10 wheels then I would have to cut on the car for a sway bar relocation kit. so I went that route as I dont want to cut on the car at all.

I ran that size once on a Hoosier DOT slick and it was not enough tire. Car was a 489rwhp (at the time) '99 GT, but it did not transfer weight well.

Who knows it might be fine in your case with the NA, heavy Boss.

A full slick will wrinkle a lot more than any DOT slick.

I'll find out soon enough. Ran a 1.8 60' with 28x11.5 17 ET street hope it bests that or equals it

Will you have a tune for your return trip to the track, or running with stock tune? Just curious to compare back to back times with the slicks vs. the drag radials. I do realize you have the driveshaft this time though, but should be a good comparison nonetheless (minus worse DA now).

I wasnt running a radial last time the ET Street I am talking about is the one with lines cut in it

I may go before I get the CAI and tune. Just depends on how soon I get the money for that. cant run the stock tune with the steeda CAI. wish I could.
