    Hell yea , we already gotta bunch of big dates set ... Lower mainlands fastest street cars , stick warz , 604 outlawz . So it should be fun ... I'm the most excited about the street car one because you have to do a cruise with a bunch of check points before hitting up the strip and can't change your tires when you get there it's run in the trim you cruise in .... Sure no problem I run et streets bias ply on the street

    Im ready to see what my car actually runs at the track. Btw, how does bias ply tires in the rear make the car handle? Ive read that they arent supposed to be mixed with radials in the front. I need to upgrade to something other than M/T et street drag radials.

    They're fine on the track . It's recommended not to run them mixed on the street , but i always have for years . I just know to go slow in corners .

    Bias tend to follow every rut/crack in the road a lot more too

    Sounds like riding a motorcycle on the interstate when you hit the rain grooves.

    Yep, every time I ran on the street with bias I was driving like an old person, under the speed limit and like 10 MPH under the limit for corners :)

    With that new widebody setup it's going to be hard for people to beat you . With all that power and torque it just flys on the course

    never know, the national circuit is a bit more intense than regional. I'm going to be running C-Prepared at nationals which brings out cars like this...:
