    Agreed, an actual set of tires for the strip would take care of the issue no doubt.

    My biggest issue is with this build I refuse to run two sets of tires....I enjoy taking the car to the strip and not doing anything but backing it out of the garage. However, I also know that doing so means I leave E/T on the table with the inability to exploit the 60' capability of the setup. I could go with a softer compound like the NT05R's, but I also refuse to give up tread wear life being as the car does see a few trips here and there.

    Ultimately, this car will never live up to it's full potential solely because of this reason.

    I appreciate your help on the CV shaft brucelinc! We had discussed this option back on the other thread for that, and indeed it is a great budget friendly upgrade!
