Any word on the forecast for Sat. in KY? I'd hate like hell to make the 5.5 hour trip down there and get rained out. I have not raced my car since June, my new MT drag radials are just screaming to...

I didn't even notice the non-PI part. That makes a big difference! I'd say those are pretty damn good numbers for a non-pi 3450 car on street tires.

Nitto's need to be heated up more than BFG's or MT's. I ran mine at 18 psi and did a good long smokey burnout, even then they'd only hook 50 percent of the time. Best I ever got with them was 1.78.

High 1.90's is about all you can expect on street radials. You can go better but it's not easy. With 4.10's and dr's you can hit 1.70's, going any better will require beefed up axels and rear.
