I used MT DR for about 12 runs on my 00 GT 5 spd and the best 60' I could get was 2.102. That was on 275/40/17's at 12 psi. Spun hard off the line at any RPM, so I switched to 28/11.5/16 Hoosier QTP at 15 psi and my first time out cut .3 off my 60' times and dropped .3 off my ET at the same MPH as my personal best on DR. All of my 60' times were within .1 of each other.They hooked very well, no spin at all. My ET was improving .1 each run, launching at 3000-3500 with stock suspension. My prior best MPH on the DR was up to 113, but my ET and 60' were all over the place. My QTP just got better each run my first time out. Went 12.9, 12.8, 12.7, 12.6. I would definitely say run the slicks with the 5 speed, they are much more consistent. I would think the 26" slicks any width would be good for your power level. Even though I went with the Hoosiers, MT Slicks should treat you well. Let me know if you have any other questions, I'd be happy to share what has worked for me.
