if we're talking drag radials than you're 100% right as far as track goes as i've never had good luck with drag radials at track with a stick. be it na, novi or turbo. on the street it's lot different for me as my car hooks pretty good, even running NT05Rs on 18s. second gear will fight it but third and on is gone and retarded (nothing pulls like a turbo). that's on the 550 turbo tune. on the 650 and 700 tune it's very surface dependant but driving around on 20psi helps and so second will fight more but third is just stupid aka gone with little fight. and again, LOT better than the track. i plan on setting up boost by gear and still have to play with my timer/delay on the AMS500 boost controller.
ok as far as slicks go i was able to find some data which i will give us much detail as possible and you guys can take it for what it is.
novi2000 from few years back at 11#, aggressive tune, 550rwhp, 500rwtq, drag oriented suspension, 26x10.5x15 et streets in the rear, skinnies in the front, and no front sway bar. good track prep and car nice and cool.
turbo setup at 11#, conservative tune, 550rwhp, 550rwtq, road racing suspension, 26x10.5x17 (yes 17s for now to clear my cobra brakes), 18" saleens in the front. sway bar disconnected but not removed. good track prep but car was hot lapped like 5 times in the row.
i later discovered, or maybe forgot, about an added safety map in the pms which we did for the initial setup while everything, motor wise, was being dialed in. this safety feature pulls timing and adds s**t load of fuel when the car hits 200 degrees so hence the lower mph. i've hit 130 on this tune before. needless to say it will get bumped up to like 215-220 area. also, plan on running 28" et drags on a 15" wheel this season which i know will help lot.
here are the details on the suspension, which is obviously not ideal for drag racing although i'm extremely happy with the 60's given what i have as this is a street and not a drag car... maximum motorsports hd torque arm, nearly 400# traditional springs in the rear cause of it, 375# coilovers in the front which translate to like 900# traditional spring. and tokico 5 ways on all fours.
