weekend race...

Hi guys just finish yesturday a 20 mph roll out race i am happy with the car perfomances. I know I still have a lot to learn to improve my results.. My car is at 600 whp in a mustang dyno with AMS catless downpipe and BMS piggy and even with a 20mph roll when I shift to 2nd gear man I was getting some really bad wheel spin which I had to get off throttle and pick up again. My tire are 305 in the back with 5,000 miles on them... I would like your imput as to which tire (track tire) to buy for the eom rims..I have no expiriences on this matter so any input would be welcome... buy the way we had one bad incident were Eddie Bello porche crash in to the wall.. I will add pic of the incident to night. He was fine just a swollen eye..

Unfortunately, no matter what the conditions are you are always gonna get wheel spin in 1st. I don't even bother going full throttle anymore until I hit at least 40mph. Your only option would be drag radials. Even then, Im not sure that would eliminate it.

Sorry to see that crash. Glad that dude is ok.

If your just going to be drag racing, you will need Drag Radials like a Mickey Thompson tire, but you will need smaller wheels for those.

Also dude, I'm Puerto Rican too. Just wondering what the education system is like there in Puerto Rico since you seem to have a lot of grammar and syntax problems in your writing. Not trying to make fun, just trying to understand what you are saying, unless you typed it all on your iPhone or something. It could also be the University Professor in me. Haha! I have to grade papers a lot. Anyways, drive safe bro.

Remember too that if the tires don't slip, you will be putting more stress on something else in the driveline to slip (potentially break). Keep having fun though, some of us like to live vicariously!
