Strickly seat of the pants, done on an industrial street (not too clean) with NO burnouts and street psi (about 32psi)
Picture above was a 4000rpm dump. Came close to bogging & I hit the 6200 limiter, so did not try shift to second. It kind of surprised me how it hooked and I wasn't ready.

Second picture, from stop sign, on the way down the back street, no burn out, 5200rpm side step, with no lift shift to 2nd.
It appears there is lots of wheel spin/rubber laid down, but I assure you it was REALLY hooking up. I'm sure on a prepped track at 16-18psi these things would be killer.

Car is coup, BONE STOCK ZERO MODS to date, 6m trans. I only tried them for a few minutes and had Discount Tire put my PS2's back on. I'll go back in a couple of days to have them put on again so I can take the "All Angles" requested photos.

Stay tuned
George

Looking forward to seeing how these turn out. Seems like more sidewall would be nice, I personally would love to see a 16" wheel option for us and drag racing

16" wide?

16" in diameter. With a 28x10.0x16 Hoosier slick, or maybe run a wider large sidwall radial. More sidewall = more traction

I'd rather go ghetto and plug the brake lines, remove the calipers and rotors when at the track.

different strokes for different folks. I think a V with a slick/skinny setup leaving on nitrous at the track would be sick
