anyone have any ideas on how to get some real tires under this beast?

i have to roll into the gas peddle in 1st the when it shifts to 2nd i hit it and it still blows the tires off..

these big brakes will be a challenge to work around...

any ideas?

i would love a 17" rim but i think an 18" might be the smallest to clear the brakes..

this would be for the track not to drive around with everyday

I dont know if you'll be able to pull that off, those calipers are some big @rse suckers. I did have luck having better traction with the nitto invo's

Corvette owners are giving great feedback on the Nitto NT-05's. There are definitely wheels that will fit over the calipers, except it's not going to be cheap.

Ill have cheap 18inch rims for you guys as soon as this friday comes and i am at the track. Trying them out.

They will be light weight for less than 400 bucks each.

Lightweight & cheap ? you have my attention. Any plans to do some kind of catch can setup to compliment your intake system ? - since it doesnt have that goofy loop to hold oil funk in ?
