Noticed that R that ran 9.5 was 26” M&H slicks upfront and then 26” M&H radials in the rear. Seems like all are running slicks front and drag radials rear. That combo is on sale at Jegs right now for $720 shipped.

I’ll probably order that setup in the morning. Just tired of traction at the strip, my 0-60 is around half a second slower at the dragstrip vs street.

Order the NT05’s or the NT05R’s?.

When my closest 1/4 opened this year first day I went on 225 Federal 595ís before I got my tunes for different power levels in 1st...First pass I spun to redline on launch, Which caused it to over rev to 7.2k and put the car in protection mode until I let out. Went home after that run. Lol

I know what you mean. Back when I had the Federal 595RS-RR and used to DD my car I was putting 744 miles on them a week. They lasted no time at all.

Lol not trying to be, your gearing is lower than mine was and I would spin the nt555r a little, but either way you will be much better off.

Wheels and tires purchased. If anyone’s looking, Jegs has a good sale going on, saved $245 on 4 tires.

Pulled apart a fuse, then soldered leads on both fuse legs going to a switch, with an inline 15amp fuse on one. Just pull fuse #44 and insert the fuse legs into where the fuse was. Flipping the switch will break connection to the fuse and puts it in FWD. Will get dash warnings, though they go away when restarting the car.
