Slicks are actually better then drag radials, The sidewall of a slicks gives and wrinkle so it takes most of the shock and strain off the drivetrain. I daily drive on drag radials and would never attempt to launch hard on them cause it would brake an axle

weight that night should have been right at 2500 with me in it. the launch control you heard was the mr2 next to me, you can hear me kick the revs up like right as im about to start letting out the clutch, i always take my foot off the gas when shifting.

Was a guy up here running some on the 15" LX alloys and got me thinking (on a mid 60's Rambler).
I need some and I want to keep weight as low as possible.
The wheels were bassett ultra lites

this was on a stock tune so there was no launch control.
