so what was your point? You must have been looking at all of those dyno charts wrong, plus the scaling was different on the HP and torque on every single one of those dyno charts. Only 1 of them had more TQ than HP and all of them the TQ was dropping hard in the upper revs. So I am obvioulsy missing your point.

I'd definately look into mustang wheels. And sorry some people had to trash your thread.

ok.. well im done talking about diff dyno stuff... you do you math.. ill deal with my car... and i heard that someone did do the rotas on svt.. but still the widest rotas i have found were 7.5.. i have found cobra r rims in the 4 bolt pattern in 17x9 for the street use.. now i just have to find something light and wide for the slicks...like i said im shooting for a 10 in slick and about youll break stuff..i dont launch that hard mine is all after the launch i only launch at like 3 k and i dont dump the clutch.. plus i have fabricated (well will have fabricated soon) a new bracket for the tranny for the snubber that will be truley unbreakable.. it will mount to 4 of the bolts on the tranny coming all the way around to the front of the tranny and still leaves the stock tranny mount bracket in place and mounts to the k memeber.... but neways as soon as i let out of the clutch all the way and pin the throttle it spins 1st 2nd and 3rd now... im hoping with slicks i can hook up all of 2nd i know 1st is pretty useless.. plus its so short i really dont care about it.. i tend to short shift it anyways... if i do that i really think i will have an 11 sec 1/4 mi car...

You will only need a 8.5 inch tire. Or a 255/60/15.
Remember a taller tire will also make you hook better

i was talking to the guy in the evo and he said he ran a 12.7 in the 1/4 with diff tires.. the tires he had in the video was drs cant remember what brand.. but he says he thinks itll run low 12s with those tires.. and i would have over taken him by the 1/4 and that was my low setting.. he only beat me by about 1-2 cars in the 1/8th... its a pretty bad azz evo.. and thanks for the comments and maybe ill try a 8.5 in slick.. but i still want some 275s for the street.. that way if i decide to hit it it doesnt just spin them..
