I mean the car pulled like HELL when i FINALLY hooked I saw 96mph trap speed a couple of times and that was only really hooking up in like the top end of 3rd and up I can def see me getting into the 13s but traction is a major issue obviously..................time for some tires

ok what would recommend other than D/R becuase they are nice and all but I will need some tires before long anyway for daily driving. but i guess i could always get some of those on the side for just track purposes.

get 2 16" rims with drag radials and just get good all season performance tires for your 17s man. just swap off the front 2 when you wanna go out to the strip or pouncin on the street. sound like a plan?

hey, there's 2 svt contour rims in usable shape on ebay for 25 bucks + shipping with 2 days left on the auction. item # 8041801432. check it out, could be exactly what you need for the drag radials if you don't have any 16" rims yet. the bfg drag radials don't seem to come in 16" though. good luck dude.
