    I have not, but I keep getting told that so as soon as I use these up I will be getting a bias ply. I plan to grab a set of the CTS 18x4 spare wheels and putting a bias ply front runner on those to match. People talking about the car wiggling on the top end with a bias ply sketched me out so I went with a DR when I ordered these lol

    That's the plan, keep creeping the 2-step up until it doesn't bog and then have the nitrous hit right after it has hooked up.

    From the research Iíve done
    Bias Ply F/R = Good but be careful on the big end
    Bias Ply R with a Skinny Radial F = People get away with it
    Bias Ply F with a Radial R = Crash

    Disclaimer, no personal evidence to support any of the research besides 500whp + stick + DRís = My launching skillset isnít up to par.

    Do you trailer or drive youíre car to the track?
    Have you researched a clutch tamer?

    Drive it to the track right now. I have not but am looking at them now.

    I have looked into this which seems like it might be the same idea.

    Turn the 2 step off and try launching At the same rpm
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    The build took a little turn this winter/spring. No more nitrous any more, put on a VS Racing billet wheel 78/75. Running it on E85 with meth for cooling for now until i put a A/W intercooler on it eventually. Going to put a 8.50 cage in it before I do the IC as it doesn't have any cage currently. Running on Holley Terminator X now too. New clutch going in this weekend then a tune and hopefully some 9s this year lol
