Forgot to add A&A SI, that's why I posted here. Thanks everyone and yes it is fun. I've never been that fast before. It is intense even hooking at 3k rpm and to me almost felt violent lol. I can see how **** would break. After I got the 10 I was like I'm done, I'm not breaking anything, I'm driving this car home tonight. But very addicting, very thrilling.

Nicely done! And that MPH is solid too. 10.99 is my goal on my 19" NT05R's before putting the slicks on. First pass I went 11.30 @137.7 rolling off the line (2.18 60' lol) and not spraying until top of 2nd. 2nd pass I launched a bit harder and sprayed in 1st and it was hooking and then snapped the main shaft. Upgraded and have only rolled raced it since But I need to get back out there.

Let us know how those 19s work out. Might dd some nt05r and bonus if you can pull off a 10!

Mickey Thompson doesnt make the 2611.5r16 ET street that I bought 11 years ago. A half *** search came up with the Hoosiers and they worked out well so that's good.

I've been running the NT05R's on my 19" daily setup for about a year now and they hook pretty well on the street. I should note that they are 345 wide since I have the wide rear fenders. I have a progressive nitrous controller so that helps, but on a decent road if I roll into it as long as it isn't too cold out it'll hook 2nd gear towards the top of 2nd. On the track I've done a number of 40mph roll race events and I ramp the nitrous in pretty quick after that hit and the car hooks up pretty well. They seem to be a pretty good "daily driver" tire at this power level. I have R888's on my other car and those are awesome for the street as well.
