We run all 1/8 mile and I wanted a 31" so we ended up with this. We talked to Hoosier, they are planning to take some weight out of this design. The nitro is going to challenge traction and the stiff sidewall is going to hurt tire growth. I felt like we at least 2 mph short last weekend.

If I don't get the car sold soon I'll start to work on the blower engine. Our season is coming to a close.
