Correct. When you spin the tires it messes everything up. It'll shift in weird spots because of the sudden jump in rpm/mph. When I spin it will shoot the rpms up to 73-7400.

I just saw this Jeff, yea with your mods STOCK tires are your weak point. You need some DR's or slicks its up to you bud. A6's as stated earlier dont need too much suspension work.
Wheels and sticky tires bud. Follow the instructions from the manufacturer for your first burnout and you'll be fine.

Lol don't feel bad bud I haven't gone to the track for this same reason.....no slicks n skinnies yet lol.

I also agree that it's shifting like it is due to wheel spin bud. Don't get impatient or loose hope bud.

Do the +40mm offset. No need to go with wider wheel at this point and I am not a fan of the spacer.

You can can still fit a 305/45 on the GS wheel. Plenty of sidewall.

sent from my galaxy s3. that would explain the errors.

All you have to do on a 40mm offset is tie up the E brake cable and you are good to go!! I wouldn't do the 56mm wheels and the spacer either.

Get the 40mm offset wheels. You can run a good size tire with that. The wheels in 18" are 25 pounds each.

PSJ and I were discussing this for awhile about getting all 4 corners with those 18's.

From what we were told, they will fit just fine on the back as stated before. Up front you have to grind down the top part of your spindle i believe it was and then they will fit.

i believe it was Sux2bu was the one that has done it before.

You Pretty much need "TIRES" big time, camrojt ran mine stock well Rhino tune and ADM CAI to a nice 13.24 @ 106mph and 2 weeks ago I ran an 8.37 hooking is ok for me. Pretty sure you have a mid 11sec car if you can get it to hook

Sounds good. By this fall Im hoping to gears done ad the full drag set up.. Gotta buy a car hauler before this fall.

We need to get a group buy going on car haulers. I talked to a company that will give a pretty sweet deal on some 16ft-18ft haulers with wood or diamond plate floors and ramps. They have haulers from 900-2000.
