I'm gonna try the Vreds next before going to a drag radial.
I agree. I put the NT 05 on my car just to put around on. One sat I took the car out with sunny skies and no rain in the forecast. A few hrs later it was down pouring and the driving was white knuckled. Had to drive like an eggs was underneath the throttle. Pretty sketchy.

Scary as hell isn't it? I keep saying it felt like I was driving a boat at around 45mph. I could literally feel all 4 corners picking up. When I got to where I was going I was shaking and looked like I needed a shower from sweating so much. Never again.

I couldn't imagine trying the DR version of these things if they're any worse than the street tires.
