It just amazes me that people dump $10k to make 700rwhp then run stock tires. I ran against a ECS blown Camaro in my basically stock 2012 mustang and killed it every time because he was on stock tires. Sad to spend $10k and lose to a mustang with a $200 intake. For the love of god, buy tires if you are going forced induction.

Haha I think I know what car you are talking about too. Drag radials are one of the first things I buy when modding.

this, I put bushings and a good tire and wheel and my car hooks just fine.

Very true.

So true, I started drag racing my car on the test and tune nights just because there is strip 5 miles from my house. I learned very quickly that a drag radial was good for more than 1 full second on a high horsepower car. I have had my car at the road racing venues on both the stock tires and the racing tires. Night and day difference, about 12 seconds a lap on my track because you can carry so much more speed through the corners, and brake later. If you actually pair up against a good car with a performance tire and you are running street tires, you will get spanked even though you have 100+ more horsepower.

It sounds like you have a 315 street tire. If you put any drag radial on the car it may spin a little but not much. If you are in a racing environment where you need the car to hook up, you need a drag tire. You can buy a drag radial that is dot legal. It will go straight ahead great but he sidewall is too soft for good cornering. If you run for time, you need an appropriate racing grade tire, period.

A 275 or even a 255 drag radial will outperform a 315-345 street tire.

Absolutely, it's all about the rubber compound.

Front mount 600hp is easier to hook than 600hp top mount or turbo.

Depends on the turbo and boost controller. Turbo has the easiest boost control and you can make 450rwhp to 30mph, then 550 to 45mph, then 650-700 from 65+ or setup a boost controller for whatever you want. That is much easier to hook than full 600+ all the time. So saying front mount (centri?) is easier to hook is a bit too simple of a statement. You could have a turbo act just like a centri if you wanted with a boost controller.

A would agree and the turbo boost controller does affect it but it is mainly a function of the the top and turbo systems making a lot more torque at the bottom half of the rpm range.
