I'd like to go to 18's, but I just bought these wheels/tires. It's always going to be a weekend toy, so I'll have to make do.

I agree your car needs tranny tuning as well, but with your current wheel/tire setup, you'll never get the power to the ground off the line like you will with smaller wheels and DR's with more sidewall, even with the tranny shift points set right.
I see your points...this was my first run with the converter and drag radials. Onc cmy tune gets sorted out im going back and see how exactly the car reacts. Until the tune is updated im just going to put this trip to the track on the back burner and start again.

Understood.

For the time being, if you haven't already, I'd make it a priority to look into a transmission cooler. The transmission temps in our 6L80 L99's can easily get over 200*. This is ok with the stock TC, but no good at all for a stalled one.
