Lil Help for Lil Sleeper

MODS, this isn't intended to be serious(), but if someone steps up and helps me out, I'll take the offer...

This may not be permitted, but I need to rent or borrow some 18 inch wheels and tires for my runs in Chandler... I see so many peeps getting drag radials, I'm feeling the need for some serious rubber to back up my build in case I can't get any wheels and tires by then...

Tire Sponsors wanted... I'm still trying to find some 18 inch vette wheels and then I'll worry about rubber...

Dont want to break thee diff or driveshaft...

well they are installing 1400 hp rated axles, and a 1400 ft/lb clutch to spin up the 850 plus HP we are hoping for... so the diff drive shaft and transmission are the weakest links... I figure the DS or the diff will give up first...

You not going to run "BLUE RUSH" at CFII ? You don't have to go balls out and do any damage, but you can flex "BLUE RUSH" muscles a little.

I ran V1 on 22's, street tires at the Firebird Raceway
