I am just doing some rough estimating that wheels will run around 250 a piece and drag radials are also aprrox. 250 a piece. so add that up it's about a grand for the rear wheel tire combo alone.

This is going to sound pretty crazy, but as of today Ill only have around $650 in performance parts and I plan to run a 13.6/13.7. I also went a bit high end in that $650, it could be done theoretically for about $300.

And yeah for me its just a hobby but I do take my hobbies seriously so if I can break some records in the process thats cool and if not I had run regardless. I need another set of rims anywhere for winter up here in NY so if I can get radials for cheap or something I might as well put them on the second set.
Good luck. Be sure to post those time slips.

About right. I paid $946 for a set mounted and balanced shipped to my door.

rtcat your car is auto correct? and those are 19s or 20s?


Btw after today I can tell you that the stock fuel map seems to be kind of conservative, not much backfire at all. The car runs lean.

Really. I thought people had found that it ran rich.......

Auto and 19's

Are you using a dyno to verify the numbers when playing with the fuel mixture............becasue the GREAT one (SCRMNG) found thru his research and PLENTY of dyno time that this engine like to run rich, and hot but likes to ingeste cold air. It does not react like any other engine that has been played with.

Be careful.

Hrrmmm...its been a common understanding here that the LLT likes to run rich.

I thought the OE19s were just a bit taller than the 20s. Do you know how tall GTOs DRs are?

I know you'll be in the mix for sure. Your car is built for all kinds of racing.

I only know a straight line.

Sorry to the OP for the jack... just one more... I promise.

I built one pretty much just like this in the 70s. My only real straight line car...

Ah guess Im wrong then. My car barely backfires but I guess that doesnt necessarily mean its running lean. The dyno will tell.

Actually had a set back and ruined one of the parts I ordered =[ Eta is now about two weeks until I'll post up my short list of mods and hopefully some nice dyno charts.

so whats the fastest m6 time on the track?
To be quite honest, Ive never been down a track. I missed the last track meet, but im pretty nervous about going down the track :(. Seen to many vids of people loosing it with stock cars.
If anyone knows, whats the best rpm to launch the m6v6 to minimize wheel spin?
