What've you been smoking? There is no way you'll hook that tire in the cold. Don't even try that. I think you've been driving the car to long that now 850 rwhp feels like a bolt on car.


On another note. What size is that rear? Will that be your strip tire too?

Maybe I have LOL. You know enough is never enough as they say.

Yes this is my strip setup. It's a MT ET Street radial 2 305/45/18. Should hook nicely. Gonna drive on street probably with it as we'll I'm driving the wrx 90% of the time anyway. Guy I got them from us making a bit over 800 himself he put 20s with a DR back on said it sucks. He is going 17s with slicks

It'll look badass without a doubt. It'll also be a night and day difference in comparison to your 22's in regards to traction.

On a stick car this will be gd. I'm interested to see if you can hook that much power with that tire. If you can that thing will go 145 mph easy!!

You do remember how much 850 rwhp is, don't you. It ain't no joke!!

I think it'll be good as well. Probably gonna be some trial and error feeling the car out with the power and this setup. Probably more or less frustrating runs in the 10s lol. I'm sure she can go 9s with a good launch, even if its 9.99 850rwhp? Doesn't the V6 camaro come with that much???

Few more things to button over the winter by spring she'll be ready to tear it up. Maybe i'll ask Doug or Chris at ECS to drive my car. Maybe I can see my car going 9s then
