Anyway, so these DOT street tires are easy to get, easy to mount, easy to balance, inexpensive, look good, long life span, smooth ride and the transmission comes back to the trailer under 150 degrees high gear only, leaving 2000 rpm's in low gear for 1 tenth of a second.

Moving the leave rpm from 3000 to 2000 made em consistent. I still have a bunch left to tweak, but I can tell they're gonna be killer.

All I'm lacking is Chevrolet ralley wheels.

Yes, the Cocoa Beach Kid Camaro. I knew that race would be a battle royal.

I was up to 23.5 psi, the higher I went the better.

It's definitely black tracking the tires.

6.80 around 110 mph Super Pro bracket racing.

High gear only, 8" wide DOT street tire tread.

Finally got to work with the new street tires, gear and TSI BCRCXLS converter.

Mickey Thompson ET Street S/S.

I can get them next day, free delivery on Amazon.

They're so small, they come in boxes.

Easy to mount & balance. Car rides like a Cadillac CT5-V.

Inexpensive.
