The car sets the front end down right at the 60' timers and it was unloading with the A-arm front end. But now it's narrowed down to the shift and spinning.

This past weekend the car went 6.169 as it sits. 100lb added to rear. At 1.80 start pulling timing 15 degrees full out at 2.10 ramping back in full by 4.00. Shifting at 2.00. The car has been 6.04 with 50lbs and only pulling 5 degrees timing at shift so it could go high 5.90s. Removing the weight, removing weight of steel floor, carbon going back in. adding timing back, iron to aluminum center section so I’m loosing weight and don’t mind if it stays high 6.0s to low teens. Just not looking to go 6.30s or 40s with to high of gear
Any videos of it going down the track? Can your borrow a gopro and video what is happening in the rear?
Imo, you are putting a band aid on it by going to that big tire. My car runs very similar ETs, awesome sixty with low mph. There is no reason why it shouldn't work with that tire.
How old are the shocks? Were they set up for your car?

BBC 275pds additional on the nose w/more torque. It won't work. Big tires or put a sbc in it, same thing. Been there done it on 10" tires. You'd have to put 275pds ballast in the trunk, then you're going 6.30-40. Been there.

It’s getting the big tire. I already have the new cage, frame, Carbon tubs, Carbon sheet, tires and wheels, new housing, the only thing I like is the new center section and axles Plus a few small parts. Yes I hate cutting it up after owning it for 15 plus years and a 4-spped super sport car to boot but it’s always been and will always be a race car as long as I own it. Super pro gets more competitive every year with all the new gadgets coming out and the small tire is making more of of a gap to fill.

I had a big tire back half 69 Camaro buddy of mine's car 33 M/T's BBC dial'd 6teen 113mph BLP alky, I did a lot of work on. It was nasty consistent, dude could beat anyone in Super Pro.
You're dead on it. It'll be fine.
