You guys that run 10.5 have more guts than I do,I have done a lot of body work on guys cars that run 10.5 tires after they became friendly with the wall,I run 32x14x15 and I like that size just fine...lol

To me drag racing is going from point A to point B as fast as you can not seeing if you can go the distance without spinning the tires.If you like sliding around maybe you should get into DRIFTING instead...LOL

yup I guess we do have the same combination,I used to love street racing and was pretty good at it but with friends getting killed and other guys losing their licence plus getting older I kind of decided to do it at the track instead of on the street.Now my car is street legal and once in a great while I will take it out and play but the cops in this town are every where.
