Well I got to go to the track today but man there was so many people there I only got to run twice. I still have to work on not red lighting with the new drag radial compared to steet tires!

110mph is moving for a 5000+ truck. You picked up 13mph just by putting on drag radials? What size are they? Where you at IFO at NPR? I was there for an hour but felt like **** after stepping off Bourbon street at 4:30 am, so we left early to head back to Shreveport. Guess I should have stuck around. Congrats on 12's!

The drag radials are the nt555r's from nitto 305/45/18's They hooked up good. I was impressed.

That is good to hear, as Nittos are the least sticky of the Drag Radials, with MT being at the other end of the scale. The Nittos last the longest however, so if they are giving enough bite as-is, you are golden. :tu:

Nice! The nitto's definetly last longer than Mickeys or BFG's. Are you runnng a shorter tire up front too? Thought somone else had TCS issues wth drag radials due to the smaller OD?

Yea I went and got some used tires to put on my factory rims that were the same height as the drag radials. I had no problems with anything I even left the ALSD on.

I had that problem, but I was running a 4" shorter tire in the back than the front. TCS Goes crazy if not turned off.

That's what I thought I was doing. Maybe I have to let the 3rd light light up for a half a second before letting my foot off the brake.:D
