Drag Pack Installed

I finally got everything I needed, mounted the tires and headed to the strip. I reduced my ET in the 1/8 by .3 of a sec in 2500 DA. Pretty happy with this set up. Tires hook solid at 18 psi.

If ultrazls1 shows up this weekend he said he'd let me test fit one. I'm sure they'll still clear, but highly doubt you'll be able to use stick on weights. Probably have to use the ones that go on the bead

Unfortunately we didn't get to meet up and test fit them.
If anyone in near grand rapids has a set of skinnies and would like to meet up we could still try to test fit some.

If you haven't tried yet. 17s do fit. I made a thread because I couldn't remember what the name of this one was at the time

FWIW it took 4 guys, 1 ratchet strap, and an act of God for one of my front bias ply Hoosiers to pop the bead and mount. The other went to a local tire shop the next morning where it took two guys and a cheetah/air cannon and it was done in seconds.

I dig the rear slicks, I don't care much for the sketchy feeling on top end I am not used to yet. Lol
