If you don't mind me asking, why are you getting rid of the 4.11s? Are you going with a lower gear or a higher gear?
While I'm asking questions, how do you like those Mickey Thompson ET Streets? Do they hook very well? My buddy is running a set of them on his 454 Camaro and he loves them...which is why I'm considering running them on my 'Vette.
I've made some rough calculations and with my 28" tall slicks i'll need a lower gear (larger numerically) to be closer to redline as I cross the finish line. The 4.56's should be here real soon.
Actually Bence, the slicks I have are M/T ET Drags. There basically the same wrinkle wall slick as an ET Street but they have no tread and are made of a softer L8 compound as opposed to the M5 compound in the ET Street tire. I wish I could tell you how they work but I can't because I haven't used them yet. All the race guys around where I live use the ET Streets but I bought the ET Drags brand new at a swap meet for an unbeleivable price. I don't think you'll be sorry with the slicks on your Corvette, but (here's a mispelling) inevitebly something is going to break if you hook up your projected amount of torque on a regular basis. Or you'll won't and you'll wonder why stuff isn't braking :lol: anyway, I wish you the best of luck on your project. I wish I could be going at the same rate as you!! :)
