So, with my power, hooking on Mexican streets has become an issue somewhat. I'm curious to what people are running for the big power cars to hook decently on a non prepped surface? For now I have some 295/45/17s et streets on c5z06 fronts to play at the track, and when the prep is right I haven't had any traction issues. I've yet to really mess with them on the street.
I'm curious as to do I need to go ahead and say screw it and drop the money for a full pfadt coilover + sway bar setup, or will something like some DRMs on all 4 corners do? I'll be doing some test hits in Mexico on around 22-24 psi and giving a quick spin to get some heat to them to see how they do for roll runs, and perhaps a small burnout for dig runs.
Normally I'm a track guy, but... when in Mexico...
I just think that would be way too tall with 3.42 gears, but with this torque curve, maybe not.
Yea, you're probably right on the edge of having the power to justify the 28" tire. You might be able to get that 295 to work on the street, or even one of the smaller diameter hoosiers. If it doesn't slow you down too much, the M&H will put the power down though.
