Okay i just picked me up a set of MICKY'S ET SLICKS{26x10x15}with two diamond black steel rims 5x4.5 im popping out my shaft 50-70 pounds right there lol...It sucks losing 20% of your horse power due to the AWD..Im planning on going friday Hoping to shave off some time any guess guys..13.5 is what truck runs 3 out of 5 passes????

those steel wheels are going to offset the gains you get, Shawn....

not to mention the suspension is not setup to hook up in 2wd

I'm guessing you'll drop .2 of a second. Better get some practice before hitting the strip for the first time in 2wd mode. Truck will launch and drive very different. Also,try not to freak out at the top end of the track when the back end of the truck starts to sway side to side. Took me a few runs to relax and not try to correct it when this starts. Running on soft-sidewalled slicks takes some getting used to.

Wow thats good to know for real thanks !!! Truck will hook if a 700hp RX-7 hooked on these tires i know my 380HP can hook lol....i can always change the rims to some stock ZJ 15inch rims or a lighter weight 15x8

Are you still running the 44A in the rear? Do you think it'll hold up?
