Truth be told, I think that a rear-bumperless 245 with a diffuser would look pimp as all hell. It's on my list of "someday" items, I've got to work out the numbers on it, but... well... someday.

And those tires just won't do.

There's your <2.0 60ft for ya!

WTF is wrong w/ you guys ... you know nothing about drag racing .. if you are pulling 2.0 sec 60 fts on slicks you need to learn how to drive ... most of us here can pull 2.0 w/ street tires .... w/ slicks you are looking @ 1.5, 1.6 1.7 60 fts ... and all kinds of broken rear suspension parts


and yes doug use those slicks or i'm gonna come take them away from you

Haha, right...upgraded how? Same r&p, right? The locker might last, but the axles and r&p are still suspect under heavy torque application like a drag launch.
