Well its track season again here. I have a set of DRs available for me to use once I go, but my question is with my completely stock rear (3.27s,axles,ect.) do I run the risk of snapping something or something along those lines?

My rear end is all stock and i have DR's. only been to the track with them once and i kept it to about 2500rpms just because of what ppl have said about dr's breaking the stock rear.

dead hooking is what kills an axle. you wanna keep the rpms high so you get slight spin (2-3 turns of the tire) then hook. that'll get ya the best et and won't risk breakage.

If you're really worried about breaking axles, just pick up a set of mosers from summit for 230+ bucks and throw them in. It's a really easy install and will give ya some piece of mind.

i'd say 12 would be the lowest for a drag radial tire. just make some passes and keep adjusting the pressure until you find what works best with your car.
