    I've only had my 2013 for a week but I plan on taking it to the drag strip in the coming weeks. After reading over some of the NHRA safety rules I'm curious what some of you guys have had to do to run at the track. As these cars stock are in the mid 11's with a few mods your breaking into the 10's. Also what is the best wheel and tire combo for the track that fit stock breaks?

    Safety rules and enforcement vary by track. Plan on having a proper helmet handy. As far as fitting a wheel over the stock brakes, smallest you can go is a 17in wheel in back without messing with the brakes. If you do a search on here or even google, you can find plenty of good info on the wheel/tire combo that's right for you. Also, i believe Billet Pro Shop posted a thread recently about a smaller rear brake kit they will be offering if you feel the need for less wheel and more tire.
