Now he aint the best driver but hes a fairly decent one. The track we run at sucks though. ive seen stock ones go around 14.4-15.2 @94-98 depending if they were 03 or 04.
    I run 13.0 or lower at 116 to 120 mph all day on street tires

    Stage 3r turbo though.

    But: I have MOPAR Stage 3 coilovers which are 3 way adjustable, Hotchkis swaybars, Complete prothane bushings kit, and some DC strut mounts (nominal effect) as well as 15 lb SSR GT2 racing wheels and Michelin Pilots 225 45 ZR 17.

    I am not sure you would have a chance in a slalom. Car pulls documented 0.96 g and the new prothane bushings give predictability to the road surface. This car can rally race, especially when the camber is dailed to 1.5 negative in the front and 0.5 negative rear and I can corner (15 degrees) at 80 mph. MOPAR has marketed well with their suspension upgrades. Don't underestimate.

    What do you mean "BUT"? You added a bunch of handling mods, you are stage 3, what did you expect?

    Rally Race? On dirt????

    I always find it amusing when people feel the need to list what kind of plugs they're using in their sig. Sounds like a very quick car though, slowSRT.

    Would this be the $125/piece KDW2 BF Goodrich's?

    According to MOPAR engineers, the tires would probably be the first thing that was changed out.. The BFGs have greater longevity, but have less stick than several other brands of tire available. It's actually better to switch to a lighter rim and wider tire. As AWD owners know, it is more about traction than power necessarily.

    I have gone to the Michelin Pilot 225 45...big difference.
