Well I have a 2wd truck and I cannot luanch and leave like I could in my old 4x4 7.3, does anybody make slicks that would fit my 17" wheels, and also if I had a good set of slicks would I be able to build my boost up and launch like I used to in my 4wd. The only time I took my truck to our local 1/8 th mile track I was running a 9.5 and that was feathering it leaving so it wouldn't spin, if I tried to launch it would spin till I let off of it.

2006 F250 2wd 6.0 psd, 8.96 1/8th mile with canned SCT tunes, now running Spartan Hybrid Race tune! AFE Stage 2 PRO DRY S, 4" turbo back str8 pipe in front of rear tire, auto, crew cab short bed, ZOO DAD mod, 5% tint over the factory tint.
Track Times!
60 ft-------1.892
594 ft------8.370
1/8th ET---8.965
1/8th MPH--75.63
