Lol, then just divide by 10, then it sounds alright. My Ziex's are 205's on the front on stock R/T rims. Ghey Goodyears on back are like 175, they look tiny you can tell the difference.

I never been to the track but I can launch on the street. My cousin took my car to the track last time. He snapped the axle on launch im sure he lauched like he launchs his civic (5 grand) I told him about 3. So I guess about 3-3.5?
