Default Pleasantly surprised!

:o I have never had a car that would spin both tires at only half throttle off the line. I got my girl out of the shop on Thursday and finally found an open empty warehouse pking lot (that I thought was out of the way) and got a feel for the new tranny. Needless to say I will not be doing that again unless I have some different tires. I am not gonna ruin a great set of michelins by just playing around. What kind of tires has anybody else used when they went to the strip?
