Ya right spirals....cool...

I would do that to the center caps but they aren't allowed to be on the wheels during the drag races.

Of course they could be lighter.......If I had ordered new ones for $900 each they would have been forged aluminum, lighter still.

These weigh a hefty 22 lbs each but the price was right.

They are 16" instead of my 17"ers, so they are lighter and have less rotating mass than my chrome swoops.

16'* are the smallest rims you can use right b/c of brakes? I think Grand Prix torquestars would be the lightest... But I do understand the $$ for weight issue,

GP torquestarts are VERY light. But everyone on clubgp knows this and they go for high $. I believe my dad paid like $125 a pair and that was a good deal IIRC. When I weighed them with a bathroom scale they were 14lbs., but I think they might be more than that.

When working with ET Drag Radials use 1 psi adjustments to see change.
A radial will perform quicker the more air you can run.
The burn out should begin once the rear tires are completely out of the water box.
