    Getting ready to purchase a new set. I've heard nothing but good reviews about the Hoosiers other than a short life span. The New ET Pros seem to be a good choice as well. Looking for some opinions. Car is ~3700 w/ me, Cal Tracs, and split mono leafs with adjustable rears, auto, Whipple Blower, 3.70 gear 9", 610rwhp/670 rwtq. These tires will be strictly track use only. 275/60/15.

    As far as I've seen an read the new MT ET Pros would be my choice for a drag radial with the Hoosier a very close 2nd

    Hoosiers have a very little lifespan. I wore a god damn set on the street testing from Mon-Friday! Had to order another set on the Wed so I would be able to get to the track that Sat!

    M/T has served me well. Went 9.4X @ 144+ on 17" D/R

    I haven't even heard of ET Pros. Are they MTs version of the track only DR ? AS in the no tread type? With a properly set up suspension, the MT drag radial (the one you can run on the street) will hook some amazingly fast cars. Cars with a lot more power than you are putting down at the current boost level AND you don't have to change back and forth. They drive very well on the street with 30 lbs of pressure. Air them down to 16-18 at the track and hook hard!
    What size rear brakes are you running? If you can clear a 15" wheel you would be golden with a set of MT street DRs. If you are stuck running a 17" wheel, the track only DRs or slicks are a better choice, IMO.

    I have the Wilwood's on the rear..can't remember the diameter (too many numbers in my head).

    But a 15" will fit, no issue. Knew I was going to take this car to the strip and sidewall would be my friend.
