Well, if I get new tires.. may aswell get rims the size I want.. 19". Granted I find a 19 that I like that weighs the same or less than the heavy arse stockers.

Doesn't suck to be you for sure, don't rub it in! If I lived that close I'd be out there about every other weekend and driving some "R" compound tires for sure

I'm confused.. slightly larger than 18" is 19"... my stock wheels are 18", Roger. Sadly, a good mix of 19" rims available for this platofrm weight LESS than these stockers. . Styling is an A+.. but engineering is a D.

The 19's will fill the wheel wells a wee bit more, I've got the suspension for it.. might as well use it, lol. Ofcoarse this is all speculative.. god knows if I'd even have the time to find them, get them, and mount them in just over a month.

The control is often called the accelerator pedal. Drag racing is poopy anyways.

Let's see if you let off the gas pedal then you will go slower....tell me what's the point of having the power if you can't use it to it's full potential?

Not quite hector. If you're spinning and you modulate the throttle so you don't spin, you will go faster,,, though no, not as fast as you could if you just floored it.
There's no point. So modify your junk so you can use it if you want it.

Few cars, even drag cars can just go all out. They have rev limiters for launching and what not, otherwise they would do the same thing they do when they do a burnout. Good launching, chassis setup, and throttle control come into play with any vehicle with respectable power.
