Well I've got some miles on them today, and can say they don't handle any differently on the street than the R2's. I had up to 100mph on the highway, and they feel just fine. I would assume if I took these tires on a road course, I would feel the difference at 100mph, but again for normal street use, you don't give up any noticable handling.

Again as far as traction, I'll let you know once I get the new motor in. With my current 360rwhp, I can't even really spin the R2's, let alone this Drag Radial. I'll post the update on the launch traction once I put them behind the coming 500rwhp.

I'm getting a LS2 - 402CID engine built right now. The details are in my sig. I'm hoping to put down 500rwhp, 450rwtq while maintaining smog legality. The engine will be all forged, so someday I might put a little bit of squeeze on it for the drag strip.
