Have not seen 1 clean run yet!

EVERY run posted (and I've watched ALL the videos), have wheel spin on launch..
Even the schmo with the 10.85 run, didn't launch clean..

Agreed. It's not exactly easy to get a perfect launch on my current Challenger. It's definitely going to take some time to adjust to 707hp and "only" 275 width tires.

That's what is most impressive to me... that a 10.85/11.2 was ran on 275/40/20 tires with 707hp and 650 lb/ft torque.

There is a place by me that modifad the stock rims, cut and make wider, I'm thinking 10.5 inch rim and 315s tire for this car would be awesome....

I think the 10.85 was with drag radials wasn't it?

still, just a set of tires, no other mods and a 10 second car with a driver with no seat time.

Yes, 10.85 @ 126 was with drag radials. They don't specify size, so I just assumed stock size. 11.2 @ 125 was with the stock tires.

I'm guessing the guy in the 10.85 video didn't actually make that run, just video editing of the board when it was actually ran. :) Impressive no less.
