Get a 3600-4000 stall some 305 Mickey t's and you'll cut 1.8 60fts all day. Tired of seeing these baby 3k stalls that are barely better than stock. No a 3600 isn't as dd friendly but get a lockup converter and you'll be fine you can thank me later.
Just gonna have to agree to disagree on this one.
Personally I don't use street tires for track use. Bad things happen to nice vehicles when caught in the rain on bald or near bald tires.
Having a set of dedicated tires is the only way to go IMHO , having said that the tires you mentioned are about the same or more than a set of slicks.
Too each their own and I agree that drag radials are fine for most....
As far as torque converters go I can't speak to their use in a Ram but I run a 4200rpm stall in my street summer beast with no issues as far as driveabilityl and my father runs a 5500rpm stall in his toy..
In other words... Your preaching to the choir lol
Sorry for the thread jack was just trying to help
