    Yes indeed.
    My 17x 390 M&H Drag Radials are too low. The 4.56s turn into 4.88s. The worst part is because the rear tire is turning so much faster than the front, the ABS signals the tranny to shift. Nothing like winding out 2nd gear only to have it immediately jump to overdrive-lockup. Still went 111 because it thinks its a diesel sometimes. The best/worst part is it seems to shift like that when it feels like it.
    A proper sized (equal) front and rear should put it to rest.

    I'd be happy with something approaching a mid 11.

    NO,

    I absolutely do not want a 6-speed manual. :)

    So are you thinking about selling the 17" rims? I just called Bogart today. I am a getting ready to buy 17s for the rear and 18s for the front. For drag strip use. I have 4:10 gear in the 04.

    No, I bought some new drag radials instead as mine were 11 years old and wooden.
    I went to a 20" wheel up front with a directional radial tire the same OD as the M&H Drag Radials.

    No funky auto-shifting issues now. :)
