I'm pretty sure the drag radials on the new Dodge Demon are street legal. The only tires that car swaps for drags are the fronts: street tires for doughnuts. Maybe whatever is legal on the Dodge is available in a size that will fit the SL55. Or, this:
Safe and legal are completely different things,
a tire rated with 0-B-B is a far cry from Michelin A/S 500-A-AA I currently run.
The track is 80 miles away from home, and this is a 160 mile trip I sure dont want to take on drag radial, specially if it rains suddenly.
To put in prospective: Temp was 93 last Friday, and 55 Monday, and it rained in between. sometimes these changes happen even faster, in a matter of hours
Once again, I am modifying the car to make it the fastest Mercedes, while keeping it a Mercedes, not the fastest purpose built dragster, following the RennTech moto: "performance without compromise"
I will be playing with low temp cooling system for a while, before modifying tires
PS: hellcat and demon, literally as the name suggests (no offence to anybody) is a car for idiots, and cannot be used as reference. Bold statement you may say, but any car that has a merketing team bragging about its ability to "pop-wheelies" from factory, is targeting audience with low IQ, and rather disregard to their life and responsibilities in it...
What they say: "Our car guaranteed to pop wheelies from factory... wowwww"
What I hear: "Our cars are so under engineered, and their body is so over powered, and packed with brute power without any regards to your safety or controllability, that its guaranteed to lose all steering ability under hard acceleration, if one tire hooks, and the other doesn't for whatever freak reason, you're going straight into the median, or the other car... enjoy the accident, courtesy of our lazy engineers"
