Jason,

our latest build is a fast brackets, center steer altered. The package will weigh 1550 - 1600 with driver. Powered by aluminum block, aluminum head 420 ci SBC. Engine will make about 900 - 920 horsepower.

Expected performance is 4.50 - 4.55 et 1/8 mile.

The altered is fully suspended, strut front, four link rear.

Please let me know your tire suggestion. "Generally" we race on good tracks. I will also consider a radial tire.

Please post some pics of that center steer bad boy. I am currently building a center steer old school nova with an altered wheelbase. I thought I was the only one.
I know yours will be much faster, sleeker, cooler, etc. but here's a link to my Ugly Betty.

Well... for a fast bracket car, we need to keep consistency in mind. That said, leaning towards a bigger tire would help. A lightweight small block car, will suffer from going too big.

That said, I would consider the following:

3074ST - 32.0/14.0-15S on a 15" or 16" wide wheel - Baseline - this would be the quickest tire.
3074S - 32.0/14.0-15S on a 15" or 16" wide wheel - more "forgiving" than above.
30771 - 32.0/16.0-16S on a 16" wide wheel - more "forgiving" than all above.
3084S - 33.0/16.5-15S on a 16" wide wheel - more "forgiving" than all of the above.

These are all "safe bets" and as you go down the list, they will be less dependent on the tune-up and racetrack to be consistent.

Now if it were mine, and I like to "tinker" on my stuff, I'd throw some 33.0/10.5-15W's and let it fly! It would just require staying on top of things more to make it fast AND consistent. I also like being a little different :rolleyes:

Thanks,

Jason Moulton
