Been looking at one. Curious regarding the features - how the transbrake and line lock work, the shifter, different settings you can dial in. The factory supplied drag radials - are they a compromise in any way vs say a Hoosier or some other brand? What's it like driving in the rain with those tires? Do you have a spare set of wheels with regular street tires, and if so, what factory wheel will fit given the calipers that are on it? Going thru the thngs in my mind what it might take to make one liveable as a commuter and occasional strip toy.

The transbrake does not work like a regular one. If you don't follow the steps listed on center dash display you go into limp mode not enough time to set while stageing. But the line lock works very well easy to set and use there is also a launch control that you can set RMP leave from 2500 to 4500 i believe.18 inch rims fit over the regular brembos if you get the larger ones you may need to go to 19 or 20 inch. There is a company that sells a look a like rim without the knurling, M392 wheel, cheaper than buying factory i have a set with street radials on for everyday use. Drag mode makes the car come alive on track my best is listed in signature. I also have a set of 18 inch Bravado with 305 MT Street Drag Radials and a set of front runners.

Last month I watched a guy run one 6 rds in Pro. Same 11.72 dial all day. He hit a .037 light against me. I talked to him he said it was all box stock.

Are trans brakes legal in "no electronics" classes, or does it vary from track to track?


An unskilled person with a "cool idea", a bunch of porting tools, and a set of cylinder heads is a sure recipe for disaster.
I AM that person!

No box trans Class brakes are Ok
Foot brake Class not legal
That’s the way it is usually done around here. Some tracks will have both classes.
