Hope you will be able to fit adequate rubber to be able to use all that HP. If not most of it will be just wasted. You are going to need VERY sticky track or strip type tires to allow this to hook up. Making rear fender flares is one way to at least get some more width.

If you set this car up properly, very few will be able to touch it. It should smoke almost anything on the road or the track.

Thank you, i have currently removed the wing. I am going for more stock look. I am thinking about having the hardtop painted in car's color.

As for traction i will see and then buy a wider tire.

I dont want traction at 1st gear i dont want to hurt my drivetrain

I think my current conti 5p 255 35 18 could hook in second gear at 500 hp

Cant wait to test it
