How much air pressure did you have in your rear tires? You may want to get a set of 17" rims and some drag radials if you plan on going to the track often.

Yeah just wondering about that.

Get rid of those 20's.I have some stock bullit 17" if you want to get a couple and buy some drag radials.

Are you running a SaleenSC? What type of HP?

Our cars have a tendency to fishtail but when you are aware of it its easy to control it. You are now aware! No need to ease up on the gas either. I have an auto too and I floor it and steer out of any lateral deviation unless it gets to far out, then you should ease up. And like everyone has said, practice practice, practice.
Even this guy fishtails but as you can see he controls it. [sm=gears.gif] Good luck.

et streets are by far the best but drag radials hook descent and drive great. I bet your adrenaline was pumping. good luck next time, first time is always tuffbut it was a nice show.
