      ive been drag racing for a while now but am actually going to designate a car for it, i am running a mk3 jetta vr6 glx full interior, with mk4 headgasket, c2 chip, 2.9 clone, lw pullys, autotech flywheel, factory trans with 3.39 r&p and a lsd. ill be running rota slipstream since they are a fairly cheap light wheel and am thinking of running mt et streets with that setup i was going to run 205/50/15's but i see alot of people run a 225/50/15 im thinking with the taller r&p the smaller tire would be bettercan some of the vw drag pro's chim in here thanks and as soon as the snow goes and the track opens ill start posting some time slips

      Ever thought of running a dedicated set of wheels with slicks for the track? 22" or 23" M&H can be tucked under the fenders nicely... alot easier on the dravetrain parts than drag radials...

      I thought of the same thing before when I was looking for tires 3 years ago... so I bought the MT et streets 205/50 for my vrt jetta (~350hp) used that for a year racing on the street and track... then upgraded to the 225/50 et streets after as the 205 was a little small for the power, I only use these on the street now and have a dedicated set of slicks for the track... much better 60' time and better feeling off the line...

      for the class im running i cant have full slicks thats why i wanted to do a really soft dot tire, were my car is all motor and a lower r&p i was thinking that the 205-50 would be good im not sure if the 225-50 would rob to much power not having a lower geared r&p

      ahhh well if you are running in a certain class the MT et streets are your best bet... 205/50 should be good enough...

      what is your trap speed and what gear are you in when you cross the 1/4?

      haven't even ran this car yet waiting for snow to go and the track to open just getting this thing built up and ready to go, i have a set of 3.67 r&p i might throw in i think that would be a little better

      fast vr6...

      You were paid by PayPal on 02/16 $200 for the Techtonics stainless catback.

      After waiting for it to arrive, I PMed on when the catback had not arrived.

      You responded on 03/04 that you were refunding the money the next day because the catback had been stolen while it was standing up along your garage.

      Why wasn't the money immediately Refunded back in February when you got it, OR why wasn't the catback shipped before it was stolen?

      Why wasn't the money Refunded when you said it would be Refunded. As soon as you send a Refund by PayPal, a message is send to the person receiving the Refund by PayPal to announce that the Refund is coming. IT DOES NOT TAKE 3-5 DAYS FOR PAYPAL TO INFORM THE ORIGINAL SENDER THAT A REFUND IS COMING.

      Even if it did take PayPal 3-5 days to send a Refund Announcement (like you now claim) that would have happened close to two weeks ago, if you made the Refund on 03/05 like you said you would.

      And why haven't responded to my inquires about the Refund since 03/04, if you made the Refund on 03/05?

      Could have have something to do with the FACT THAT A CLAIM HAS BEEN MADE WITH PAYPAL EARLIER THIS WEEK?
