If you really get 350whp on the street you will want something sticky and wide (like your boyfriend's ****) up front so you can stop in a hurry.

If you do not plan to do any dragstrip use, I would probably steer clear of the drag radials. They will not hook much better than a really good high performance tire unless you heat them up. (I am speculating)

As far as all weather traction, I personally would not drive my high horsepower, pride and joy hot rod, unless the weather was ideal. I would think you would want a tire that has no compromise performance for when you drive it, the way you drive it.

Surely this is not your only vehicle. Is it?

3.6 rear with rx7 clutch diff attached to a 6 speed.

I'm going with a dual setting MBC for boost control with a WI failsafe to drop to low boost. Spark by gear does sound interesting. I had the Hydra EBC working with 2.5 but have not tried it with 2.6. Maybe I should so I can do boost by gear. Or maybe a serial EBC/MBC boost control setup. Urgh
