I posted up my drag pack a couple weeks ago. Decided i needed a new daily setup that would also be good for the half mile event in Ocala later this month. Decided on these Forgestar CF5Vs in 19x10 in rear and 19x9 up front. Very lightweight and the Piano Black finish looks awesome. It's not a wheel i've seen too often. Used the OEM Goodyear fronts (265/40/19) and 305/35/19 MT ET Streets for the rear. Absolutely love it so far. Hooks up nice and looks good. Enjoy!

Very nice!

Have you looked at the rear wheel options for non drag radial tires?

In the future I wouldn't mind a different set of rims, and wouldn't mind going from the 20's to a 19 in the back.

Looks nice op but.....

Would look even more sick if you had silver wheels with the cobra badges painted silver as well so it pops. The cobra blacked out almost looks like you're trying to hide it.
Yes i know, WHO THE HELL WOULD HIDE A COBRA BADGE???

Funny you say that. I have been wanting to peel off the dip on the emblems just to change it up a bit. They've been blacked out for awhile. It looks good blacked out but you're right, my car is a bit hard to identify from a distance lol.

Very nice. When you going to get that car to the drag strip to test it out?

I ask him errrryday.

Hopefully it will get some passes before too long, so he can have some ET's....before he becomes too much of a waxer. ;)

LMFAO!!! I'm a pretty big waxer already. Plan is to keep her healthy and ready for the half mile with this setup. Then after that i'll definitely get some 1/4 seat time in. Lord knows i need it!

Speaking of waxing, I bet more people like the looks of your drag pack.

I'm in the minority. I don't like it. The car is so blacked out that nothing really pops about it

Don't get me wrong. I get a hard on for 13-14 GT 5Handos whenever I see them, and you car still looks good, but I dont think it looks ITS BEST.

OP, what did you do with your stock brakes?
I'm guessing you switched to a drag brake setup to fit smaller ones in the front.

They're sitting in my garage. And yes, used smaller brakes to fit the drag pack.

I kind of agree actually. I took serpents earlier advice and removed the plastidip on the emblems. Looks way better. I'll upload pics tonight.
