I have run slicks with 500 to 700 at the rear wheels, and they are always consistent and never spin.

Many have good luck with drag radials with high HP, but I always have spin at the track when running DR's. Probably driver error, but it is what it is.

Downside to slicks is changing them out at the track, but really only takes about 15 minutes to swap with a cordless impact.

I have been running slicks on my 09 R/T 6speed at the track. I have only tried 20 inch drag radials. The slicks are better by far. I'm running around 600 to the wheels.

    From my experience DR's need good track prep to hook good. Slicks will do better on a not so good track. I have had both & my 60ft is better with the slicks. I have auto with FTI 3200 stall & I use the 17in Hoosier slicks.
