Drag radials and 4 speed?

Anyone out there using drag radials and 4 speed, how does it work for you?
Based on what Ive been reading they only work with automatic cars. Im not looking to set any land speed records but would like a sticky tire that i can drive on the street as well as the track. My launches would be between 3,000 to 3,500 rpm. Thanks

As far as not working with stick shift trans, there sure are a lot of heads-up drag cars with stick shifts running frighteningly fast on Drag radials, 170 mph in the 1/4 mile. It's all in the shock and traction package, regardless of the type of trans. Don't bolt them on an expect miracles if your suspension isn't up to the job, same as with any sticky tire.

Thanks this will be driven mostly on the street but will see some track time. Im gonna box the lower control arms run poly bushings and mount the rear control arms lower on the axle housing. Im guessing they will work for my mild setup
