Get some decent 245/255's and your problems wont be anywhere near as bad.

My EB struggled to lose traction with 200rwkw. I had heaps of lag and boost came on slowly with my setup.

Yeah, It looks like I'll have to get new wider rims when its new tire time... what a poor excuse to get 18s :)
I'm pretty confident mines going well over 200wks now, Its on 12psi now instead of 9psi, better tune, and all new ignition gear... pushes alot harder and Im off to the drags on wed night

Yep thats what I was alluding to in my previous post. I run 245's on the ED without any wheelspin most of the time. Get bigger rubber before you head out to the creek Chris because you will spin the full length of that strip. I did even on my 245's so the traction level at the WSID will be no match for your power and skinny cheese cutters (ever done a 400m power burnout before). 8-)

Does the track have more or less grip that a normal road surface? Some poeple tell me more, some say less... I might be able to get my hands on some circuit slicks, Im not too keen on spending big on tyres I will only use a few times... doesnt look like any way around it though

As I mentioned, traction is not a problem for me on the road but at the creek the thing just wheel spun like a mother. So I would say less grip at the creek than the road, alot less grip.

not real bad lag, around 2800 it starts pulling hard.
1.88 to 1.98 60fts. pretty slow of the line so no real need for mega $$$ tyres.

i think that maybe a different story with new mods.lol

going to buy some new m/t slicks tommorrow.
ive had some for 5 years and no longer able to smoke them.

That is a real good effort. What pressure you run those at? Ill be running mine again on 12th of Oct (If thats not the date its that week). I need some traction before then so a soft set of stockies on low pressure might suffice.

Why did you stick the turbo out the bonnet? I reckon it looked better as a sleeper...?
