Default Stall question

I'm looking at some different converters as I want to get my car to stop pulling on the brakes. I'm thinking something like a 2800 (if thats a loose enough converter) since its a street car, and I don't plan on going to the track more than once or twice.

Not really sure what my options are for stickier rear tires, but as it is I already spin too easily so I'm not sure if a bigger converter would even be advantageous for me.

Anyway let me know what you all think

And I have 3.23 gears btw

Nitto tires are awesome, The NT555R is a really good tire, But if you want crazy grip, the NT05R is a pretty serious Street/mostly strip radial, I wouldnt recommend it for street use, but the NT555R should give you the perfect balance between a good street tire, and nice grip at the track. As for a stall, im not sure on that one.

Nittos if they are run right hook just fine at the track with an auto stalled and driven right.

And all I can say is a yank ss3200 drives like stock on Last Of A Breeds trans am! But wen you matted it she opened up

Hmmm sounds like I can't go wrong with an ss3200, and how are those nittos around corners? There are plenty of windy roads around here I like to take the car down once in a while.
