Rear Grip - What parts to buy etc

I have put a stage 2+ bootmod3 tune on my F13 M6 Coupe and would like to know what suggestions anyone has to keep the beast sticking on the road, moreso from a straight line pojnt of view. I heard that PS4S are are start but what else? Bushes etc?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts

315/30/20 drag radials. Either Nitto NT01 or the Toyo R888R.

Running the suspension in comfort will help slightly by allowing a bit more weight transfer to the back on the initial kick but I doubt there will be much in the way of mods that will help.

You could consider Pilot Sport Cup 2, NT01 or R888 for summer but in winter the PS4S will probably be the best option. I'm semi thinking of getting another set of wheels to alternate between PSC2 and PS4S between the seasons.

Super sticky tires = more strain on that clutch. Be careful as the drivetrain and clutch cannot handle it. A little rear slip saves your drivetrain

Been running drag radials on multiple cars, on the M6 stage 2 for 30k miles, no issues. Being a skilled driver while knowing how to properly control a turbocharged torque monster plays a significant role
