I am pretty much in agreement.
To me Pro-street is a street (some would say questionable) drivable drag car.
Huge meats, usually drag radials, cage, monster engine, back halved etc
The "Modern" pro-street cars (and I know this is a bad generalisation) are mostly PT cars with huge rear tyres. That is they are LSx/T56 based, usually no cage (not always but usually), not really designed for drag strip use. Here is an example (not my car)
Now this will sound wierd, but I like both styles yet don't consider my car to be either. It is not PS and it is not PT, but it is inbetween
4 Link rear
324 x 45 series M&H Drag Radial
632 BBC (crate motor at this stage, will be blown later)
9" rear with 35 spline with a Detriot locker
AME Front clip
330mm discs allround
coilovers all round
17" rims all round
Car still very much in build stage (here is a pic)
I agree we need a better name for mostly PT based cars that have massive rear wheels.
Having said that I have seen some outstanding PS car that run 20's. Is it practical down the strip and do they drag em with the 20's? No they usually swap em for a tyre with a larger sidewall. The 20's and rubber bands are for looks on the street.
