Thinking for the street, AWD would be fun, and unique.

Hmm....

I have no issues hooking on the street with ~450 horse and drag radials (bias ply) in a RWD application. I usually 'launch' at about 3500 rpm and it sticks. However, thats about all I can do. The car is setup to go straight and get traction, once you throw a turn into the mix, its over. I'd probably go AWD if possible, power through turns, almost always hook up. You'd get the best of both worlds.
