They are my New m/t drag radials, they are better than the Nittos! I have an ever bigger M+H coming, but I will use these up first.

Default Another test pass, made progress!!!!

Just added Santuff springs, 90 10 calverts , 50-50 rear shocks. It was cold today, spun the shit out of first gear had to feather it, but it now hooked in 2nd and 3rd when it never did. I made some good progress!!!

Maybe in the spring I can turn it up to at least 10 psi. That's 6-7 psi

It was awesome. I learned so much from you and Charlie. Thank you both for all the advise!!!!!!!! The car is bad ass at 6-7 psi, this spring 10-12 will be a blast. They salted all the roads yesterday, so I guess I'm done for a bit.
Once you go turbo you can't go back!! Just the sounds alone are fun as hell!

I will go to a track rental this spring I hope. I'll post the results, I got a little more suspension work to do.

I made a bunch of changes to the car. Now I have turbo pistons, a little head and manifold work. I have a meth kit but I will not use it yet, to many other things going on. I took the big brake kit off for a little smaller set up. I put 98-2002 trans am rotors and brakes. I am putting weld wheels on, painting them the color of the car and putting dog dishes on the car.
A guy makes brackets for them. I wanted 15's so I can put bigger tires on and loose some weight! I put 295 60 15's MT drags. I am trying to get it to hook.
12 psi felt real nice before I broke the piston. It was knocking the tires off with the 17's.
Just tonight I finally got all the bearing clearances good, and took the bottom half to get balanced.
