Car is backed up with a th400 5,500 pats converter , custom built 9 inch 3.50 pro gear lightweight spool setup with TRZ front suspension with strange 4 wheel disc brake setup . running a 295/65/15 drag radial with mini tub. stock location suspension with ice man upper and lower adj control arms qa1 single adj shocks . and a hr anti roll bar installed.Car weighs 3400lb with me out of it and 3600. even with me in it. motor should be over 800hp on motor then instaling a big shot plate kit with a 200 shot on a progressive controller (edelbrock one maybe). this cars drives great around town and cruising on parkway temp runs no hotter than 185 190 in 90 plus degrees.

did a test pass on the street at our spot thats marked off for a 1/4 mile . left a 3,000 rpms , shifted 7,000 1st to 2nd 7300 2nd to 3rd went through finish line on the street at 6,800 rpm in third gear , with a final gear ratio of like 3.10. with 29.6 inch tire .car was very stable at high speed it was flying lol. waiting for new tires, window net, and 5 point harness belt , then getting it to a track rental in sept . looking for high 9's on motor is the goal . then spray it to 8's with a 200 shot . max nitrous shot i want to run on kill is 300 shot on progressive.

Be careful with those pro gears, you'll burn them up on the street. Love the build, great sleeper.

Thumbs up sleeper?

I don't know about that LOL but I LOVE IT! Totally BADASS! Reminds me of some of the FASTEST STREETCAR rides back in the early 90's where they were a little rough around the edges but take your money with a quickness.

TOO COOL!
