My last run I had HORRIBLE wheel hop and fishtailed all the way into 3rd. I def want to go to the dragstrip again and learn how to lauch. Only improvement from a 12.559!
Last word on the new build: Engine shipped out last week and should be arriving at the shop sometime this week. Turbo kit should be shipping out this week. I'll be going with an Exedy clutch, not sure of the specs but Luke said it'll withstand the power I want!
Fnially decided on a finish for the rims. I need to take pics of my car and will get them done in photoshop if i have time. I will be going with a brushed finish with a chrome lip. The front rims will have a slight concave with a deep concave in the back. Similiar to this design:
Nice runs still. It takes a while to learn the car and get the times down. Plus you are doing your new engine/TT's so you have to learn it all over again... but when you do - look out. Permagrin.
