Salts going to be on the roads out here soon.
Yeah I was shocked at how much it picked up on such a low boost. If you notice the 60' times if I could launch it just a bit better the ET would be even better. The trap speeds support a lower ET if it will just hook up. I had almost a full tank of fuel too, next week I'll try with a half tank.

LOL
hell yeah that and a smaller wheel. Trying to figure out the best route to go. Right now I'm leaning towards the Z06 18" wheels but these new 17" wheels are very tempting.

They seem done. There was a local buyer that wanted it but they would not sell it to him. However there is word now that autozone is looking at buying it. They have the money to pay what ever is asked and since they already own autozone park (baseball) in memphis this would be a good second step for them. I hope they buy it because they will put the money in it to make it right. They sank millions into autozone park.

First Time running the Car

Well I still have less the 1000 miles on the car. Took it Rockingham today to the American Muscle Car Shootout. Not many cars there. Managed to get a good pass without shaking the crap out of the tires.

I pretty happy with the only mod being the Magie, Boost a pump, CAI.

I ran the Nitto's 555r 315/35/20s

11.5 @ 118

Well, I was finally able to get to the track this year and I ended up running my best time so far of 11.5 @ 118 mph. It was a blast and can't wait to get back to SGMP in April for the C5 Fest.

11.94 Video of Thunderracing.com car with cam, bolt ons & 20" Nittos
Finally edited some Video from last year of an 11.94 run at 119 mph.

Good view from behind car for burn out and run.

It's not in the right file extension for direct download so follow this link to You Tube.


Got 18 & 17" SSR 16 lb rims with 295/45/17 MT ET Streets and ran 11.79 last month. Time slip in 1/4 mile fast list.

I dropped 3 tenths with the Drag pack ... Did you install 1998-02 Fbody brakes ?

Still running stock brakes. The 17"SSR rears are two piece and did require grinding a little off of the top of the caliper and a 3/8"spacer. They were for a BMW so the 5 x 120 bolt pattern was an exact match and they fit tight over the longer 14mm lugs because the BMW lug for the wheel was 12mm. No issue with centering or lug nuts loosening.

Not sure what is in the drag pack but I have TA's, upper toe rods, Pedders sub-frame bushings, and spohn sway bar. BMR differential bushings are next.

TEA head porting soon.

You're next on my 1/4 mile list.
