In the meantime, this may be fun and a glimpse of what's to come! Safety Note: Never let your arms form an X on the steering wheel. Feed it to each hand. Someone could probably explain that better.

Nice driving by Erik at Torq. He did a great job at the Camaro versus Challenger contest too ! He did a really good job against Jeff's Challenger. Jeff is a great guy and has a really nice STS TT setup.

B, is your car designed for this type of driving as well? I'm sure it could, but is it more intended for the 1320?

It is a matter of suspension tuning. It has the right components for Autocross, Drag, Road Course and Open Road. The toughest part is setting the coilovers and other suspension components for each type of application. It'll take time, but eventually we are hoping it will run reasonably well at the various venues. We'll see...

3.25's

Between the 345/35R18 tires, these gears, the 4L85E, the torque converter's multiplication, the trans brake and boost it should be a decent combo for most venues we wish to run.

I wasn't expecting you to run low gears! (4.10) Because I remember you one saying you wanted to also achieve around 20+mpg.... Then you said the gears you were gonna run and it made sense!

Yes, both the Fest and the SST...

Here is the diff with the one piece 35 spline stubs installed:
Note the very nice Pedders differential bushings.


Here is the complete bulletproof IRS solution courtesy of GForce1320. Chris said the axles in this pic are not the Outlaws. Will get a pic of them next to a standard axle. They are beefy. Everything is 300M material.

Bruce, that photo has your center section shown but the axles are our standard 300m 1000+hp axles.
The axles I sent you for the SST make those look like toothpicks LOL
