How's it going man! What happened to the old build?

I'll probably show up to the next one depending on the weather though. Glad you like the build!

What to do next?

Wheels, Appearance, or Performance.

I'd like to get some split 5 spoke wheels with a lip on the car.... too bad the ones I like are kinda expensive!!

I'd also like a v8 bumper with a heritage grille and gm front gfx....

Then, I'd also really like a nice shot of nitrous in the car so I can run faster...

What to do..... Anyone care to chime in?

I thought the same until I started talking to the right people. If u want to be fast in the 1/4 mile its all about nitrous with our cars. The supercharger and turbo units are just not that great and for the price they come at its crazy. With nitrous ill be able to at least keep up with v8s and 5.0s.

I also dont want to go crazy with looks. I want to keep it simple and mean looking. Im going to remove the stripes soon and go either all cgm with black wheels or gloss black wheels with gloss black stripes.

Got any other ideas?

Nice progress on your build. Running nearly 14 flat is great! Ghost stripes may work as well. Anything done on engine bay and interior cosmetics yet?

The engine bay is nearly stock. It cleaned up when I added the vararam but thats about it. The interior is also pretty much stock except for footwells

Do you know if you car has a posi/limited slip differential, do both tires spin or just one side? If it's an open diff, a posi/limited slip would be something you should try to do.

If it already limited slip, you might be able to better your 60 ft by rolling out rather than stomping on the gas when you launch.
