When your car traps 145 mph in the 1/4 we'll figure out your rwhp. Maybe not PQ. He'll be to busy trying to log his car!!

It's unbelievable...

The difference is amazing... I'll give you my graphic description at the Fest... It's both a mental vision, and a tactile one...

I can't wait to get the front sway on and sling it around a few corners... Carefully of course...

I drove it into San Antonio tonight, visited with friends and then drove it home... In the morning, I'll drive it to the shop and then load it on the trailer... Next stop... Indy...

Ya, I had to look it up.

I can't imagine the difference doing it all at once.

I literally did it all a step at a time.

Started with Drop springs and sways.

Then XAs.

Then bushings and inserts.

Then rear supercars.

Then ZL1 sway bar.

Then front supercars.

All over the span of a two years. hahaha



To do all of them at once would have been better. I can't imagine the difference.

The way I did it was kinda like gaining or losing weight over time. You never really notice until you see that old pic.

This may surprise some but the biggest notice during all of that was the rear ZL1 sway bar. Once I got the electrical tape bushings off of course. lol I can't explain why, and maybe it's because I rode for nearly a week with the make shift bushing inserts, but it was a huge difference. Not sure why it would be. Unless that end link tab or the whole LCA moved THAT much?

Truck, trailer and car are in the driveway... I'll unload the car and take the truck and trailer to the car wash... The car got washed last night, but the truck and trailer need some attention...

The tires are in the trailer, the nitrous bottles are in the garage... It's too hot to leave them in the car... so, other than packing, I guess I'm pretty much ready to go....

Heading out Monday morning... Dallas, Memphis, and then Indy...
