That's the plan. Haven't been to the dragstrip since High School. I'll for sure bring her out this year..

I would highly recommend a driveshaft as well as you have put together a great build but the stock ds could cause some big issues if it comes apart. Good luck you are going to love the F1R.
Agreed. I posted the original build sheet. But we have since ordered a built tranny, and upgraded the driveline.

Wow, very nice!
You'll have to swing it by here in Sandy when you bolt it all in so we can take a look!
What suspension parts did you order? You'll probably need some solid subframe mounts, solid engine mounts, trailing arms, toe links, and heavy duty axles to put even half that power safely to the ground!

Nice build so far!

Feel free to call, PM, or email us anytime!

If you've been reading the week long discussion about hi-flow cats...you might consider going cat-less at your your boost/hp level.

Great build(you need to give those gears another look) If we can help you out with your drive train give us a call,the stock rear will never last with that power ,sixspeed doesnt stand a chance.

You will have to much power for 3.91s,you should be all over 1000 hp,you should be trapping 150plus mph in the 1/4,and you would have to change to 5th gear if you keep the 3.91s and you couldnt grap 2nd gear fast enuff out of the hole .The more gear you can pull the quicker the car will be i would sugest something in the 3.50-3.60 range,fiftys geared a lil more towards street 60s geared toward the best posible et.We have several options with our 9 inch let me know if we can help you,its cheaper than you think

Good points all... I'll have to check with my builder and see what he has planned.

Thanks
