Weather does look good

I've just always been told by Ted that the LPE was good up until 800 rwhp. You're already past that point. We are slowly working our way up to it. At 755 my fuel situation was still great so I think we can crank it up some more. My car at 800 rwhp with a suspension should be f#*king evil!

Thanks man. Im anxious to wrap it up and hit the strip a few times I Just want to run down the strip once after spending all this money haha. I'm working out a sponsorship with a wheel company so my car will be spending a lot of its time at shows this year.

I'll be starting on my next project after this. Probably a Turbo Hayabusa I'd like to go 6's this year on it.

March 11 is the ECS rental. I need to get a hold of Alex or Doug and see if there are any spots left. I just hope I'm ready.:(

Yeah I know Ted says that a lot and I don't doubt him but the guys at ECS says they have been using them in 1000whp builds. The squash is a great setup from a longevitity standpoint. I'm doing this pump once and it'll take me as far as I'm gonna go for quite some time.

Your car at 800rwhp+ is a mid 9s and lower

I'm holding off and reserving a spot simply becasue I'm not really sure if my car will be done. Ted and his chassis guy didn't like the springs that came on the Pfadt drag specific coil overs. They think the back is to soft and the front is to stiff and that the tires will slam into the fenders. Obviousy Matt, Aaron, Blair and myself have discussed this but it's Ted's baby so it's his call. Pfadt hooked me up with another spring package we can run, that was two weeks ago and counting. They are getting drop shipped from the manufacturer and thats who is behind. It's out of Pfadts hands at this point.

With the stock ride height the tires cleared the fenders but with the drag setup the rear is 3/4 of an inch lower in the rear. Here's what it looked like at only 650 rwhp. Pretty close but no issues. Add another hundy and subtract 3/4" and who knows. The shock itself should control all that being designed that way but again it's Teds call.

I hear ya man. It looks like you were cutting it close to begin with and Im still amazed you did that on the stock suspension lol. Pretty badass man almost doing a wheelie It sucks when stuff like that happens, happened to em with my MGW shifter. I had my appointment all setup and I was waiting and waiting for the tracking. Called them up a few days later and they said "oh yeah we told you it was all in stock, well we don't have one piece". Luckily they had one built that someone cancelled their order.

I would imagine that the drag stuff should be able to do that. I hooked up my gopro to my car and I was playing with my suspension adjusting it. Car squats but I have it full hard in the rear and it keeps it nicely under control for non-drag specific stuff.

Dude, how many phone books you stuff under your ass to see out when the front is that high in the air...I could change the oil under there when it's like that...

Who the F*#k worries about seeing!!! I figure if I hold the wheel straight I shouldn't hit anything. Keep your eye out for the new JRE Gen V booster seat. Designed for the 5'6 and under crowd. So really just PQ and myself and with the way that fool has been driving he needs all the visibility he can get!!

Thankfully it's so early in the year in not really missing much. Pfadt also gave us the spring sizes/dimensions so we can also get then elsewhere. Ill know my next move in the next day or so.

So couple things to update on my front here about the car. Firstly, I'll have my new wheels in about 5-6 weeks just in time for show season. These wheels don't officially exist so I can't share any pictures with you all but I will post pictures of the 3d model renderings they are going to be sending. They are truly one of a kind and I'll be running some very aggressive offsets and sizes to make it work.

So in light of the car show season I'm going to spruce up the interior and exterior. Ordered some hydro dipped carbon pieces for the inside and I am going to debadge the camaro on the fender and replace it with the old school "camaro" from emblempros in black. Also I my carbon fiber seibon st trunk lid will be ordered and in the mail shortly.

I still have not decided where to put the supercharged LSX emblems I got. I'm thinking underneath the new camaro fender emblem? On the hood on each side? Any suggestions from you all?

I guess thats all for now

Can't wait to see those wheels! I think the LSX emblems would look good on the hood on each side!
