I haven't jumped on the 15" setup, still debating whether to spend the money there or not. I can't decided whether or not the benefit is worth the cost. Do you think there would be a real difference?

Personally I don't think it's worth it. Maybe if you're dead set on running a drag radial. The 16" slicks work great. I just got another set to start this year. I'd do that first and keep the 17's up front.

What's your drag setup now?

Well I have 22s or 20s, pick your poison

I am leaning toward the 16" bogarts with the adjustable LCA, or a 17" bogart. Mostly because I have the rear suspension back in the car, and don't want to start over. I'm also thinking it is a lot of money for very little gain, IRS is the real limit here.

If the 15" was really worth it I'd have it, trust me.. The 16" rear bogart with v6 brakes and a 17" up front with the Brembos is what I use and its worked great.

Are you going to trailer it to the track?

Yeah I figured you would

I am going to trailer it, way too much hassle to switch at the track. Plus, driving it to the fest would be a nightmare.

I wasn't sure if you'd have to drive to the track but since you don't the 28x14.50 Hoosiers will work great.

F driving the cars to the fest. I thought about driving to the fest and not racing, just having more time to see everyone, but Ill get in trouble of my car isn't on the track. So it'll be there racing again.

Yeah, I'll bring my set of street wheels and tires for some of the other activities and the car show and such. That way I can drive the car around instead of the truck too. I'll be ready for you though, don't you worry

Why would I worry???? You car doesn't even run!

Won't you be embarrassed get spanked by a car with 40 less cubes?

Last year I left the drag wheels on the entire time. If you drag race both days you won't have time for anything else. We actually left the cars there overnight on Friday and just drive the trucks around. Everything happens at the hotel so there really is no reason to leave except for dinner.

Not tomorrow, next wk.

Right now it's still a 9.81 ride. Just no wheels to mount my slicks. Rich is calling me tomorrow..

Ill spank that turd in the pits bc that's where it will be when I put you back on the trailer in the quick 16.....assuming you can make it in.

It's tough to run 9.81 on the rotors, especially with that little 376.

You'll be putting it back on the trailer, someone has to put it away while I put the trophy up front

Been a little while, but here's the update. Blower is on the motor, and most of the motor is finished. I ended up breaking my water pump into 2 pieces on a hydraulic press but that's how it goes. Belts are now routed after LPE got me another water pump, nitrous is just starting to be plumbed.



Beyond that, I got the transportation handled now too:

Sweet trailer!! What manufacturer is it?


Are you using the LPE 10 rib? I'm thinking yes and you were trying to press the pulley on when it broke. They make a water pump with the pulley already installed.
