would my Weld Wheels with my 27 x 11.5's Hoosiers that I have on my 88 Camaro fit on my 2010?

While you shouldn't, many are less patient. Of course, there are many reposted thread topics. No worries though

Chief,
I had the wheels made by SJM/Bogart. The wheels were $1419 and about $50 to ship. The tires I got directly from Hoosier at $199 each. And then I need speacial lug nuts ( the stockers don't work) so that was $50. The entire package was roughly $1900.

I have no clue about the other wheels. I would think that they wouldn't. Worse thing is that you try and find out for sure.

Radz,
I can feel your pain. I dumped my 18" drag radial set-up for the SJM's and actually cut a worse 60'. The best I could do on the slicks with the stock stall was a 1.65. With the stock stall I can't leave any harder than 1450. Otherwise, with the front wheels lockes, the car pushes itself down the track. Thats why I hopeful that the Pro Torque being built for my mods and my car specifically will really kick the baby in the ass. Ted did all the ordering so I'm pretty sure it'll be dead on!!

SuperchargedSS, thats one of the most impressive cars on this site. A stock L99 motor running 10s is awesome! Hope the stall helps. Any plans on changing rear end gears?

Ah, next time just rev it to 4500 in neutral and drop it in drive - just like a high stall converter... j/k

Can't wait to see your 60' with that new converter.

Maybe gears next. I always forget to check my rpms as I go through the traps so I can tell Ted. I don't want it shifting into 5th. I'm trying to stuff in stages now. First was the slicks. Now the stall. Then the fuel system and more boost, and then gears. When our weather gets good again, the car should do 10.50's without ever opening anything on the engine. Thanks for the kind words guys!!

Serious question - are you starting in 1st gear or 2nd ?
Because your car in first is the same as a 4L80/4L85E with a 5.31 rear gear.

6L80E 4.03*3.27 in 1st = 13.17 which is the same as a 4L8xE with a 5.31 rearend ratio.

I'M surprised your car can be thinkin about shifting into 5th as most of guys that run the 1/4 are just good into 4th on autos. Please give us more info on your 6l80e tune. thanks

Pretty sure he meant to say 4th instead of 5th... but then he's talking 10.5s which I have no clue about...

Wacker did a bunch of test and tune on this. The Auto shifts into 4th right before the traps. He made adjustments to keep it in 3rd all the way through and found it was better to just let it shift to 4th as it was dropping out of the power band in 3rd.

No I meant 5th. I don't want the car shifting into fifth gear and loosing anything. With a 4.10 I'm pretty sure that it would put the car into 5th. I need to check and see where my rpm's are when I cross the line in 4th.

Wacker crosses the line at 111mph. I go through at 125 +. I'm pretty sure I'm into 4th by then.

Speedster,
I start in 1st. All I do is put the car in "S". Shut both the TC and Stabiltrak off and hold on. I let the car do the rest.

Silverfox,
Jannetty tuned the car so if you have any questions what so ever I would ask him. You def don't want me trying to answer any unless you're in need of a good laugh.

Guess I just need to work on hitting the traps faster than 109 and 4th gear will be just right...

Stall Converter and Trans Cooler is on my list... hitting 1.7 60' is a nice target.

Thanks for the info. Just wondering since with that converter you will have some really serious low end grunt and those slicks should be screaming...

Now is where the suspension tune will really become important to plant those tires. Can't wait to see watcha run both 60' and 1/4.

I posted this on another thread but you guys look smart too

As you can see from my build info below I have a PTC converter. At lower acceleration the transmission is a bit more squirley and seems to hunt. When you go hard throttle it is very crisp. I understand that the stock converter is a bit looser and is designed for smoother shifts. My question is should I be experiencing what I am with this higher performance converter. I honestly don't know what the stall is (long story that I will share later) but I believe it is a 10" Lock up. It's almost like it wants to shift and then stalls a bit. Help a rookie out brother!

I think what I am experiencing at the low loads is that I am bouncing off the stall speed and it is trying to lock up and I am not being consistent enough with my 'foot shifter' aka throttle control on my part? Keep in mind this is my first experience with a high performance TC. Go easy on the noob boys!
