You'll love it either way, but based on your wants/needs, A10 all day. I've always preferred manual trans sports/muscle cars, until driving the A10. I have one of the first batch of A10s and it's...

I hear ya. I think you're right. It seems most drag racers with these cars get antsy for mods and don't give themselves enough time to come across the conditions it takes to run 10s stock. I...

I had around -800 DA due to the temp dropping to 32 that night, but that was it. I made 12 passes that night trying to find traction on a cold slick track, so my car was actually hot. I've always...

Same here. The 17" drag radials on the rear make it 10 times worse. With the stock rears, it barely moves and I can pretty much just keep the wheel straight, but with the drag setup (rears only)...

Were you running front runners too or the stock wheels and tires. I've been told that skinnies up front will help, so I'm curious.

I agree. For some reason it multiplies significantly with my 17" drag radials. Their super soft and taller sidewalls adds to it, I'm sure. Would solid bushings or the lockouts cure it? I'd...

If I know I'm going to do some digs, I drop it even more. At least to the manuals 26 recommendation. Just everyday driving, I run the 29 to 30 because the lower pressure adds a little grip, and it...

2400 will not work with the stock tires. You'll likely want around 1200 and 12% slip, but you just have to play with it, because it will vary with the amount of grip you are getting.

I have Race Star 17x10.5 with a 7 inch backspace for my ZL1, everything stock, and I'm pretty sure the SS has smaller brakes. Hope that helps.
