That's wild. I definitely see that a lot of people seem to need them, I guess I just got lucky that mine seems to shut all the way off.

100% replace the OE plastic throw out bearing support with a billet aftermarket piece. If you melted one, you'll melt another one. While the trans is out, definitely put a remote speed bleeder in,...

Do you guys really kill batteries without the tenders? I store my car from November 1 - March 31 in a cold cold barn in Upstate NY. Every spring, after sitting all season, I hit the key, and it...

About 8mm, 0.31 inches, more than what's pictured on my car. Your tire selection will also dictate how much it sticks out. With a 20" wheel, the wheel itself will be that much closer to the fender...

For me, I'm ok with the toe-rod being fixed. It's still adjustable for general alignment purposes, just not quick adjust for on/off track tweaking. I am curious to see what you experience with the...

Duh - some times I forget the obvious. I was just thinking it was quicker to unplug, than to explain failing it in the tune to try to force SD.

Hoping you get some good weather - that was the story of my season last year, rain out after rain out.

How'd it go? I'm trying for this Saturday, the 19th. If it'll give up a few more 1.6x 60' times I think it'll run some 11.5x or better, and that would make me happy.

That's the one. I think you could probably run everything at once. I like the ebrake vs. a line lock because it's one less thing I need electronics for, and it's variable, so I can easily creep...

I'd like to see both. And miles driven per year (to get some sense of reliability at the power level).

I agree - a well spec'd "big cam" with proper tuning will drive just fine. I'm interested in what your overlap @.050" is - that usually has a very large influence on driveability.
