Your last pass looked noticeably more aggressive. I knew your 60 dropped just looking at it.

The white ZL1 belongs to the owner of Redline Motorsports and he ran the 9.95 that same day of the video above

They cleared mine on stock height but I wasn't comfortable on how close they were so I notched them anyways. Best 60" was 1.56 and lots of high 1.5s

Thanks for the pic. Looks very similar to 62nalide's Control Arm.

I mounted up my Welds with Hoosier slicks today and it seemed like I have a decent amount of clearance between the wheel and LCA. I was able to run my index finger between the lca and wheel, it was snug but I could pass it thru and I'd say it had a good 1/2" of clearance. What is the average clearance on your setup that's not rubbing?

Too much dang work to get these 17s on..rhino...we need Shahan to start boxing or fabbing arms. I am not in a hurry to change from the 18 though. Consistent mid 50s and a freak 49 works for some 60s as is.

Ive talked with him about it, I have even ordered a stock control arm to work off of. If we can sell 15-20 sets, I could justify it. Hed have to build a jig, but that's his game!
