Moved the car to wash it up before I hit the track Friday. I'm glad I did... driveshaft was rubbing something on the body. Gonna have to raise ride height and do a quick drive around the block. Will post track results friday night

Edit:

Got around to raising rear ride height but it was pretty apparent that's not where the rubbing was coming from. When I moved the bars somehow the diagonal link needed shortened as well. Theres now a pretty nice groove in the driveshaft from rubbing the rear driveshaft loop.

I still raised rear ride height about an inch by moving coilover brackets up on the rear housing. My main concern is by raising the rear it will lower the ic even more, making it even more aggressive. Fingers crossed

Went ahead and scaled everything back a little bit to make some room for 300kpa tuning. Followed the tuners trend on timing and fueling in case I decide I want to up it to the 28-30psi area for a final pass.

Got some good passes in last night. Slowly figuring the car out. Made a bar change so wasnt too sure what to expect. Left soft and shook the tires. Put more power in the launch, went faster everywhere, put more power in it again, track wasnt there past the 60', pedaled around the 200ft mark and called it a night. Would've definitely been a pb had that not happened. Time to retire this sbe and come out swinging hard next year.

Passes are in order. Last pass was made on 28psi shown in the mph gain

Well I decided to take the car out one last time for the year. This time leaving in first gear. Left soft the first pass and got some tire shake. Added some more power on the hit and had to get out of it about 20 foot into the 60' was on it's way onto the bumper. Went right and got out of the groove, managed to get back into it and run it out. Vaccum booster line blew off and I didnt pack the chute. Took everything I had to slow the car. Called it a night there. Oh yeah, still on stock front struts lmao. Front end limiters are now on the list.

That's Awesome nice pic to!
Can't wait to see what you do next year.
Mini Fireball is a cool nickname for your car, at least until you run faster than the original Fireball

Thanks guys. Getting it figured out slowly

Ended up finding a good deal on a stock bore ls2 block. I couldn't find anything wrong with the sleeves or any of that. Going to take it down and have it checked out this week before I put any money into it.

Went ahead and ordered the team Z front end limiter kit as well. If I can make it to the track one more time this year I'd be happy, if not, not a huge deal.

Can you show some pics of the limiter install and do you log back pressure with your single turbo setup?
