This was the first effort of setting my car up to go straight. We removed 92#'s of rottating weight in the wheels and another 70 or so off the car. Stock rear with 4.56's 27" QTP hoosiers and skinnies on the front. Removed the swaybar and went for some decent 60' times but not real hard on the rear. Best 60' 1.761 best 1/8 was 7.440 96.83 mph and 11.564 123.24 mph was very pleased with the motor combonation. Their is still alot of potential in it.

Thank's guys, we are in teh process of taking the stock throtle body to 80mm, and reworking a LS1 intake (we just love to cut things apart) the car weighs closer to 3500 lbs also. Hoping to get in the high 10's @ 125 or so. Will post results as soon as we get it all sorted out.
