The car's race weight is a concern and you need to add the weight of safety equipment regardless of your plans as either your going to get kicked out or simply another guy with power that is certed at best for a 12.99.
Also some of the mods you listed under "Suspension"
Kenny Brown Double Diamond Subframe Connectors "Chassis"
BMR Strut Tower Brace "Chassis" also does not help 1/4
UMI Adjustable Pan Hard Bar "Suspension for Road Racing"
Eibach LT1 Pro-Kit Lowering Springs "Suspension" Debateable if it helps
Koni Sport Adjustable Shocks (Koni Yellows - 4/3 Package) "Suspenion" Need better
BMR Poly/Poly Adjustable Lower Control Arms (Rear) "Chassis/Suspenion" Adjustible LCA brackets??
There is NO right RPM.
Rev to max, let it fly and if the car does not work, you need to look at tire compound, suspension, 2 step, gearing, race weight. Also you should get a scatter shield. https://ls1tech.com/forums/eastern-m...ay-new-pb.html
I picked up wheels, but worked so good that it was bouncing off the rear and un loading. The pic missed the right wheel had bout 1 foot and the left even higher. Since then I spent money on tons of mods, look to get back soon. Had cancer and kinda put a lot of **** on the back burner.
Last note: never expect anything, just get out there and do test hits and make sure your cutting good 60 foots and the car is leaving straight. Do a 50 - 100 - 150 hits and make sure your not going to send it into the wall.
