Wow, that's awesome. How high are you spinning the engine? Also, tire size? I'd like to know how much I can get away with myself haha.

I run 33x22.50 Hoosier streets. They measure 34x17 actual plus tire growth. I am shifting at 7500 and crossing the line at 7300 right now. Last year I ran 3.50's with a 31x18.50 Hoosier street tire but it wasn't enough gear to make the converter lock up on the top end.

I hate that, Had the same thing at one of our races. Lost and had the button in just not wired yet. You can bet it was ready for the next race.

I have some grudge races set up for this weekend, the last weekend of racing here my neck of the woods. Hopefully the weather holds off. I have the magic "GO" button hooked up this time.

Well, I took the car into my buddies shop to get the cage upgraded from my 8.50 mild steel cage to a 7.50 cert and ended up doing this...






Decided to just go whole new chrome moly chassis and a 25.3 cert instead. I guess I have another busy winter ahead!
