Nice, he might drive right around me.

So you guys think a 275/50/15 Hoosier dr2 will be plenty of tire ? I think Iíll be fine right now but Iím worried after heads cam stall. Itís just so nice cuz itís only 25.6 tall and 22lbs...

i had 315/35/17 Hoosier dr2 previous that was great. Much wider. Iím giving up a lot of width but Iíll have a bunch more sidewall. Iím hoping itís just as good but idk...

Well damn son at least you didn't down shift and **** up the engine could of been that bad.

Hoosiers are great tires and they are light weight. Get some heat into them and you'll hook.

Weather is looking like crap for the nearest track and all the good regions of Mexico for the next few days. Even have a Dragy on the way and wonít even get to really use it. Ever sad.

I'm sure that comment was pointed towards me. How do think i got the ls6? **** can happen to all of us. The difference between men and you is a man can remedy the issue.

Hopefully you'll be gone again soon Mac.

Idk about yall.....but i sure as hell ain't taking any tire advice from Mac.

I would have to check out the gear calc first with the difference in tire height. I would also want to know projected rpm on the up shifts after the h/c.

Also i would imagine after the h/c a stall would be required unless the cam is very mild. All that would play into it.

Other than that the hoosier is a great tire. If your tracks prep is typically good and you stick with the stock stall i would probably use the 275. If you go with a larger stall i would think the bigger tire would be better with most track prep.

To confuse things more......i would also look at the Mickeys. Those things work decent even when they're a old pos like on my notch.

Nice car. I’ve really grown to love the fox body cars now and the third gen Camaros look less appealing now. I used to love them funny how taste changes. I probably like the 3rd gen firebird formulasthe most now. Weird. When I was very very young I loved the 91-92 z28 but it just doesn’t do it for me anymore. I’d probably rather have a clean fox. And I used to hate them. The mind is a funny thing

id still love a 92 z28 but it woukd need a lot of touches to fit my fancy

Thanks man.

I love how third gens look, honestly probably as much as I like the fox looks. I was always a coupe kinda guy but the four eyed cars I like in hatch. Once you get rid of the bullshit like clutch fan, replace starter with 94-95 starter, and remove smog they're a great platform, ton of room in engine bay.

Dad has a 98 Z28 that's got a baby cam, I'm always trying to talk him into doing some other stuff but he never pulls the trigger. My brother is getting the car bug again and wants a fox but Jesus fox prices are stupid high for one in good condition.

Edit: better angle of the slowstang.

Such a cool car very nice. Just needs a backup camera with display and Bluetooth. It’s hard to go back from that lol

my next choice was a c6z but for the money I felt was going back in time aside from strait line performance. When I found my car brand new for 30 k I couldn’t pass it up!

when you getting back to the track ?

I still love them they just need a few changes now imo. That car was my first love and all I ever wanted when I was 14 lol. My friend had a 91 formula 350 tpi and it felt like a ******* rocket ship when I was a freshman in 98-99. Took my breath away from a launch as a child. Funny how things change

he could destroy my other friends 90gt but it was an auto. I guess the auto back then for the stangs really killed them. But it was honestly no contest. They messed around a few times and that formula always kicked his ***

Auto foxes were slow as ***** compared to the 5sp.

Well Ultra for the track - I'm gonna try to go while I'm here in town in STL one of the test and tune nights, otherwise once I get the car to SC, I'll bring it to Darlington which is like an hour and 45 away from where we live. I still have some intake tweaks I'd like to do before then, within the next 2 weeks or so. Got a bunch going on while I'm here in the STL area but I make time to tinker on the fox.
