Thats cool.....different strockes for different folks, each one takes it's own skill. I'd be safe to say I'm about 80% autox and 20% drag race. I mean, the autox stuff is fun, but it's a pretty awesome feelin havin a 125-150hp kick of nitrous in a straight line too!
Again, thanks for all the compliments but what it boils down to is just getting out there, and getting as much time in the car as possible. I bought this car new, and it's my first RWD/V8 car. I autox'd it STOCK and just slowly added one piece at a time after I recognized what the car was doing, that I didn't want it to do. Not quite accurate on this but here goes:
1. Alignment(C/C plates and some same rate springs, just a lil' lower)
2. wheel/tire combo(R-compounds)
3. chassis stiffening
The other stuff like 4.10 gears, packing the OE diff real tight, and some pullies/plenum/throttle body/intake/exhaust were just kinda "drag race" and "fun" stuff, but I'm sure they sorta help. I really like the 4.10's for our smaller/tighter courses. However it's mostly a blessing, but it can also be a cursing. Some courses I do need to ride the limiter in 2nd gear(which I HATE!), but most of the times it's not bad. The www.trscca.com
event normally allows me to go on to 3rd gear. This past even there, I was able to take a Chicago Box in 3rd gear. Thats about 65mph for me, at the given acceleration/RPM I was traveling. EXILLERATING!!!!
