I am going to be upgrading to 15x12 wheels and doing a minitub in the process. I would like to see pics of your 15x12 wheels with slicks on an sn95, 10.5w's would be great, however any will do.

Thanks in advance

Here are two picks of mine, 15x12 rims with 29.5x11.5 tires

If I were you, I would soften the front struts and move some weight from the the front to the back of the vehicle so you can get better weight transfer to the rear.:D

What does that thing sixty foot and is it on the back tires? James

Launch

It's allready taken care of. I was not trying for this at all. Car now leaves about 10" with the front in the air at 1.27 60' It just took a few clicks on the atruts and shocks.

Phil, I was just being sarcastic. I wasn't making fun of your launch. :salute: James

I got lucky on this one. I didn't hurt anything up front. Dented the 4 lower header tubes a bit, scraped the paint off the rear bumper cover. It actually went up on the parachute mount. That was the only thing keeping it from going over. This was a new car this year and it's been a bitch getting it dialed in.

Torque Box

TwnT70s,
Yes, I used Wolf's mini tub kit. I think it's the same as the one for the Fox Bodies. It didn't fit for ####. However, it does come with plate to stiffin up the torque boxes after you cut some of it out. If I were to take more of the lower trim off the side of the car, I think a 31" tire would fit. I might be trying that over the winter.

I used the set up out of my old fox body. 8.8 cut 2" off each end, 9" ends. 15x12 Hole Shots with 6 7/8 back space. There is room to go with a 5 7/8 back space on the SN body if you wanted to bring the tire out to the wheel lip. I wanted the front tire and rear tire tucked in a bit on this car. It gives it a sleeker look.
