FIRST OFF THANKS TO KEVIN AT BASELINE SUSPENSIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE SUSPENSION WORKS LIKE CRAZY!!!!

i had a autoweld chassis arb in my car that was junk!!

i have basline uppers so i went with a baseline ARB also.

before the baseline arb the car was unmanagable. it never made a clean 1/8 or 1/4 pass. the body would twist so bad at launch the car would never settle down and go straight.

heres the update!!!

i went to Sooner Motorplex in lawton,ok to run in the 6.40 1/8 class. i had to use the baby pills and let off early to run the number.

first pass i ran it through to see where i was at. it was in the heat! car ran better every pass.

Whats up with your MPH, 110 all the way down to 88. It doesn't sound like you are lifting until after you cross the traps.

Car hooks awesome, I can't wait to put Kevins uppers and ARB on my car.

trevnut,
Nice 60's! what does the rest of your suspension consist of? Tires? Are you using the weld inbetween the frame rails ARB or the one that welds/bolts to the trunk floor? thanks...

That's the way I want my car to 60' and it will as soon as I get off my ass and make a couple of changes. What gears do you have?

we are very similar... i have Tokico 5-way drags up front, but same K and same springs

out back i have Pro-launch 2's, ARB 2, Track locator, LCA 1, but no coilovers. Im on stock GT springs and Tokico 5-ways

hope it works well as a combo. If not... i guess coil-overs will be soon behind
