    Yup....cleaned again.
    Little different now though.















    Looks like I need to air up the fronts a little bit. Sagging a bit.

    Track is opening this weekend. I won't be running for a few more weeks, but it is time to start getting ready.

    So do I.
    Here it will be tough though.

    If I can squeeze an 11.75 out of her I am doing very well. Freaking altitude.
    Should have a much more solid driveshaft under her soon as well.

    Some of the lightest wheels you can get on the car.


    Weld Prostar 15x8 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 13.0 (mine are the 15x10, but they are close)
    Weld Prostar 15x3.5 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10.0
    American Racing Torq Thrust II 17x9.5 . . . . . . . 24.0
    American Racing Torq Thrust II 17x11 . . . . . . . 27.0

    Total difference of 54 pounds at just the wheels. Smaller front tires are also much lighter than the 275/40/17. Rotational mass difference is much larger than your average dead weight on a car as well. If I understand it correctly, 54 pounds of rotational mass acts like removing about 250 pounds off the car.

    Bogarts are the lightest common wheel. Then the ProStars.


    Just for info...
    WS6/ZR1 (chrome) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20.5
    10 Spoke SS (painted) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 22.0
    10 Spoke SS (chrome) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 23.0
    Firehawk (painted) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 22.0
    Firehawk (chrome) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 23.0
    2000+ Z28/Camaro 16" (painted) . . . . . . . . 17.0
    1998 Z28/Camaro 16" (chrome). . . . . . . . . . 21.5
    5 Spoke Firebird/Z28 16" (painted) . . . . . . . . 19.5
    Those are WITHOUT tires.

    I did a little. Still needs a good cleaning though.
    Never been one to care much what it looks like under the hood. Clean and basic is fine for me. As long as it looks good outside and runs well.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    I think on motor mine would go tens off the mountain.
    Might take a couple things taken out of the car and someone that can actually drive, but I think it has the power.

    Just not caging mine. 11.49 is plenty fast for a car that sees 95% street duty.
