    Lifted.

    It wasn't much...but at that speed it is easy to over adjust.





    And all my parts bolted on.

    I think that is what happened to mightymouse at the dragstrip except he wasn't able to recover. It was sad to see his car all torn up, but he was ok which in the end is all it matters.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    lol, i heard this one quote from Bill Goldberg regarding his shelby cobra replica: "we're going to install a toilet on the passenger side so that when I punch it, they can just shit right in their seat."

    Of course, once I finally figured out my ideal shift points, I installed 3.90's and I'm trying to figure it out all over again. I dropped down to 3rd at 65 mph last night and it was starting off in a very strong part of the band! FUN! FUN!
    Where did you get 3.90s?
