    2.1? come on now man with over 100 passes a year? i ran 25 runs but would of done more if it werent for my stupid clutch issues. I'll prob just go w the monster i guess. I was pullin 1.89 w my stock clutch and street tires. not that great of a 60ft but not awful for my mods just headers no cats tune and slp lid. Thats about all i can get i think out of that rear till i buy the ford 9.

    All that was with my stock clutch. I've taken the car out on the back roads with the LS7 and did tons of clutch drops and slips with my H/C power, practicing my launch. It has held without an issue and feels real good to the foot

    I'm going to take it to the track after I get DR's. No reason on running this power with street tires anymore

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    Nope, saving to start my own business. Every day is something with this car. Some days I don't want to stick any more money into an aging platform and get a C6Z and other days I want to build the shit outta it

    A Z06 weighs about 500lbs less than an f bod. "rated for 450hp" doesn't mean anything. I wouldn't use one if your car is to see the track at all.

    correction...he said C6Z... (505hp)
    so you have me wondering...my car wont see THAT many passes this summer because of the rear...however in 2-3 years it will have a fully built suspension and be primarily a weekend warrior...
    so should i go with a monster stage 3?

    Im going with a monster stage 3 and my car will be mostly bolt on for a while to come. I've heard pretty good things, couple mentions of chatter following install but i heard it mostly goes away after a certain period. Should get the car back tomorrow

    I noticed my chatter on my Spec Stage 3+ has calmed down some. It was definitely there for the 1st several thousand miles though, which sucked. A few times at the track broke it in I think

    New rear main seal, clutch, flywheel, Tick MC, Slave, and a Speed Bleeder Line. Just don't have time to do that crap in my garage, saves on the mess too.

    Its my second one. The one in the TA was real nice, got $100 off the price also. If you want one call joey at Tick and ask about the 100 off special he was running, he may still be able to do that for you. Not sure if you got any juice left to squeeze out of your wallet after that parts list i saw earlier this week. Should be a stout build from what i saw though
