    You will deffinately get your .5 - are you on street tires now? with DR's or slicks you will slice off more than .5

    I'd keep the steel driveshaft. When you start hooking up with the 12 bolt and slicks the aluminum ones break. Torque convertor will get you there too.

    .2 -.3 at best with gear change on motor. I went from 13.4 with 3.23 to 13.03 with 4.10. Nitrous was another story..... 12.4 with 3.23 to 11.73 with 4.10 both with 125 hp shot.

    So you ran a 13.08...what was your reaction time? If it was .300, bracket racing wise, you already have a 12.78 car. Of course you better hit that light perfecto.

    I'm confused.. I thought anything below .5 was redlighting, thus losing.... atleast the track here is like that... a .500 is a "perfect" light....
