    15.7 I think was my first pass... racing a gutted cavalier.. racing harnesses.. etc.. thought it would be fast.. didn't know where the end was.. was going.. and saw he was WAY back there.. so I thought he was braking and done.. so I braked and slowed down.. had like a 62mph.. LOL...

    Just so you know.. the rear and suspension will add a lot of weight.. and actually slow you down... but it will last longer...

    Is your a stick? Cause dropping 1.5 seconds is quite a bit from running consistent 4 runs...

    Maybe.. kinda.. it depends.. but its more longevity.. you should hook a little better.. but like I said.. you will weigh more. I was down to 12.1 just before my 10 bolt went.. added my rear and suspension stuff and back up to 12.4s.. figure I put on 3-400 pounds..

    Ah.. yeah, with the new rear, you will be able to rev higher... that makes more sense.
