Handling Tech - 4G63 suspension, steering, brakes, tires, lightweight wheels, bushings, etc.
as for drag radials, I haven't foudn one that i can hook on yet.. When i was at 300hp i could get decent traction on them once i got a LSD, but as soon as i crossed back over the 400 mark that was all over with. Even with the rear of the car jacked way up in the air via coil overs to get weight on them nothing short of a slick on low psi will hook up. I'm spinning street tires in third on the interstate by just rolling into it at 430hp, so if you're truely at 500 you should already be feeling the fact that nothing short of a slick is going to hook up.
AS for 10 second GS-T's, by my HP, and 70-90 times i should be a solid mid to low 11 and i've yet to hit anywhere better than 12.0xx and i did that years ago with much less power.. now i just spin more and MPH out higher in the end
You'd have to do some serious gutting to hit 10's on a 2g FWD, and if it's streetable it's only because you had plates on it before the modding and live some where that doesn't do yearly inspections
TO be completely honest that was my plan for the longest time, but when i was working for the postal service and blew my trans i needed one ASAP and could not find a used FWD 2g turbo trans aywhere in the US (searched a network of recyled yards i use towork for that have yards in every state and couldn't find a thing!) SO the only choice i had left was to call Jon at TRE as i had dealt with him years earlier on some motorcycle stuff and he built me a nice FWD trans with quafe diff and got it to me in the time frame i had to work with.
Now, I'm still wanting to go AWD, but with the price of the TRE trans and knowing i'll never get out of it what i have in it i just kinda shake my head and take in the realization that unless i hit the lotto it probably aint happenin
Hell, now i have a spare 2g FWD turbo trans and can't sell the damn thing for the life of me and when i needed one you couldn't get one used, now no one needs one...that's my luck
I figure that i'll build a pre-1972 RWD 4g63 powered fun-car (pre 72 so i'll not ever have to worry about emissions when i move back east here soon ) and get myself a nice daily driver that's slow and inconspicuouse, sell my shell or something and then start that project, but right now my health is not so good so putting money in cars is the last thing i can worry about.. hell i can't even afford to put a used hx35 onmy car cause i'm about to lose my house due to mounting medical bills and missed work time
