    Here’s a video of me in the prepped lane. Did a 1.49 60’ which is my best in the car. I think blipping the rev limiter is what dropped the et tho. Bunch of low 1.5s in the unprepped lane

    Couple pics my wife took of the car today at our local cars and coffee. Finally figured out the wastegate issue on the car. This vibrant push loc hose isn’t holding up well to hear so may go back to the ugly Firestone line lol.

    Drag Race Build my journey to a 9sec street car

    They were nitto nt555r drag radials. They were always well taken care of. That’s the only reason I think they lasted. I was planning on changing tires out over winter but after seeing that in the sidewall that plan got moved forward to now lol

    Dogbox or swap to auto?

    I’m a fan of it personally lol I have a video of it on my build journal after I got them put in

    Dogbox or swap to auto?

    I pieced it together. Then sent my trans to a good buddy that knows them well and had him build it up for me. I added the trans pan and transfer gears because those were simple to do

    Dogbox or swap to auto?

    I was in the same boat a few years ago. It was 8k for the dogbox, plus $1300 for the clutch you need (have to use a twin disc with evo splined disc) and then you’re still on stock axles that don’t like the shock from the 5spd if you don’t launch it just right. With my current auto swap on my...

    More test driving on the straight cut gears. Also decided to pull the back cover just to make sure they were wearing ok. Next up is getting my trailer done and get it up to kevin jewer to get turned up.

    Soo I found a little trick on putting bearings in without using a press. I was a bit skeptical but tried it anyways and it actually worked well. Going to try this with the other bearings then got to plan a day to swap these things out

    It didn’t take long at all to get them. After I ordered them it took 2 days to get here. Granted they’re in Michigan and I’m in Ohio.

    Drag Race Build my journey to a 9sec street car

    Got one of the tapered bearings ordered today to get these billet gears put in. Had to pull one of the gears out of my spare trans to rob the bearings off of so that I can swap to the new gears so it’ll be a quick (knock on wood) job to just swap out.

    Drag Race Build my journey to a 9sec street car

    Pretty is an understatement. Theyre a piece of art for sure. Plan is to get the drivetrain ready for this new motor/ turbo combo that’s planned for the car. Was gonna go borg but I may take the plunge with a xona rotor

    I never thought of that but that would work perfect! Yea it was a total pain lol. I may get a couple fittings and some 4an and attach it that way too at the bottle that way it would make servicing the system easier.

    Decide to mess around with bottle mounting after work tonight.. the original plan was to mount it on the d bar but since I’m running a rear seat it doesn’t look like it’ll work out well. Next option is the harness bar. The harness bar location seems to be the best option as far as being out of...

    Drag Race Build my journey to a 9sec street car

    I’ve been back and forth on where these should go. My thought was have the one for the cabin where anyone could reach it and the one for the engine bay where I could. I may change it again as nothing is set in stone right now

    Drag Race Build my journey to a 9sec street car

    There are so many guys running these fire bottle kits. I’ve spent months looking into fire suppression for the car. Talked a good bit with Tom noonen and pulled the trigger on the first kit. I’ll get the second kit here in the next month or so once I recoop lol
