We put the car on what we thought was kill but come to find out we were only 1.5 psi over my off the trailer pass of [email protected] I did spray in 2nd gear as well. At the end of the day I drove her back into the trailer on her own power, yes drive is hurt but not by a power issue or mechanical failure its all my fault. I have to thank everyone involved who has stood by me supporting this incredible adventure.
So for the shootout I've decided to tear the car all the way down and fix a bunch of cosmetic damage from fire at the Shoot Out a couple years back. While doing this I've come to realize how much extra weight she's been packing. So we built a new tube K member, stocker was for sure big, bulky and dead weight, new motor and trans mounts, removed all the body sealer in the wheel wells, trim here and there and replace non structural bolts and nuts with billet alumn ones, I also was toying the idea of chromoly tube bolts but the cost vs weight savings and time to drill and helicoil just wasnt there. Knowing my last race ready curb weight, Im expecting a whopping 2080ish curb weight when Im done. I'm still gonna be rocking the stock IRS with 3000 gt rear diff but that too is being looked at for either a tube IRS set up or just fall into the grove and do a solid axle rear, either way theres a ton of weight back there to be needing gone. Cant wait to get out to Ohio and make some serious passes.
