    yeah, slicks will be hard on a stock T5....especially with the tq a 125 shot is going to make.

    I kinda sounded like a jackass my last post lol, didnt mean to. Sounds interesting though. I do 100ft drags wtih people on the street all the time in a way I guess haha. Just give it some good throttle through 1st and 2nd. Let us know how it goes.

    Damn that. Tremecs are out...

    BUILT T-5s that shift like stockers are whats hot in the streets right now.

    I've got a G-Force T-5 and I wouldn't trade it for any other 5 speed....unless it was for Astroperformance's new T5

    My car is running the stock 8.8" with 3.73s, under drive pulleys, exhaust and a 150 dry shot and has yet to break, neither has the trans.
     
  11. yeah i would get a gforce t5 before a tremec too. I always hear how big of a piece the t5 is, but i have romped the piss out of mine. I was drifting it for awihle when i first got it (drifter guys thought it was cool i could drift at 2500 rpm instead aof 7000), then i did some auto-x, and now i am back to drag racing it. I haven't broke mine yet. and trust me....drifting is super hard on shit lol.
