Yep, that’s it. Sorry, get a little flustered when I’m upset…He’s probably talking about the torque arm that goes forward to the trans area. I can definitely see how the exhaust would get in the way of that.
I understand completely, and the setbacks totally suck. At our shop, if I’m doing something that’s supposed to be easy, I’ll generally have a days worth of set backs. It just happens and all we can do is apologize to the customer.Yep, that’s it. Sorry, get a little flustered when I’m upset…
It will be worth the wait! Post up some photos to see the hardware when it is on the lift.Fortunately, my guy at the shop is a straight shooter and has been for his 21 years in business. That’s probably why he’s still in business especially in such a niche market in the relatively small area I live in. But… if you’re good, word of mouth keeps you going strong and he has no shortage of business (I had to book 6 weeks out). So, I’m definitely not mad at him at all. Like I say,I just get anxious and antsy cuz the anticipation kills me and I get so so excited!!
they noticed the front suspension parts I had in the trunk and offered to throw them in as well. Shootin for Wednesday. He actually called me back Saturday morning. they were in there working on it on a day off. How cool is that??Not much longer now. Totally worth it. Sit tight.
I do have 2 fresh sets of Nitto 555 Drag Radials in my workshop (305/45x17).IMO why spend all that money on the parts and the labor and not go to the strip? Just use a decent rear tire and not a super aggressive tire. With those mods, it should do really well. Shore you will not put up the best time but your MPH will give you an idea of the time it can run. Don't think I'm roasting you bro cause I'm not. I'm just a drag racer at heart and think everyone should try it no matter what you drive. Definitely an adrenaline rush.
Trap speed is wwhat dictates the power of the car. ET can come down to suspension setup, and driver. Nothing wrong with "making an ass out of yourself". If you do it means you are learning.I do have 2 fresh sets of Nitto 555 Drag Radials in my workshop (315/35x17).
so who knows, maybe someday I'll go make an ass out of myself and see what she's got in the quarter.
It depends on the strip. My local drag strip "Island" you can literally hot lap the car all night long. Where as englishtown you would only get 3 runs. Granted you always ran faster at englishtown since island didnt know what track prep was.. it was still more enjoyable going to the sketchy one with the weeds growing through the staging lanes and the wavy track.I like the sound of that! The fewer the better that way I can deny I was ever there and my painfully poor performance! BTW, do you only get one pass? Or is it pay/pass?
Thank you! That eases my anxiety tremendously actually because I live in orchard country and my mailbox is 1/10th mile away. It's a slight downhill, but if I start downhill and run it uphill (and tell my neighbor first; she'll be cool with it if I do)... maybe I can get that launch and a shift or two dialed in. Have to get her BF in on it since he's building a stock '74 Corvette.Bro we all make an ass out of ourselves the first few times down that 1320. Lord knows I did and if someone tells you different they are a MFn lier. Get yourself a dragy find a good road and start practicing launching the car with the Nittos and just run the 1/8 mile. The faster the 1/8 and 60 foot you will know you are getting better.
