    So it's been a while since I've been on here so I figured I would give you guys a little sneak peak of what is to come and the progress that I've been making on the car. I ended up buying a daily driver so I can start hammering on it a little hard than I already was. haha My goals are in search for a consistent high 11 second car so naturally being as broke as I am right now, having to pay for an upcoming wedding, I decided to go nitrous with it. I picked up a brand new in box NX plate kit that I will try to cram a 125 shot down her throat. Which should hopefully, with my set up, put me in the lower 400rwhp/520-530tq range. On top of that I picked up a set of SVE drag wheels with Hoosier 26/11.5/15 in the rear and 17x4.5 with M&H front runners to clear my cobra brakes. I'll be making an updated build thread that if you guys are interested you can take a look at. But more things are definitely in store for her in the next couple months.

    found a new resting place for her while I'm doing the build.

    I don't because I sold it out of the upr kit when I got it because I was driving it on the street at the time. Now I'm really regretting it. Haha but it's on the list of things-to-do.

    haha yeah it scared me at first too, but as long as you're careful on the street to avoid potholes, its fine. I'm sure you'll be on alert anyway with those beautiful new wheels!

    That setup looks killer.


    If if ever get new wheels, I'll probably go with those in a chrome finish. They look so good.

    Thanks man! I can't wait to see your new set up. They also make those wheels in a dark stainless that looks pretty awesome.
