    I'm about to make some upgrades to my suspension.. My primary goal is to keep streetablity but I'm only worried about straightline performance. So I know drag springs and what else. Another k member is already in the mail. I heard you can remove the quad shocks to. is that supposed to help ET's? will that also let me run a fatter tire. I wanted to run like 10 inch wide 295's outback. let me know

    a wider rim/tire combo isnt always better for ET's. unless your making a ton of power they might actually slow you down. i think its every 1 pount of rotational mass is equal to 10pounds on the chasis. and most the populat 17x10.5 or 18x10.5 wheels are very heavy. if you have a stock set of 16" wheels you could get some track only tires.

    adjustable shocks, adjustable rear control arms, panhard bad, subframe connectors, drag springs or coilovers all that stuff would help bring the ET down
