And i was figuring he is probably 200 pounds heavier so that would be around 1.5-2 tenths. Anyone have any input?
I believe Smellbird had rockers on that run.
Yea that is what i am saying. The same setup as he had and adding a 3 inch DP. With a lighter car does it seem possible to knock 2 tenths off of his time. Assuming the i could have a launch and track prep, conditions, ect all the same. So essitionally what i am saying would a 3 inch dp and around 200 pounds weight decrease equal 2 tenths in the quarter or not. See my plan was to do that setup and then if and when ZZP unleashes the *** kit i was thinking about adding that and a nice beefy tranny with taller gears and hoping for mid 14'*. Does something that sound like a realistic idea or no?
