yeah... i guess i was pretty stupid thinking that other people really raced minivans...
here'* the trans sport forum:
at this point i've replaced the plugs with NGK'*, the wires with custom fit 8mm accels, fitted a free flowing exhaust with moroso mufflers, and just today gutted the hood to leave just the outer fiberglass skin attched with hood pins. i've also got a second set of tires for race only. the stock 205'* are pretty much useless and i can break them free even from a roll. the 235s ought to take care of that.
not including the minimal weight reduction the van has pulled a 16.9. this includes the near bald 205s and transmission with no vacuume lines attached. both situations have been remedied. i hope to have the van back on the strip by next wensday night. we'll see what it can do.
