Default Latest Mod...

Anyone notice anything new in my mod list? Been thre for a couple days getting the bugs worked out of it. Pictures will come probably after Pontiac Nationals this weekend. I also picked up a set of 16 inch rims and some Hoosier QTP'*. With some good weather (75'*) this weekend I'm hoping for a new PB...

Of course we noticed the 'Next Generation'

Guess you're going to huff and puff down the track now :P :P

The Gen V, the LSD and QTPs are very nice additions. I predict a conservative 60' time of 1.85 seconds and an ET of 13.4 or better depending on conditions. All things being good you could go 1/2 second faster.

Looking forward to seeing pictures and results...go get 'em tiger

Cheers,

Nice.

What were your costs involved, just curious.

BTW, we HAVE to get together next month, I can't make it to Nationals :(

We'll tear it up man.

GL this weekend!

LSD = Limited Slip Differential

It keeps power to both wheels instead of one eliminating 1 wheel burnouts and premature failure of the tranny.

QTP = Slicks made by Hoosier

Slick tread soft rubber compound to help grip the track.
