how light are those cars? I know they are lighter than the 92-99, maybe from the weight difference between the 2000+ and the 96-99 and the track times we can figure out about what that car will run, assuming everything works.

Now you need to start modding

Does your ABS work Dark Shadow? I'd like to actually drive a car from that gen with a working ABS system to see how the feel differes from mine.
are you sure your abs pump is good? cuz i know my accumulator is getting old, but damn the brakes are still excellent on mine, in fact i just had the car past 110 a little while ago and had to slow to 25 REALLY fast (was about to miss an exit) and damn that car pitched forward and felt like it would have stopped on a dime, and i only smelled brakes for like 2 seconds. actually i have done this alot and the pads/rotors still arent warped w0000 h0000
