Check this baby out...

Way better than my old setup. The solid lines is the current setup on my car. The dotted graph is possibly what I was making before( from another vehicle with similar OLD jackson racing setup)

Jose,  how the hell are you going to put that power to the ground?  Cutting out the fenders and going with the 315's in the front?  Did you get a new diff yet?

On the street 255 tires are holding really well.  The true benefit comes from being able to drive this a bit better... I foresee a ton of time decreased on prosolo starts and areas where moving quickly from point a to b matters.  The car already handled well so not too worried on that area... Somehow the braking improved as well. The new vacum is stronger and seems to help power the brakes faster and stronger.  I removed front camber as well and gained much needed traction back.

I did not get my usual funding for racing this year, the clutch LSD did not make it in. :cry:

Double adjustable shocks did not make it in either...  :roll:

Fenders... are getting custom made... They are comming out nice.

275's are faster than 315.  315 wastoo much grip on the front and slows fast transitions too much.  Off the line grip was awsome but that is where it stops with 315.

One more interesting thing... with the extra power(torque)  i found it quite interesting how well the rear end gets planted on fullthrottle offset transitions... that was way cool.

Yours will be quick once you sort out the front shocks.

What a freaking work out that course was... with my car at least.  my whole upper body is sore.  

Lightweight was the best way to go on that course, and well skilled too. A few ripped a 44 on street tires and stock power compared to many.

Note to Novices and amateurs : This Goes to show that skill always have a great part on your times.  So those that were whining that they did not have more power or the car this and that... should look on to their skills first then the car.  (that includes me)

Fellow Drivers,  I have put so much effort and money to get the car to this point. I hope you guys understand I am not being mean or selfish(maybe a little selfish) if I don't share my car as I used to.

I have learned from the past two events that my car will wear everything really fast with its new setup and will become rather expensive to support two drivers. Drive shafts and tranny are a weak point and very expensive on my car. Lets not even mention tires.

Hope this is taken well.  Let it rip!

I don't blame you.  I have had such bad luck with stuff breaking on my car that I don't think I would want to risk a codriver either.  Good luck with keeping it going and getting faster - now get some bigger tires for it!
