Different wheels in every photo. I love it 😂 I think the last photo is my favorite set. Lotta meat and the fitment is perfect.

What is your best ET/MPH?
This car has been a nightmare to drag race between breaking engine mounts, clutches, and transmissions. With a broken dogbone mount and slipping clutch it went low 12s at 122mph on the is38. When I finally got the car to cut a decent 60’ it EPC’d just after the 1/8 and I ended up running a 12.0 at like 95mph which is my PB ET lol. Haven’t ran it with the hybrid yet.

Sweet trap on just an IS38. When you killed 4th were you lifting or no? User error? I use NLS and I haven’t heard of many MT failures so I'm curious.
I’ve used no lift shift for years. 4th didn’t break as I was shifting or immediately after, I was about halfway through the gear and hit a big dip that put a ton of load on the drivetrain. It made 460wtq on the is38 so I was already pushing it.

R is what was on the car, G is the new one. The R spec is about a year old, journal bearing, and doesn't spool very quick. The G is ball bearing and a little smaller so should be better for my goals. Haven't done a full pull yet, but giving it 30% throttle or so the boost comes up very quickly, I'm pretty happy with it. Once I get it tuned I'm hoping to lay down a pretty decent 60-130.

Dropped the car off at a local UM dealer yesterday. Excited to get the car back, flex fuel will be nice to have lol. Also got the ET Street Rs and RSE05s on the front, just need to get the rear wheel situation sorted.

Your current wheel/tire setup looks hilarious :ROFLMAO:. The back wheels look like they’re on rails lol.

What are your plans with the rear wheels? Going back with RSE05s on the rear as well?
