That being said, the drag strip will be the better test so it seems like you have that covered!


Agreed, if you can do it all in the same day, well at least few hours you can certainly appreciate the before and after. This however was a longer build so before and after would have been weeks apart. People just get so heated over it, just not worth it to me. I did some Dragy though today and the car did well. Lots of tire spin and slightly up hill netted 3.66 zero to sixty. Need better tires and warmer temps would help too, 49 degrees

Let me know if you take it to the strip! I'd love to tag along. Our builds are so similar at this point. I just haven't gone turbo. Oh, and I'm manual. Planning to do turbo late summer at this point.

I wish someone would do no-lift shift!

Great build Beaker!

Thank you sir. Itís a very nice upgrade to what I had before. Iím very happy. Had all four tires spinning today and I managed a best 3.66 zero to sixty using the dragy device. Shmoo is in the top ten spot right now. Need better tires!

What tires are you thinking? Mind if I ask where you did your launch?

Seems like everyone is using this dragy app. It looks cool and seems like a great way to get measurements.

I have a feeling it would cause me a speeding ticket or two though. Lol.
