well I just finished doing the rear suspension again( wanted it a little lower in the rear and I am now playing with a bead roller to get the trunk to look better and adding an anti roll bar to keep it level. I have been running the old NOS jet chart (250 hp = N93/F102) and I just found out about the new recommended tune ups so we will find out soon what she is gonna run.,

that Induction Solutions kit should really make a big difference. Steve is one of the best around from everything i have read and heard.

the rear suspension lost the bottom leaf and the sliders were relocated as they were almost bottomed out at the back of the spring. Also added QA1 single adjustable shocks. Im a little scared of those new jet combos but the pistons are thermal coated so they should be ok.
I have already signed up for pinks in bristol but the NHRA stuff might require a real tech inspection unlike the pinks events and my chassis isnt certified and I dont have an NHRA license either.

Hopefully...

with the suspension changes and the antiroll, the car will pick up 2 tenths just getting away from the "pretzel look"...:party0031:
And, maybe you won't have to use a torch on the N2O bottle!!:eek::D

Ahhh. youve seen me in action! lol! actually last time out i had the shocks on but adjusted wrong. lost 2/10 in the 60 ft from tirespin so I know the car will go 9.70's on 1 kit. hoping the antiroll bar and the lower stance will help it go even faster.

There are shocks on the back!!!!!!!!!!!!:confused0006: LOL
I've seen plenty of coil spring cars twist like that but cant remember a leaf spring rolling around like that. My Chevelle stock suspension use to do pull like that, fun to drive
