It's test and tune. Have to build boost before launch. Decided not to use the bump box.

Thanks Joey,  we got a lot of work to do to get it where we are wanting to go.   We have 3.64 gears and need 3.15, and we need the get more rear shock extension.  Then we can add more boost. It's going to be a ride when it's done.

Andrew, this was the first recognizable thread from y'all in my watch list......kinda  of  hi-jack but was very interested in the photos of you at the challenge doing the AX in the sunbird. What do you do to go from 9 second blasts to dodging cones setup wise?

In reply to 759NRNG :

Bugzilla did the best at the Auto-X finishing 2nd and 6th. The Fiat finished 9th.  Both of these cars had alignment changes between the A-x and Drag events.  Changes included camber, caster and toe adjustments.

We did not change anything on the Sunbird. If it is brought back, we will add a front sway bar and much better tires.  We may consider toe changes.  The car has huge potential but we did nothing to help that area as our budget was used to help the drag time specifically.

Do you mean Cameron and Paula?

Driveshaft will be between $485 and $700 depending on the material (steel or aluminum).

What is a honyoke?  I don't know if that indearing or other.

Andrew my sincere apologies to Ms. Paula and Cameron.....Honyok is not exactly enduring at all only when used in the company of those that you know can take a smack upside the head and still be friends
