Those slicks and skinnies worked like a charm!  Is that a 1.65 sixty?  The slip is a little blurry.  On a dynojet I'd put you around 480whp.  Nicely done!

My best on street tires driving off the line is a 1.76 sixty and 11.19 and I'm at 465/450.

That's fast, congrats!  I was trapping 127 with 475 RWHP.  My car is kinda a pig though.... needs to go on a diet. 

I should rent those slicks from you to see if i can get low 11's...

Car looks great man. Mind sharing the specs on your Weld/Hoosier setup? Did you have to grind down brake calipers to get them to fit? I know many have had to do that due to clearance issues. If this is in the thread already, my bad.

Thanks, I didnt have to grind any brake calipers, just had to use a socket cap screw on the trailing arm.

Specs are:
15x9.5 6.5bs"
15x4.5 2.5bs" (with 8mm spacer)

This is ideal fitment for rolled fenders

Tires are 25x5 fronts and 26x11.5 Hoosier QTP's. They grip amazingly on the strip, I would bog from a 5k clutch dump
