not bad! Tons of engine space for a proper header/turbo and it looks like you need suspension upgrades first!

Nice job. Could have gotten that motor a lot further back/lower though.

Since last update, the front had four coils removed, cut front jeep coils in the rear to get me by till I can get some coiover sleeves, and a fathood with haggered gt pain on it.

First drift event the car held up good to the abuse, anyways, some pics that make it look like I know how to drive.

Went to an 1/8th mile drag race session tonight, one of those (come race here instead of the street) things.

best run was a 9.97 @ 74.68mph

On old winter tires and 9psi of boost

Was pulling on most of the cars there. Been going to these things for a couple years and this is the first car where i actually won more races then lost races. Felt good for a change

The airdam is a Razzi made for a dodge shadow. I see the tilting, and it kinda bugs me, but hey, it's only zap-straps.

The rearend is indeed just a welded stocker. I've done lots of burnouts and clutch kicks and hard shifts at the dragstip and it hasn't broken yet(knock on wood)

Thanks for the compliments, theres a import car show this weekend, should be interesting to get some ricer kids opinions and see some reactions.

Oh, and the front lip gets the car looks form lotsa girls, probly guys to, but I'm not worried about them. Then again, a kid with down syndrome gets lotsa looks too.

you wont blow that diff then if its welded. unless the welds break. you might break a axle if your getting lots of grip in a tight corner. i never broke one i love my welded diff so far its been two years.
