Something is wrong.
Yes something is wrong, you dont know the car. lol
Stock car, 15s, thats cute.
The car ran 13'[email protected]
+ with an AOD and a full interior.
It now has no interior, at all, and I've started cutting things out. Its got the stiffness of a cage and the direct power planting of a TKO and 4:30's out back. They snap, they snap consitently, regularly, and predictably. With an auto, you've got some shock absorbtion. With this TKO and the clutch I've got, it goes to the wheels, it does not stop at GO, it does not collect $200. I'm officialy out of the drag racing game. Trust me, ask the previous owner, he'll tell you the same. He snapped them weekly with just an OE mustang T5, though. He went back to the AOD because all he did was drag race.
My only option is to run ****ty times on my street/rain tires, and I'm not wasting them. It's not a drag car, its a road racer, and it will be in action this weekend at mid ohio. It's just not made for launching. Dont give me crap about not racing, I've raced this thing literaly hundreds of miles (I've got thousands of mile under my belt in many cars), I'm not joing to break it for the sake of masturbating at a drag strip.
PS Keith, I've got 3 sets, and a set of Cobra's in the car. I'm just not going to waste them just to impress people. I'm not whining like a *****, I'd be happy to race anyone, but on a real track. There is also my 6 years of experience with National Trails itself, and I'll never put my car on the track there again. These are the sentiments of a great many locals, it's the worst NHRA track in the country, and anyone who races them will tell you the same. Also;
*Twice I've slid sideways through coolant in the traps because their "safety crew" didn't catch it.
*I saw a Lightning burn for almost 2 minutes straight because none of their fire extinguishers worked.
*I've see countless bad accidents and fore from cars that never should have made it past tech. (luckily this event will have its on tech people)
Dont get snippy with me, you know I race.
I've got hundreds of passes to my credit, that's just over now, the car isn't set up for it.
I've also got an old set of BFG Comp T/A's on SC rims that everyone is welcome to use.
Martigan, you want a TCi 3500 stall converter? Came out of the cougar, I'm selling it stupid cheap...like 4 cans of Similac cheap.
