Stacy, you're on the right track. IF you can get the car to stick I'd say you may eek out a 12 sec slip without cams or heads at that elevation but it's hard. People don't understand elevation and how much slower your cars run up high. If you stick with your plans either way you'll be flying quicker than the others around you in Lubbock.

If you want to road race this set up go with Strange Adjustable Shocks/Struts on all 4 corners and you'll be fine. This thread was geared more towards 1/4 Mile Times out of a street car so YES you can DD this set up. If we wanted a gutted drag car we'd be in the 11's with the same set up. Hell we almost went 11's with this set up once we put a new spec clutch in it! (Ran 12.05 in Houston with Long Tubes and a new clutch)

im going to give her hell friday night ive got my car on street tires down from a 14.7 to a 14.4 at 98mph so with the slicks I should be around a 13.6 now , just need my long tubes and suspension and maybe just maybe I could eek out a low 13 even in the heat.. how much timing can I put in a tune with race gas and actually see some numbers drop or have you ever messed with the timing on our cars? thanks for the help and this thread...

I was thinking about going with a 70mm TB instead of 75mm, would 75mm be better at the lower HP? Because i know that you can end up hurting your power if you overkill your TB.
