Default Time to get the 60's down

Got my new UPR Pro Series rear suspension along with Strange 10 way adj. shocks/struts. Also, got a new UPR black billet shortie antennae and black billet 5.0 fender emblems.

NICE choices. I run the strange shocks/struts and I'm in the process of finishing up my full UPR suspension. My advice is to run -2 degrees of pinion angle, the front struts set to full loose and the rear shocks four clicks from full firm. After each run, go one click firmer on the rear until you start to spin, then back off one click (this is assuming you already have your ideal tire pressure and RPM at launch). Have fun with it man. Nothing is better for 60' times than the kind of mods you're doing now.

And now I need to get my UPR upper mount, UCA and spherical bearing in place...

I love the strange shocks struts. So much better than the stockers. Good luck on the new ETs.

Nice looking package code 3.

Folks like you and Diabolical have helped lead me in making my parts list for my stang. So I appreciate the sharing you guys have done.

BTW, Love tombstone as well, and this year is it's 20th anniversary.

Thanks Gary....

I'm gonna see just how deep I can get into the 11's with stock motor (except for tune) and air box.

And as far as Tombstone.....one of my favorite movies!!!

Ha! It would be nice. We'll see... If I could get my boss at the magazine to let me cover the race, I could probably swing it!

^^One of my favorite movies. This is my favorite scene-

"Ed, what an ugly thing to say. I abhor ugliness. Does this mean we're not friends anymore? You know Ed, if I thought you weren't my friend, I just don't think I could bear it."
