do you have subframe connectors or reinforced your torque boxes? if not now would be a good time to do it

dont have sub frames, like i said i was considering getting them since i have all this done to the engine i know it would be a wise decision to get them. but i gotta ask what are the torque boxes? [&:] i know it may make me look dumb but eh...

you could pull a wheelie with a completely stock motor if you really wanted to. i saw a f body runnin like 14.5 ish hangin the wheels and almost draggin the bumper every time (to the point where i couldn't see light between the bumper and the ground from where i was in the stands). sh*t, just from coming out of the water box the front suspension was completely unloaded and when he hit the brakes right after that he almost dug the front bumper into the ground. all you really need is a real solid launch and a suspension/chassis thatworks to well to transfer weight. im sure you kno that pullin the wheels off the ground isnt the most efficient way to get down the strip since ur taking ur power and goin up instead of forward. but i guess it would be cool non the less good luck by the way
