Default Confirmed - mid 10 second true street car

Finally reached my goal of running mid 10's while keeping my car perfectly street friendly. Driven to and from the track, made no changes. In 2200 da I went 10.53, 10.59, 10.47, then 10.89 heat soaked. It's an awesome feeling and FINALLY got to run a gtr which was my 10.47 run. I treed him and he only went 10.79 so my first race with one was an easy win. I'll be getting a friend of mine to send me the vid of me running the gtr from outside so you can actually see the car(stupid me asked for the left lane and didn't move the gopro).

Now where do I go from here, put a slick on it so I can really launch it without spinning, more power, both, leave it as is. I have no clue what's next for it but all I do know is I'll never be able to leave it alone lmao.

Congrats on the new PB. Your car is wicked fast. If it was me I'd have to shoot for 9s being your only 4/10ths away.

Nice work, Colin. When I talked to your boss last week he and I agreed you have some left in her once the air clears a bit more. Car is sick, man. Keep up the good work!

^ can you guys get some good pricing on your products better than what you list online? I'm not overly proud of my lower control arms and will probably pick up a set of yours over winter.

Thanks for the kind words fellas! 9's would be awesome but I'd really have to step up my driver mod imo along with traction/power upgrades. We'll see what happens over winter lol

Great job on your solid mid to low 10's street car. Very impressive.

I'm with blue on this, as 9's are only a couple ticks away. All you have to do is...............

Driver mod
Weight savings
Good track prep

You have 9 second power, but with the manual tranny it's slowing you down.

I say congrats and focus on the free things to save weight like removing seats and any extras.

Got some time slips?
