Looks great Heath! I had a few hours worth of a layover in Atlanta, all I could think about was "damn, I should've called Heath for a ride if I was gonna sit here THIS long!"

I wonder if this added drop will help with track times at all?

Man, I wish you would've called me. The airport's only about a hour away from me. I would've drove down there in a heartbeat to get to meet you face to face. I doubt it will help with track times any. Because before I was running about a 3/4" drop in the front and a 4.25" in the rear. But I had 26" tall tires on the front. Now I've got about a 2.5" drop in the front with 29" tires, so the front end sits about the same as it did with my old track wheels/tires. I think the next thing I'm going to concentrate on is aerodynamics, and chassis setup in my quest for faster 1/4 mile times. I don't really want to add much more power at all on the factory tranny, I consider myself pretty lucky I've made it this far on the stock tranny.

Yeah I'm kickin' myself I didn't think of it ahead of time.

Ever thought of makin' a 4-link to get the power to the ground a bit better? I'm with you, power is great, but there's a lot of other things to do to make quicker times. Yer already in the 12's with yer setup, and that's awesome.

Are you gonna use this wheel/tire setup for the track as well, or do you still have a pair of "sticky micky's" for the rear?

Sticky mickeys.LOL I like that. I'll still have to use those at the track. These toyos do a good job for regular radials, but there not even close to comparing to the MT drag radials. I'd love to go with a 4 or 5 link setup in the future. But I don't really think it'll be necesary for me for a while. I hope one day I'll be making enough power to justify a 4-link, but I don't think it'll be anytime soon. I've already been pondering on the idea of using the rear setup on the new rams, it should work pretty good. That's basically the same setup that's on my TBSS, and it hooks really good.
