We finished the car days before the end of racing season, so we only got a couple of shots at the racetrack. To complicate matters further, we had a full rollcage added to our car before starting the rearend build, and it was instantly apparent that it’s not an easy transition tuning the chassis on a rigid full-cage racecar with a fully adjustable suspension when you’re used to twisting, stock-body cars. The ultra-stiff new chassis hit the tires too hard, resulting in a lot of tire spin. Tuning the new chassis is going to require patience, some clutch savvy, and more patience! Our best e.t. was a 10.86 at 131 mph with 1.48 60-foot times and lots of tire spin. We should see low 10s, hopefully a 9-second run by year’s end, with low 1.3 60-foot times. See ya’ at the track!
