Yes. I am fighting traction issues but right now the car will run a 6.43 on a 150 shot progressed in very slowly. If I get my traction problem solved it should run consistent 6.25 with the current setup. I'm hoping to go 6 flat on a 200 shot.

The car comes off the line and plants the tires really hard but at about the 60ft mark the suspension unloads and I start to spin badly. As it sits I can only release the trans brake at around 2700 instead of 4500. I leave the line on motor only and begin bringing the juice in at around 1.4 seconds with progression to 100% over the next 3.

Keep in mind this is only a pump gas car that I can drive to work. The guys I'm going up against are all running 14.5-15.5 compression ratios and even though they say their cars are streetable they are never driven. I think I'm running pretty strong for what it is.

Where did you get those hood pins to lock the hood? Anywhere you know of that I could order them? I'm having trouble finding them. Thanks
