ppb is for dyno charts!!!!!!

No data logs, no traps, and certainly no discussion of getting out of the hole or putting power to the ground.

Go dynocharts or go home!!!

I agree with a few of you this is the PROVEN power section first a mod comes in intentionally posting in the wrong section (which anyone else would have their thread locked within an hour) and there is no proof, so slips or ban

This is the best place for those of us who are drag racing our cars to see this new product....... for example.....

I type in www.nasioc.com, then i click forums, then i come to the ppb, then i go to my local boards. About once a week i look at the built motor section or the classifieds but i always check things out here. And i am very interested in seeing more about this product.

For some reason there is no drag race area under Motorsports. I have asked... Or even a darg race setup sub forum under PPB would be nice.

Mods always get a double standard, go to any forum. one of the perks of being a mod.

aside from that, dropping a 60' by 2 tenths isn't a big deal, but going from 1.6 to 1.4 with one magic piece is.

just look at all the fastest sti's they are traction limited and at best doing 1.5's in manual box with slicks or DR's.

I could see going from 1.5 to 1.4 with more rear end squat, but it would be easier to just remove the front sway bar.

Heh I used to unbolt the front swaybar in my 89 T-T/A. I hooked a 1.80 on retreaded street tires.

rofl... I remember the retread days now... Having to put like a half pound on a rim for it to balance out

Ahh those were the good old days

Front swaybars can bind the front lower arms from drooping thus limiting the rotation of the car keeping less weight from transferring to the rear.


key word = can

1.4 sixty foot is nothing to joke about, i'd like to see the slip...if so, go out and buy this !!!


stiff coilovers=not enough squat for a good rip out of the whole so this thing IF proven can help and allow better 330' and 1/8th

yes but I can also see the mounting bracket bending over time like that...it won't have support at the actual loading point.

Don't get me wrong, it would have the same results but I also know you'd decrease the factor of safety on your suspension mounting point...I wouldn't want to find out when/if it fails.

I don't receive hook up on any of these parts
