you mean the suspension its dropped 3" lower then the rear?

depends on what suspension you have. forgot when we talked about it.

youll have to test and tune it to see how it works at the track. tuning the shocks or coilovers , which ever you have. see how the front end gets up and if it nose dives or not.

- 250ish HP is not alot of hp.... so i cant even hook well.

hit me up on AIM if you got it. its in my profile.

and yes the front is 3 inches lower than the rear its a full Qa1 set up coil-over front shocks in back all adjustable

hit the track and do some suspension tuning is probably the best bet.

Damn RACE CAR

Madscientist, why goto Byron on a weekend and get like 5 runs in the whole day. Goto GLD during the week and you can basically hot lap the whole night.

as long as you go to byron on a day where theres not many clubs or and mini event like jr dragsters or something, you should be fine.

weve went before and got 10 runs in and that was getting there at like 930 and leaving by like 4....
