Need your best opinion

Alright I understand everyone wants a "wheelstand!" And I understand that's not what you want coming off the line. But as of right now we're trying to get my car out there and advertised. And no one wants to see a picture coming off the line like a 4cylinder... They wanna see the tires in the air. So my question is I have a 94 Z28 LT1. The car is built up well into the 600's, has 3:91's, 2800 stall, Edlebrock front struts and all other suspention is stock. What can I do to put it in the air a good 6-8inches?

Re: Need your best opinion

Horsepower means nothing if it doesn't hook. What ET and MPH does the car run? It would be helful if you post a timeslip with all the incrementals: 60 foot, 330, 1/8, 1,000 foot, etc.

+1 on getting the car to hook. Slicks and supension. Sub frame connectors, lower control arm relocation brackets, Wolf rear sway bar, 8 point roll bar. This will tie the car together. IMO the car will need to leave harder than what the 2800 stall will allow. Converting to a t350 or t400 with a trans brake may be required.

I agree with Steve and Kazman , I'll add a -2.5 deg. pinion angle and the right shocks really helps too.

Any front weight reduction you can manage will also help.

Re: Need your best opinion

You have a PM. Apparently, I am not cleared to attach pictures. Basically, you need more gear and more converter.

You can only include pictures by entering the IP address for where they are located on the internet. You cannot attach the actual photo directly to a post. No one can.

But.... CZ28 provides you with the ability to add an album to your profile, upload the photos there, and then you can link them.

How to upload and post pictures / images here on CamaroZ28.Com!

Re: Need your best opinion

steve u got cowl tracs they will make it wheel stand or just tote tires. Ive driven my brother BB vega wheel stands aren't fun ... u cant see if ur going to the guardrail or straight. best 60ft I got was a 1.32 with the back tires.
