Lol! If your entire life is based on what people think of you on some Internet forum, then you have one sucky-ass life! Sorry, but your car was NOT voted as being the shizzle. I'm sorry if people don't think of you as YOU obviously do. Get over it and get laid. Pussy reduces stress when you find the right woman (or women, as I prefer)! :laughing:Well back to build and maybe educate JM on copying other's work Vs doing it your way, or maybe I'm just letting him know he should follow up on what he said/wrote, or correct it so it's not misleading to some of us who bother to have read it and was expecting due credit if they met all the stated rules posted....:rolling: :devil:
I am with You.Believe me, I understand what your telling me. What I want to do has been done with a street built C2 on 200 Tread wear narrow tires.
Difference is he did it with 650 RWHP and a car weight of around 3450 LBs with driver. 3.90 Rear gear, manual trans and he was able to peddle the car off the line for 1.50/1.60 60' times, but had to granny shift gears to keep from breaking rear tires loose when shifting gears. Painfull to watch him shift, knowing Car most likely could have ran in high 9s with slicks if he didn't have to granny shift it.
I'm thinking I'll need to try and get car in the 2700-2800 lb range with me in it do what I'm trying with HP I've limited myself too.
I'm fairly sure I can get car down to around 2800 lbs range (about 400 lbs less than stock curb weight) without me in it. What I'm worried about is weight roll cage will add to car, but at least most of it's added weight will be behind driver and on rear wheels.
Will have less engine weight as well as less chassis weight with LS engine an aftermarket chassis and suspension I'll be using. Trans's weight will be greater than stock.
Want help that car will have added weight of A/C and power windows, but it's a driver 1st...
Car's body may have a show car look to it, but car want even be close to being a real show car, just a driver.
