    So, I am not familiar with fwd. I would have to assume that you are using some sort of limited slip drive train? Forgive my n00bness, the only fwd drive cars I've ever driven were a Geo and a Dynasty...

    I don't like this idea. With that power (projected 600whp) and slicks, this is a very bad idea, IMO.. when that axle breaks, what happens? The revs instantly shoot to the limiter, there becomes mad rotational speed in the gearbox as well, and is not a good "safety net", in my opinion.

    But im no neon guy, so this may be 'the norm' for the fwd big power streetcars.

    I'm not knocking it at all, just don't know the "in-thing" as to what the srt4 guys are doing. Albeit, I'm definitely no stranger to either big power, or drag racing, just I'm used to doing things differently..

    if an axle breaks the lsd takes off the power away from it and places it on the other but by then u already know somethings wrongs and your out of it. works very well for a lot of guys. most of the time its never needed as the axles are very strong as well. once you get the suspension dialed in as well as air pressure its very reliable.

    Well, I know how the LSD works, but still Apparently, it's a tried/well-used method, so good enuf

    i have video of it moving around but nothing at any speed. no shute needed. it won't be that fast. 9.49s or 150+mph is the cut off and then you need a parachute

    The braging right below to you for sure.

    I was reading modified mag in issue FEB 08, where a MR2 was making some good number. On his travel, the rear trailing arm broke while he was driving and the car was totalled. I'd hate for something to happen to you, because with that much power....it's pretty scarry. Remember, your car is very small and very light.

    Protect yourself...and get that roll cage in ASAP bro.

    Peace.

    Well the graph in the first page is from my car. The race gas numbers are low because I had a crack in the intercooler. Well after I make 3 post I will post some pics and my vid. Or go to youtube and search for srt-4 dyno pumpgas. Ghost3928 is my username on there.

    I did a search to see how many people have posted about the resaults. The weather is always nice over here, just wish we had a track still.
