death to Sessanta

Swapped in some GC camber plates yesterday which allowed me 18x9 w 255/35/18 up front. Put the old 235 Vredestein's on the back for some rapage.

Now time for the 255's on the rear........:help




got to love a quick spooling 35r setup. I can modulate anywhere from 2500 to redline and keep the tires squealing in delight.

this was on low boost on the spring (13psi) as the 235's were downright scary even in 4th gear when running ~17psi.

================================================== ========

Stupid fun video.......had to do something today to pass away the Winter car boredom.

Yes I know exactly what you're talking about.

My favorite car of all time was my '68 GTO which originally had four drums and the turning radius of an aircraft carrier, along with a wet noodle chassis.... Wasn't blazingly fast by today's standards, couldn't turn for shit either.... But it was just a really fun car to drive, to work on, to listen at idle, to smell the carb'd powertrain smells.... Mmmmmmm

yes it does!

if its above 2,800rpms or so its insta-boost. Above 3,300 rpms it doesnt even feel turbo'd.....just feels like a beast.

at the end of that video you can tell how responsive it is when i'm pedaling 2nd gear.....every blip got the car out of boost but its right back into it lighting up the tires again.

no not really.

there is a lot in it.

power mods are a stock motor with thicker MLS headgasket and o-ringed block. gt35r w 60lb injectors, HFS 6osa pumping in meth. custom tuning and all good hardware. Full custom 3" SS vbanded exhaust.

a few photos while I still had the Mickey Thompsons on it. Now going back down in ride height with Michelin PSS 255 on each corner. i dont think the 255 will have a chance.....







Uber rare forged Rc-J's....18x9 on each corner....17.6lbs per.
