I figured you were running msd with a 2 step or similar. I have a speedo in my car and thats it. But i do try to datalog when i race. It records way more than i need to know. Pretty nice to look back at though.

I picked these up for about $50 each. I get great traction on my 1600 that doesn't build boost till 4500 rpm!

I always liked this look of this car. I don't know what the rear tires are but they look just right to me!

Haha! True. But I just like the look of it. Let's pretend it's just hidden behind that decklid!

Ive always loved the look of this car too...its even better in person!

Ive been eyeing the M&H DOT's lately...sounds like most have had really good luck with them. My 60 ft times are terrible and would like to drive them down with something a little stickier:
