    Na no chiller mate. Can’t really justify the $6k at least for the set up I want. The car has enough power to run a 10, given the 131mph. Just need a 1.6 or maybe 1.5 60FT and that’s a 10.

    Car is booked in for the shockworks suspension that Sandman suggested. See if I can set the rear up a bit better for the launch.

    Mint SSV mate! You should put the SF01s on all round, looks tough (I’m biased though have them on mine)

    Have you looked at upgrading your rear control arms, toe rods etc to get the power down better at the drags?

    Thanks mate. I have looked at some stuff from BMR in the US but they wanted crazy money for shipping. Do you know of anything locally?

    its is unfortunately, Superpro do make the same gear I believe but net searches doesn’t bring much up (which tells me that they might not make them anymore). Next option is getting some fabbed up (probably be around the same price as the BMR gear with shipping $$). I’m interested to know how you get on with your shockworks coilovers and how they compare to XYZs.

    It’s a shame because from what people have said the BMR gear makes a world of difference. Yea will see how we go mate.

    If you lean on the clutch a little more you can do a second gear launch which should give you a better 60ft, first gear is extremely short which doesn't work too well on the strip with big power.

    Haven’t thought about that. Have you tried this before?

    Yeah, it works but you need a good clutch. I've got 440rwhp and a standard clutch so I didn't lean into it too much.

    It even says in the owners manual you can take off in second for "economical take off driving" but I reckon the taller ratio would be good for the 60ft.
