then adding the cage so i expet to be 2900lbs race weight (with me in it)

good results im realy hoping for haha i wanna hold some records

i wanna steal pats fastest alltrac in north america

and its gonna be a battle with ron and his dsm he's going for 850+awhp
but refuses to run slicks so i should destroy him he has a best of 10.6@141mph

well see what happens but i actully have to finish my car first
i would go with a bigger turbo but i want decent spool since im gonna be doing some road racing also :D

I'm no expert, and have never built a car like this, so take my opinion with a grain of salt...but...

I think you don't have near enough clutch for what you are trying to do. I'd look at some of the better twin-disk clutches. Jeff Fazio and his "Hyde" racecar was running less power than you will be, through a RWD platform, in a lighter car, and he was primarily a road racer, and he eventually had to go to a Tilton Twin-disk. Some of the high-horsepower supra guys use RPS carbon-carbon. HKS also makes a twin disk for the 3sgte.

I wouldn't put a BBK on a drag car. It is really just extra weight for that application. Alot of Drag Supras actually downgrade their beefy turbo brakes to stock NA brakes for this reason. Good pads, rotors, lines and fluid is all you really need. If you are going so fast that you can't stop within the allotted space, you need a parachute, not a BBK. :evil:

Coilovers aren't really necessary either. In general you want alot of "squat" in a drag car to help weight transfer and traction. So you don't generally run super-stiff suspension. Darin from Titan Motorsports (TitanDarin on supraforums) was running low 9's/high 8s on STOCK suspension. OTOH, coilovers probably won't hurt you, they just aren't totally necessary for the application. Might want to pop on over to DSMtuners and see what the AWD guys in the 10's are running for suspension.

Unless you just want it for looks, you really only need one race seat. You can remove the passenger seat entirely when you go to the track. Passengers generally won't find race seats very nice to sit in.

If you are going to be running slicks, I'd ditch the Motegis (not great wheels anyway) and get some proper drag wheels such as Weld or Bogarts. MUCH lighter. But you can't use them on the street. I'd also probably drop down to 15" size. If you want to save money here, I saw a thread on the DSM forums where some guys were using Rota Slipstreams in 15". $500 for a set of four and weigh about 11lbs ea.

Lastly, this is really a personal thing, but I would get different gauges. I had an autometer fail on me. ProSports look good and aren't as pricy as the high end Defi/Greddy stuff. Although it really isn't a big deal for a track slut.

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing you break that record! Good luck!

well i forgot to mention this is also a daily driver hahaha i know it's not the best but its my passion but being 18 and a welding apprentice i cant afford 2 vehicals especially dumping nearly 40k into my trac hahaha and the 95% of these parts are already bought including the gauges
and i cant afford higher end gauges as of right now
and previously stated i will also be in a time attack comp i like road racing
so i need the big brakes id and thats why i went with the 35r instead of a 40 or 42r for road racing i need the somewhat quick spool and the stiff suspiension im going to be buying some softer coils for the rear aswell
and for the clutch i didnt plan on making so much power so soon haha
so ive alreay bought the clutch im going to run it seen if she blows
i will be upgrading to an exady triple disk carbon on carbon clutch eventully or i might sell the act and buy it right away but money's tight ill see
and for the track i will have the passenger seat removed :D
and for the slicks im buying a set of centerline 15x8 =)

and im trying to get my pro license and get into some real racing maybe get some sponsers (fingers crossed)

i hope my gauges dont fail
and yea it's not the most practical daily driver

and thanks for the support

Sorry, I didn't see your post about using it for road course work. Well, dual-use setups are a little harder to manage because you have to make some compromises and spend more money.

I'm not sure how money can be an issue when you are blowing 40k? :shrug: If money is an issue, should you, well, not be spending 40k on your car?

Anyway, even though the clutch is brand new, I'd take a loss and sell the clutch and put in an RPS twin disk. The ACT WILL fail at those power levels.

If you are going to be building it for road course work, you need to decide what class you will be running in and make sure your car meets the class requirements. There can be alot of little things that can trip you up. For instance, alot of classes don't allow lexan. Also, road course racing can be expensive even at the hobbyist level. You will go through tires/brake pads and rotors/fuel at an astounding rate. Not to mention track fees. Have you budgeted for this?

Wow, that looks fantastic. You may have already had it translated or don't care but in Latin Left hand of god is "Sinistra Dei." Good name for a car. :) because in Latin left handed can almost mean something evil hence sinister....However it can also mean unlucky, or having to do with sexuality..... Yes I'm a dork. Sorry. Great project though!

40 k is around what i will have spent when im finished prob a bit more
but that's not having a life at all so i can build(afford) the car :D
working 120hours every 2 weeks doesnt hurt either
but anywho i bought myself some late christmass presents

RCI aluminum fuel cell
aeromotive a1000 fuel pump
secondary holly fuel pump for the nitrous
aluminum battery box
10,000rpm monster tach with shift light
external killswitch

waiting for my 1600cc injectors to come in
waiting for my internals to come in so i can send out my block for machineing head to be cleaned so i can port it
waiting for my rmr intake to come in
waiting for my 75mm bbk throttle body to come in

im pretty sure i will eventully go all fiberglass
but not till i can afford it :P

I wonder who will have the fastest 165 when this is all said and done between you and Klas. :roll: Definately this will be a car worthy of being on the cover of a mag.

Why didn't you clock your turbo compressor so you would have a shorter hot pipe for you IC?
