New goodies!!!

So....i put in my new 8.8 with traklok and 3.73s in this weekend. Also added new lcas, adjustable uca, uca reinforced mount, lca relocation brackets, adjustable panhard, and roush springs. It sits nice and level and the gears are awesome. Let me tell you, the suspension upgrades made a huge difference. No wheel hop and plants the tires nicely on takeoff. Very pleased.
I want to get everyone's opinions on subframes. Ive been told they are not needed on the S197. Is this true?

It's a debate on if they do anything or not.. I would bet, people who don't see an improvement from them, probably bought the cheap eBay ones.. And people who bought good sub frame connectors, probably noticed a difference..

Re: New goodies!!!

The S197s are pretty stiff as is.

I guess what im trying to figure out is if its just adding dead weight or not. My idea is to completely box in the frame. By this i mean with lcas in back, an a arm brace connecting the front and the subframes running front to back. That should tie it all in to make it real rigid and not twist at all. Maybe it depends on how much power you are making. I suppose the more torque off the line would have more use for them. I think minor bolt ons you can get away without them. With FI i would bet they make a difference.
