A small suggestion: You have a tendency to spray and pray for cures here. Drag racing is systematic, make a change, try it out, undo it or move on to the next change, try it out. Boring, slow, systematic but, at least you know what does what.

Throwing a whole bunch of parts and changes at a car at the same time is great for a timeline build for a Pinks show but, isn't the best approach, as you're just meh? What's wrong and what did I do?

Even if what you're doing works you won't know really why, which isn't helpful in avoiding future errors.

No, it's made for a road course. Roush is a "race car" and not so much a drag car. However, I'm sure it would be better than stock.

Now I haven't seen his for my own eyes, but when I was touring at Roush, they were telling me about how the stage 3 takes the GT500 on a quarter mile. Even though the GT500 has the horsepower, the suspension helps them plant the power.

I don't know the true value of that, but just thought I would chime in on it.

I would hope it does, but it isn't just suspension that allows this. The RS3 weighs 300 lbs less than the GT500 and also runs 3.73 gears. The GT500 runs 3.31 gears.

13. The 12 only has 10 more hp than the RS3, not very impressive to beat with suspension upgrades lol

I'm going to point out the obvious, just to make myself feel better:

These wheels are not direct drill, right? Meaning you need to use washers? You got those and the hubcentric rings, right? It is also strongly recommended you don't use acorn nuts to hold these on, shank style nuts should be used.

No you don't need washers or hubcentrics on those wheels. They are direct drilled. That's one huge reason they got taken off the market real quick because I am pretty sure they stole the design from bogart. Don't quote me on that though.
