Whats Next?

I have a 2014 gt/cs (3.73 gears) with a offroad x-pipe, JLT CAI, custom dyno tune and LCA's. I have been thinking about getting a aluminum driveshaft or a set 18x10 wheels with a set of drag radials. I hear people say they knock off 2 tenths of a second in the quarter mile with a new driveshaft. Is this correct? Also, would a set of 18x10 wheels with drag radials fit on my car without any other mods? They are getting ready to open up an 1/8 mile track about 10 minutes from my house so i want to make my car a little faster. Feel free to comment on any other mods you think i should invest in. Don't really want to do long tubes just yet because i would have to buy a new mid pipe. Does anyone know of an 18" wheel that looks similar to the 19" cs wheels?

A one piece driveshaft will require an adjustable UCA. You may also want relocation brackets.

You didn't say if you lowered your car or not. If yes then you will want an adjustable Panhard bar.

Also, consider getting a bouncy head hoola girl for your dash or a flaming dice for the rear view mirror. Lol that's good for at least 10hp

How bout a Class IV trailer hitch with a 7-pin wire harness. Or one of those cool lookin' off - road cold air kits with a plastic snorkel that comes up over the roof line of the car?

Now that's an idea. I don't know why I haven't thought about that before

Yeah a single piece DS will result in an off pinion angle. Although I red about one that supposedly doesn't require resetting the angle with an UCA.
