I just saved a bunch of money on my insurance by switching to Geico, like 378 dollars for 6 months. My down payment is 270 something now, not sure what the monthly payments will be. total is like 1070 something for 6 months, so go figure, that is for my GT and my Ranger Splash. Looks like its going to be about 160 a month after the original 270 dollar slaughter, lol.
i'm about to break into the 14's n/a. no promises, but i should be very close. with traction, it's definitely possible. i ran 15.8 stock, then 15.7 with exhaust and baaad shifting but good launches (2.26 60's).
i have 25% UD pulley, mac shorties (a waste, but i have them, so i'll mention it), dual exhaust (2 1/4"), b&m ripper shifter, 8.8 rear w/ 4.10s, tlok, 225/60/15 tires, and some other bolt ons i've since forgotten. i think i left out some go fast mods there. brandon, do you remember by any chance? :?: i hate being so forgetful.
3160lbs w/o driver (just removed my power driver's seat :headbang:, but just added 30lbs with the new rear end ) i weigh 160lbs.
'00 v6 5spd w/ a good launcher and shitty shifter.
Geico dropped me from what would have been like 1450 with GMAC to 1070 with them for the same coverage or better. Thats for my 95 Ranger Splash and the 99 GT convertable, they even know its got about 500 dollars worth of performance :shock: mods, uhhh, perhaps I underestimated that just a little, not much though.
The insurance on my Stang alone is $2100+ a year. All together with a Porsche (Dad got 2 tickets the first week, ones off the other still on) and Grand Cheorkee (1 accident, weather, why is that accounted against you?) The only reason i dont have a V8 is because of the damn insurance companies :evil:
gears wont help 99 ups NEARLY as much but it is a nice improvment, if you want to run 14s in a 99 up manual you will need to shave off .6 or there about, gears, tlok, pulley, cai, exhaust should get you right at .6 off your times, in a manual you will need to get another .4 off the times or .5 a tq converter will do this.
