Hey Boosted when you installed the Race brace was the right side active exhaust damper operator in the way preventing the removal of that bolt? I don't imagine you replaced those 2-bolts did you? That smoke was pretty thick...hope you get some rain to put the fire(s) out.

Yeah, I reused the original bolts. I did have to drop the exhaust hangers and allow the exhaust to hang down so I could get the bolt out and back in. We are getting rain right now.... looks like 10 days straight. It's both good and bad. Good for getting the fires extinguished but bad because now I can't drive the SuperStock.... lol

Are you comfortable riding with the 295/45 in the front and 305/40 in the back?
I had that setup last month but it was weird and odd because the front was taller than the back.

I only put 140 miles on it with this combo and it doesn't seem weird at all, at least not yet. The tire is only .5" taller and I can't "see" a difference looking at the car from the side. It does steer smoother and I think that's because they don't scrub like the DR's did. I'll throw the 315/40ZR18 G2's on whenever they show up.

Fair enough. You clearly need more wheels and tires then.
Awesome collection! Funny story. About 6 months ago, I bought a set of wheels and tires anticipating driving in the rain and about a month ago, I felt I wouldn鈥檛 be getting my Super Stock this year so I sold them to a forum member. Of course 2 weeks later, I get a call from the dealer telling me my car arrived鈥. lol

That's because I am not satisfied with what it ran as I know there is still a lot left in it. 10.64 @ 128mph was the best out of 3 passes.

edit I forgot to mention that I did not use the chiller as I totally forgot about having it. Anyone know what the expected gains would have been had I used it? Warm 80+ degree day.
