If its slow they might be able to. Ive noticed when they are busy the quality of alignment seems to be not as good. Im not really sure if i would want to mess with caster. I would think that would just put extra strain on the bushings? Im a noob when it comes to all the alignment stuff lol

I'm guessing you won't have a problem with it. The only thing would be if you tightened the traction arms too short or too long and then the LCA will be pulled in or pushed out and it should be adjusted back to stock. Might be worth at least keeping an eye out for on the alignment printout.

Got my alignment done today. Even after reinstalling the motor and putting on the traction bar the alignment was still in spec (except for camber of course).



Test and tune is this Saturday!

So last night we had a small amount of rain. Got to the track at about 8am and the test and tune was suppose to start at 9am. Waited and waited for them to get the track dried. Finally around 12 - 1ish they finally start running cars.

First run I finally snapped an axle



Snapped it right on the end where the axle nut goes. I think the traction bar and the increase in RPMs for launch control was finally the breaking point for the axle. I also noticed in the video I went pretty aggressive at launch and once the car started hopping I should have let off but didnt. Oh well Ive been planning on axles to snap since before I started taking it to the track. I of course carry spare axles (Duralast lifetime warranty FTW!) so I swapped it out and was good to go. Gotta give a thanks to Al ( @Built_not_bought ) for helping me push the teg back to the pits and swap out the axle so I can get back to racing!

Got back in line and was only able to only get a 2nd pass before heading out. My 2nd pass was a 12.46 at 123.97mph (so close to 124!)

Im working on getting the videos together but should be up shortly. I mounted the GoPro inside the car this time which I think works pretty well since you can see me shifting and what not. Just need to figure out how to eliminate some of the rattle.

Overall it was a pretty good day. I didnt put down a new personal best but talked with some cool people and got compliments on my build.

Any time!


Like one of the old guys said watching me putting back my street tires: "Its always nice to be able to drive it home".


Often times this important "achievement" goes unnoticed when goal isn't met. We both drove our tegs home after running 120mph+ 1/4miles.

Found an awesome deal on a set of brand new slicks! One thing crossed off my winter to-do list.

The last test and tune session is tomorrow but the weather isnt looking too good so im not sure if it will happen yet or not.
