    I'll be running a basic plate system. Was planning on a dry fogger, but with the recent changes to the n/a setup, it will be pushing my stock fuel system too hard. So instead of upgrading the entire fuel system, I'm just going to be running a secondary stand alone fuel system and will be spraying a wet shot w/ Nitrous and Meth, no gasoline. My car is already running on E85, possibly switching over to E98.
    i have seen lean spikes with the stand alone fuel systems. ...Don't think their tuners tuned for the lag in the fuel fighting to get in the cylinders.

    must be a serious motor if you need E98. I know 14 to 1 race cars who run E98

    14:1 as in high compression?

    Mine is 13.8:1...I haven't attained the 14:1 baller status yet.

    correct. I seen quite a few...Hell I know some 8 second cars who don't even run E98. They are still using E85.

    My goal is to just clip off a high 9 sec pass n/a....so if E98 can help me, I will try it. If I can get there with E85 pump gas, I will stick with E85. Having a barrel of E98 in the garage sounds better than chasing down E85 pumps around Houston though...but I am just looking at performance, not convenience. Are there any Baytown track rentals coming up? Be nice to rent the track out and get some good prep with good cars on it w/o all the tech bullshit to deal with since I don't have any legal shit on my car.

    Isn't E85 at many Krogers? I know we have a few spots on the southside who sell E-85 and have been for years. I guess that sounds more appealing to me than having a 55 gallon drum in my garage.

    ouch. Hopefully it didn't tear up anything else. I shattered the output shaft on the TBSS a month or so ago and it is still down Sad

    There is one station in Pearland off of 518 and Cullen. Then the next closest station that I know of to the South side is down off of Nasa Rd. 1. For me on the West side, I got to go fill up off of Fry and I10, which sucks having to go there before I can head out to play. That is where the convenience of having my own personal gas station at my house would be cool....but if that shit stunk up my entire garage/house? Then no, fuck all that.

    Theres one in a few areas. The one in Pearland the one of nasa and one off hwy 96 going towards 146. Thats 3 good locations.

    Keep that drum SEALED tightly. If you do laundry in your garage it could stink up the clothes. I am glad my laundry room is upstairs in our house. We also have a 4 bay garage though so it helps.

    My transmission won't be pulled until I get ready to do the clutch over at Josh's. I'm not dropping that thing with the car on jack stands. I'll take a look at it over there.

    Chris is running an ACT Twin disc in his Z06.

    My car had been on the stock clutch but she was getting weak...losing mph every time I went to the strip. I'm swapping in a McLeod RXT Twin disc in mine.

    The LS7 won't hold 700whp imo. That is almost the breaking point for the LS9. If you want an LS7 clutch though, I'll sell you mine for cheap. You could inspect it, may need a new disc, may not...I was still running mid 10's with it, but I noticed that I was losing mph and I am blaming the clutch....but it may be fine. It was still cutting 1.6 60's.

    yeah we rolled down to the "dig" spot and had some fun. The procharged camaro ran a buddies turbo diesel. It was a good race and some fun. We need more fresh meat to come out.

    yeah set up races than go get it done. Its not a bad spot. I think if we keep going there there is going to be a good bit of rubber laid down.
