    If it's not one thing, it's twelve others. . . . .

    So reading through the local track rules,
    looks like the only thing needed down to 11.5 sec is the Driveline SAFETY Loop.

    Other than easy of installation, what make this one worth $100 more?

    I have always used the universal (cheaper) ones. I know you need to secure it to the floor, with a plate on the otherside to sandwich the floorpan to keep the bolts tear out incase of u-joint failure, but seriously, an extra $100 because it bolts specifically to MOPAR trans.

    Anyone know if our STOCK Belhousing Clutch & Flywheels pass SFI Spec?
    (for 11.49-10.99 class not that I need to worry about that, yet :) )

    Look what just came in today.

    Yep, one more thing I get to Custom Install :)
    Did another TEST pass on our backroad strip before I put on the Nitto NT555R Extreme Drag Street Slicks
    14.6 something at 103, spinning like crazy in 1st & 2nd, even feathering the clutch a bit.
    Did bump the Rev Limiter back up to 6.5k
    This could be FUN if I ever get traction.

    14.79, my bad, but still 103-MPH
    still within the top 88 of the 1320 club on bad tires.
    And still getting 26MPG on the highway :)
    Can't wait to get it on the track with lights in the next few weeks.

    FYI,
    Yes, for our car's you do need to get the one designed for them, or really do more modifications than reasonable.

    Also, our Stick Cars have a different one from Autos.

    With the way the stock exhaust it, I don't see much of a need for the loop just to run stock at the track,
    but rules are there for a reason. . . . .

    So, new loop ordered,
    and will save this one for the '69 Cuda Project.

    Would have been much easier to install if I had dropped the exhaust :)
