Ahh, I am about an hour North of Vero. You should come meet us out at Orlando Speedworld one Funday Sunday. I-95 north to 520, 520 to 50 and you cannot miss the track lol.

I will keep my eyes out. I have a 4L60 (non electronic controlled), basically a 30 spline 700r4, but I am unsure of what I am doing for my turbo LS camaro transmission yet, so I may hang on to it. I will let ya know if I decide to sell it or if I find something different.

Th400 against that LQ9? The 1999-2001 LQ4/LQ9 have a longer crank, remember that.

should this hook hard on the street?


My track day set-up, 28x12.50 ET Streets, 5.25 bs welds with a 3/16 spacer, narrowed 8 3/4 Mopar rear. Clears everwhere, just barely. Going to switch to 295/55/15 M/T dr's this spring so I can leave 'em on, these come off if the humidity goes up... :lol:

Mine sits pretty high, screw fashion, if the truck hooks and the tires don't rub with a load of lumber in the back, the ride height is perfect...
