Is the SP/RWD actually a series now?
As in a points championship?

That is the class I ran all last year (3 events), but there were no points - just prizes for individual races. I am planning on doing 3 of their events again this year.

if planning on running in that series you should submit your car to be posted ;)

I will be doing at least 3 events and I will post my car up there as soon as the new vinyl is on there. Things have really changed for me ;)

No secrets at all. I never have secrets ... I am very open about what I do.
I just picked up 3 new sponsors and I need to get their vinyl on the car.

I got a load of parts going into Hyde this winter. The results should be very interesting.

if it were me.... from my mustang knowlegdge, Id leave the beefy rear swaybar to get a bit more equalized traction from both tires

why not just pull the front swaybar completely at drag events?

Hey kbrew, from what I understand both sway bars are significantly stiffer than OEM.
The benefit I am seeing is the TRD is hollow, hence it is lighter. I think the whole set is about 20 lbs lighter.

I have pulled the front sway bar off for one event (along with the front strut bar) and did not see a significant difference. I may be revisiting that expereince this year though. ;)

Thanks for the tips and insight!

thats an impressive list you got there. and now that you'll have you clutch troubles sorted out, we should see some impressive runs, eh?

That's the plan. We'll see. The Nemesis came in yesterday (impressive piece!).
If all goes well we should be looking for about 450 rwhp

... which might just be enough to start sniffing ...

10s.
