Ok, what happened.

Well Friday night was spent pulling front shocks out so I could remove helper springs and get the whole lot lower.
Job was done and I adjusted the R/H side of the car about 3/4 inch higher than left.

Of course I also have a leaking AVO, so who again is the agent I need to send too?

All completed before bed time.

Loaded him onto the trailer to tack racing Saturday arvo.

Then onto the race track,
Well ............................... It was farkin scary.
I did a burn out (probably not a big enough one), the car launched pretty well with not a huge amount of tyre spin, tracked straight, but when I backed out of it to change gear, the car turned right, then into second and accelerated, the car turned left.
I then backed out again only to point right again, pedaled all the rest of 1/8.
Still managed a 8.88 time and only into second gear.

I suspect my failed LSD centre had something to do with this, so will try these tyres again after LS centre is repaired.

Put the 17's back on and ran a pretty consistant 8.009 @ 90mph

Cruising in 5th
