Default Winter Upgrades/Mods

Who's doing what to their cars in the off season? I'm pretty happy with my car so the only thing planned for this winter is new Hoosier drag radials. I squeezed out five years on the old Mickey Thompson DR's. I need to be consistant for bracket racing so I need new tires plus the Hoosiers are like 8 or 9 pounds lighter each. So I decided to try them this time. Found a smoking Cyber Monday deal at McCormick Racing, two 275/50/15 DR's for $378 shipped.

I'm hoping to do a 9" rear end if the stars align properly.

Hoping to do a ported fast102, race brakes in the front, possibly a meziere ewp. Definitely doing a faceplated T56 and some other little tricks to the driveline. Goal is 11.0 next year.

Mine just got parked in the garage. Next spring it will get head lights, front rims/tires more for the street. I plan on street driving it more next year.

Unless someone buy's it. LOL
