Started racing the car in spring of 2011, had major clutch pedal issues. Installed a new GM slave which kinda fixed the issue then ended up installing a Mcleod master which helped out a bunch. Clutch still sucked. Also took off the flowmaster in favor of an SLP loudmouh. In July it went 12.93 @ 107.33 on 255/50/16 MT drag radials with basically a lid and catback. It was game over at that point I knew id never sell it and my love for drag racing took over. Car needed a right rear axle and bearing since day 1 and I knew racing it Id blow the 10 bolt apart so since I had a fresh 9" sitting at my shop I installed that at the end of July that year. 4.10 gears, detroit locker, 31 spline axles. That kind of turned into a nightmare, the locker was a circle track locker and was obnoxious to drive on but I sucked it up for a while until I found a practically new truetrac. Car drove really nice after that but gears were noisy as hell. Best ET with the 4.10s/9" was 12.71 @ 107.89. Blew the stock 9" carrier apart and it sat about a month. went with a new strange pro iron case, motive 4.30s, billet strange daytona pinion support and billet aluminum yoke. reused the truetrac. By then it was mid septemer so the air was getting better

After I got it back together with the 4.30s it was alot cooler out, first pass out it went a 12.6x. Ended up running at 12.45 @ 110 the following week, the same night I miss shifted from 2nd into 1st and broke the motor, it had a pretty bad tick to it. Parked it at that point and drove it a few times until I pulled the motor in January. Ended up buying a really nice Ram VDS sintered iron clutch setup and another trans that was built but had a broken input shaft & counter shaft for cheap. Also picked up a set of mint original SLP SS wheels with brand new tires & BMR SFCs for another deal I couldnt pass up. The original plan was to just replace the lifters, camshaft & heads after I found a top end off a low mileage early 2000 LS1. That ended up changing.
