New Weld RTS drag pack on the Z.



I only have this one cell phone picture because it rained pretty much all weekend. I'm hoping to get some better shots this weekend. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The car works great on the street which was the end goal. I think it may be a little to much tire for the track until I do a clutch, but I can live with that since I really don't race much on the track.

Also if anyone knows how to make pictures larger on photobucket please let me know. Thanks!

I clicked expecting a 370Z. Not used to a Z06 being referred to as such.

Was this car at Providence a couple weeks ago parked near a blue VR-4?

Very sweet.

I was trying to remember what the red car looked like, so here's a side-by-side:

Yeah, I was about to say your 08 looks lower than the 06, but I guess it's the tire height that did it.

The logic behind it is more sidewall for less "shock" to the axles and rear end.

I was thinking it was a smaller wheel too that made it look that way.

that's another reason i'm going to go with a bias ply MT ET Street once my ET Street Radials are worn out. the soft sidewall is easier on IRS parts.

ever since i saw the video of the ZR1 pulling the front wheels (stock ZR1 with drag radials only!), i have wondered how they kept the rear alive. need to look into what axles/stubs they are running.

The nice thing is you have the option to be able to run a 16. I'd have to do a lot of stuff to run smaller then a 17 and to be honest drag racing isn't all i plan to do with the car so it's pointless to go that route.

I've started doing a little research on axles and clutch set ups but haven't really made up my mind as to what i want to do, however hopefully it'll be a while before i have to do that.

i can run 16"s for now. i'm planning on upgrading to C6Z stuff and 18" wheels for all four corners next year. i went to the track once last year, not getting much use out of a drag pack that way lol.

I agree that bias ply tire is the way to go. I felt like it kept me from breaking lots of stuff on my stang.
