With 552 cubic inches and a 3.91 gear I wouldn't worry too much about tire pressure. Your going to be steering with the gas pedal. Full tank of gas is good advice. Not because of uncovering the pick up but so you don't run out before the finish line!
Get some video and post it if you can.
Will try to get the video posted for sure, and you're 100% correct about the fuel mileage. I get 9 mpg driving nicely down the highway at 65 mph, 6 in town. We tried the slip sliding the rear with my buddies Camaro, then went smooth like turbo2256b suggested, as a guy at that event told us to do the same, and smooth was quite a bit faster, even though it felt slower. Turning and burning was way more fun though....
Lol that sounds like so much fun. You will have to give us some action pics or videos. I would love to do something like that in my wagon. I stiffened up the front real good now I have to get some good shocks and maybe a sway bar for the back. Good luck with it and let us know how it goes.
P.s. I doubt you will get any traction with that beast lol
By the way love the title

Thanks. This thing is more than a handful on the street
. It will do rolling burnouts at 35-45 mph in 1st gear, and will just light them off clear into 3rd and keep burning till you let off. I figured the title would get more views and replies, and seems to have worked haha.....
I have run autocross events SCCA sponsered. The real idea is to run the course as smoothly as possible. My current car is realy set up more for open track days. Nearest open tracks are about 100 mi away so havent done that yet. Autocross reviled a few tweeks needed though and was fun. At least untill a tech guy tore my 450 dollar helmet appart. Also blew my rear and gearing is not correct for the time being. Too many other projects.
Car did out run some M3s, 370Zs, boxter porshe by 4 to 4.5 seconds. LOL then got toasted by a old Volvo waggon.
my track car
That car looks sweet, definitely different from the norm....We've got a lot of hi-end cars that run here, but the fastest is a stone stock Scooby-Doo (Subaru) WRX....other than the race prepped 5.0s, that is.
I've got more pics and info on the car in the build thread section, too, if anyone's interested to see the engine and such.....
