the suspension is lowered its really not the "ideal" setup for drag racing. kyb shocks up front with lovells superlows, and kings lows with a coil lopped of the top. theres not water in oil cause its not white i dont have any water leaks although i do have an annoying powersteering leak that i cant seem to find no matter how manny cans of degreaser i use, so the head gasket it is good. compression? probably no really should be checked. fuel filter is maybe 10,000k old the the previous one did about 20,000 and the one before that looked like the original. its got bout 6 month old leads plugs, regulary cleaned k&n filter is thinkin of going to the 24pound au v8 injectors use 6 have 2 spares? i generally launch around 3-4 thousand rpm. the 16.3 run i wasnt actually to sure how the clutch would handle it being the first time i had run it so i was a little easy on the loud pedal launched maybe 2300 but it dont wheel spin on the vht. clutch slips a bit on launch but its sort of a good slip sounds dumb i know but i rev it dump clutch takes off whiles revs come down and the speed cathes up the clutch fully engages around 2500 rpm give or take a little if i change to quick the clutch will slip in third. i can watch the speedo over the line and i know roughly how quick i went cause if i go through the traps at 135 i know that it will have done around an 16.7 but
if i go through traps at 139-140 its gunna pull a 16.3-16.4.
i hope that answers everyones questions
