I wasnt allowed to drive as you have to be 17 but dad drove. We only got two passes out of her before it blew a belt and the crank pulley slid forward.

depends what the future mods are but 4.11 diff gears would really get it moving, when i was researching i read somewhere that decent diff gears should knock about half a second off your times

I'd say 4:11's aswel. But that depends on future mods. You would want to car crossing the line in top gear

4.11 25inch tyres 104mph@5750rpm.
26inch tyre 108mph@5750rpm.

You can run into the 12's with that mph but if you want to go faster 3.89 might be better.
