Its like Honey Boo Boo with cars, totally idiotic and gives real drag racers a very bad name.
I also think you and I are talking two different things. Your 4th gen bird, like mine are not race cars, they are street cars. There is a difference.
My bird being a hard top is actually quite stiff for a unibody car, but with all the factory suspension short of some BMR parts comes out pretty level with the OG LT1. Now with the motor from my old MC I suspect things will be different.
I plan on a full K member, 32" laddar bars, narrowed 9", 4.86 gears, th400 or T56. I have also taken about 150 lbs off the front of the car with full removal of the A/C system.
