congrats!
you can start tightening extension on the rear too. Might drop 60' as well.
Thanks john, That's what I did actually, those changes were all in the back, I still have my calvert 90/10 up front. This was with my phoenix slicks too not the drag radials from that video i posted last week.

Good deal. Those Phoenix slicks work pretty good.
When you want to go double adjustable up front PM me. I am a Viking dealer :cool:

I like to update this thread with my current setup, switching to a bigger motor with 100 more hp etc has been a little bit of a challenge, had to switch from my 4.10's to the 3.73 gears
i had in the car, and its been a learning curve again to get it to hook etc, but i think i got it figured out, after being at the track 2 weeks ago and not hooking i went back sat to the same track and it was 45
degrees and this time i put the gopro back under the car after the changes i made, first pass it spun, watched the video and seen it was hitting the tire too hard yet even after tightening the rears up to 14 off full tight
went to 10 and it hooked. I think i ended up at 7-8 off full tight, and i'm sure there was more left in it, but with cold temps and it spun 4-11 passes i called it a day! New personal best too 9.61!

Update , been working on getting new power to hook consistently, had the rear Afco’s revalved and picked up a set up Menscer’s for the front that were off a 2200 hp car, price was right! So with the backs right now their almost full loose on rebound but that’s 2 clicks then full tight on the stock Afcos’s, and like 7 off full tight on Comp n the fronts are 15 off full tight on rebound n 6 on Comp , hooked 9-10 times yesterday, all 60’s 1.36-1.37
