 :D  I like 'em.  They look like low profile?  Aren't they 30" tall? 

Can't see the width in the pics.   1 pieces wheels?

If have a set of 30 inch LSR Dunlops  but have gone to the lower M / T Bonneville tires and changed the differential gear ratio in order to get the car closer to the ground and reduce under car air , the rear diffusers are built but are off in the pics . I will build the front air dam this weekend and am reducing the rear tail height by 5 inches , I also found a big issue with the front brake master cylinder and corrected that last weekend , Tcat remember how hard the car was to push at Race the Base , it turns out the front master cylinder was not returning far enough to allow the brake pressure to relieve , this has held the front brakes on for approx. 5 minutes after last depressing the brake pedal before the pressure would relieve and may explain the spin of the car near 100 mph at race the base too. The car now rolls very easy and I have to block the wheel when its sitting in the garage or it will roll back , I never realized the floor had a slope to it can be more than 1/8 inch over a 15 foot length .

I want to see the car motorvate next weekend.  Wishing you the best luck possible and I'll be there to see if I can help at all.  Sean Roe is gonna be there ...  Should have asked him to bring a SCT tuner along on his holidays so he could adjust your tune if needed ...

El Mirage , 3 events there yet this year !
 My car ran there once before I got it when Evans was done tuning it at Shelby's place  , Evans and Shelby (RIP) went out with the previous owner and made a couple passes with it ( The only use it saw ), still some dust in it I found last week when pulling the roof off  . I have buddy's that have ran at El Mirage that say its worse than the salt gets into every thing its such  fine silt.
 Mojave Mile may be a plan yet this year , that is a great event !

LOL, I read that ElMirage is way easier to clean that the salt.

I still don't know why you don't do the SSCC.  It has most everything and your car looks great with the aero stuff.  There are getting to be more custom built open road race cars for the Unlimited class there.  That's where our cars should shine.  I find it amazing that it's been NASCARS last few (over 200mph) world speed records.  Can't believe it's not a vette or Viper ...  I'm studying.  Only places that run extreme speed is SSCC, Mile and 1.5 mile events plus the lake beds.  The longest and most exciting is the Open Road.  The mile runs are really pretty snoozzy at the start.  They are so high geared that they roll/idle off the start and then rev to snot going through the mile.  It'll be interesting to see what I do in the mile this time.
