Default Can you guys give me an idea what my goal should be?

This specifically directed at the guys that have experience at Hallett. I know times aren't everything and consistentcy is more important (but I'm already staying within .5 secs a lap when I don't get held up on the backside), but it would nice to get an idea of what I should be trying to reach.

'90, stock drivetrain and open diff
Vmaxx non-adj, FM sways, poly bushes throughout
15x8 205/50 R888...FM alignment with another -.5 camber on each end, but I'll be fixing this before march

Eventually the plan is a VVT Swap and XIDAs, but that's point until I know I'm getting the most out of the car now.

CCW what times can I start thinking I'm getting the most out of the car?

No public humiliation for a thread like this?

Is this place going soft?

Maybe your goal should be something "you" want to achieve, not something the forum tells you.

I'd go with a smaller gas tank and bigger wheels.

Your goal is to be faster than hustler. Failure is not an option and there are no excuses.

0 offsets all the way. Then slam that bitch. I'd go with neon green wheels with neon blue paint and neon pink interior. Being different is more important than being fast.
