    Not sure if you ever got the full potential out of the last setup before the axle broke. Can't really say, but I am cheering for you to hit 11's! I just swapped to 4.10's from 3.73's as well, hopefully it will help out my 60'. Also just got a set of adjustable uppers and will be buying a set of 26"X8" slicks.

    nah never got a good pass with timing thrown at it. that 12.4 pass was with the intake blowing oil out of the valley seals and 10* of timing on it.

    im also going to try to rewire my 2step to stay on while i hold the clutch down but still have to hit the button on my shifter to turn it on. but just hit it once and not have to hold that. i really need to get my 60's into the 1.50's and not 1.70's

    I think you'll bust the 11's easy. Good luck

    I just wired my 2 step like this last week. It works pretty good. I used a toggle switch on my radio panel, toggle on, toggle off with the clutch pressed. Clutch released, and 2 step goes away. Also wired my line lock to activate and deactivate with it.

    I think 1.7's are decent for your combo. If I can get 1.7s out of mine I will be happy. 1.5s will definetly be an accomplishment.

    Yeah, its just 1 wire going to it. I just have two 12v sources for it. 1 12v toggle so i can use it alone, and the second 12v toggle activates the linelock and 2 step together.
