Nice work. You can probably knock off a tenth or two with skinnies.

You can probably knock at least half a tenth going with a wheel that's NOT the Caprice wheel. Those things are heavy, and going with even a different steel wheel will cut some rotating mass. Aluminum would be even better.

Great times Nate. How does all that grunt translate in terms of drivability? Does it feel good stoplight to stoplight?

It's pretty good stoplight to stoplight. I need to have my tuner adjust some stuff around 45-50 mph but other than that it's pretty normal just bucks a little bit at that one speed range.
