Clutch change/gear swap results

Feb 4, 2014 update on Will's 1994 Ford Thunderbird SC

I did mean to post an update on the last round of changes. I replaced the 3.27 rear gears with 2.73s, replaced the 4” driveshaft with a 3.5” piece, and put in a new Centerforce dual friction clutch (same as the old one, just not broken). My street tire 1/4-mile ET dropped from 13.62 (forget the mph) to 13.21@109.98. Now maybe if I drag race more than once a year, I can get good enough to find a 12.xx@110 on street tires (the car is probably a second or so faster on slicks).
