2001 Chevy Camaro Z28 Tires & Line Lock - The Hookup -Tech

Three Easy Mods Make Your Street F-Body Quick And Safe

Rick Jensen Aug 1, 2008
1/13

Ever since TTP bolted up the heads/cam/bolt-ons and new Strange S60 rear to 1SC-YA, my stripper LS1 project, I've been chomping at the bit for some quarter-mile hits. The last power mod, FAST's 92mm intake and throttle body, left exactly 411 horses and 382 lb-ft of torque SAE at the wheels. That's nearly a hundred horses more than 1SC-YA's 317hp baseline, and over 40 lb-ft more than the 339 lb-ft first seen.

With all of that extra power, traction has become a concern. And with this street driver, I'll be skipping the hassle of swapping drag rims/slicks every time I want to make a pass. Yep, a sticky drag radial that would bolt to my street rims-yet provide great stick for high-rev launches at the track and on the street-would be the best of both worlds. And Mickey Thompson had me covered with its ET Street Radial.

Ensuring that those Mickeys get nice and sticky is a SJM Manufacturing Line Lock. This is the safest way to do a big, smoky burnout, and it prevents unnecessary wear on the clutch and rear brakes. And the SJM has some really cool features I'll tell you about.

In the very unlikely event that my beefy S60's 1350 U-joints and driveshaft decide to bust loose, BMR's Driveshaft Safety Loop will prevent further carnage, as well as any damage to my person. The track day is nearly here, let's get this stuff bolted up.
