I would change your tranny fluid to get better protection ( if you haven't already ) use Red Line MT90 3QTS. and Light weight shock proof 1QT.

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

If I didn't know any better, I think that the Suby/DSM showdown already happened.

Are you sure that you're not talking about the DSM Shootout? If so, you won't be able to run.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

<------ Click to see what I'm workin' with. ;)

Do a 50/50 coolant water mix, put in heavy oil (15W-50 Mobil 1 is great for racing), and I would put 3 quarts of Light Weight shock proof in your tranny...and don't under inflate your tires it won't help any
