Damn, what a great race. In the beginning I thought that the Corvette was just totally dominating but you could see
that you had issues with traction. Those last 2 runs were just . He didn't have any issues with anything did he(in the last 2 runs)?

Yep. no traction kills.... usually i can hop in third with a lil wheel spin, but since I got the updated tune its faster and didn't realize that i'd spin all through third and part of fourth. I currently have 275's. Any of you know with some fender rolling, can i fit 305's?

Major props to the vette!!! One sick car. Here is a private run that took place for $1250 -- STREET VERSION of Pinks

the leadweight nova runs low 10's as is

auto will almost always dominate in drag given its setup well with a stall that compliments the motor package

makes bout 570-600 all motor


numbers dont mean a whole lot, if you were to ask me if i want a 600 WHP all motor m3 or a 600 WHP turbo m3, a all motor m3 making 600 will win, the response time and the way the car revs' drives is totally different, plus less added weight.

I agree with you, numbers don't tell the whole story, but it's definetely good to know in order to compare things...

Would love to have seen a run with him running hte nitrous and seen what it could have done!

The HPF car did very well considering the power, torque and weight of the vette.
