Exactly, I dont get those guys. So first they had a 1000 HP car that ran 11's, now they're gonna have 1200 HP and still run 11's. All hpf offers is bragging rights.

They were working on syncros but gave up because it was expensive I think. I think new synchros could be a good thing to develop because everyone is gonna need them eventually seeing as they always fail.

I've seen stage 1 race gas cars that have super charger like dynos, very linear. That would be fun but like you said, anything else just doesn't make sense because you can't put the power to the ground.

Andy I seen some of those smaller batmobile vans, but nothing ever too crazy.

I never went to any car shows or anything while there though.

I know, and the car was warm

The subs were on, but I had just turned them down, so I really dont think it was the music. This isnt the first time this car has set off alarms.
