what kind of setup do you have? to be able to run low 6's on 10 psi is impressive. are you spraying it?
i know nelson racing engines has a twin turbo 522ci in a 63 le mans that runs 5.3's on 10psi. i think it was in chevy performance a few monthes ago. they have some seriously bad ass shit.

He does have a chute on it. He competes in a 1/4 mile class. It doesn't run fast enough to need it (146) but is there just in case. Still using the stock block with a 70mm.
85 Burick Bro-ham. Just your average car with tag and insurance.

Ok, we saw that car make a pass. It is badass for sure. They werent showing times though. It didnt LOOK 6.0 fast but, turbo cars are hard to judge by watching them.

They definitely don't sound like they're going that fast, until you get down deep in the 4's.

Kyle's car has 13" discs all around, not 9" discs in front and drums in the back like the average bracket car. I think he'll do just fine slowing down from 115 with no chute.

Don't matter much to me... You're either in my league or out of it.

No skin off my nuts either way. I'm still down for a run.

I want one for the "rice" fact, it would be sweet driving to work daily with a chute on the back....but then i'd need a cage to mount it to and well...now we just are being silly

and Dusty, ya we seen the car. I had just got back in town from Steele but didn't race at HSV. The GN was sick to say the least. But its no fun racing folks that ARE fast. Its only fun racing folks that THINK they are fast :p

I guess because we don't have a Supra is the reason we don't run 6.1's .

Nobody but me and the tuner know's what my car dyno. It wasn't a huge number probably less than yours. It didn't make anywhere near what I thought it would make 100's less.
Nobody said you didn't have a car, just figured we would see it or hear about it by now should you have it in your possession.

Put an X on it and come out friday, everyone else is gonna be doing that. You can show me tail lights then....those are the words you said....
