I agree about the wife - I only wish I had 1 as cool as his. She never blinked an eye - 101% supportive of Robert and Brandi

Well if for some reason they can't get your tranny built you can always get a RSG Tranzilla. Good for 1200 hp. We know the way you play...

EASILY the most I've ever excelerated in my life other than maybe a rocket ride at Disney or something.

Robert, thank you for the ride. I was absolutely floored. SCARY stuff.

This car is just flat out sick, sick, sick. I can't believe suck power exists underneath a hood. Amazing dude.

Great to meet you and hope to see you run that thing on the strip with no problems for a long time to come.

Most impressed I am. Could be the most memorable mometn at the fest for me.

Next time I won't underestimate the distance. I had to drive all the way home from El Paso non-stop to make it to the office today. Chris made it home safely as well so it's all good. Thanks for the concern. Glad to see you and everyone so far made it back good. Your car is just crazy fast. I'm still amazed.

We should have a grudge race thread for anyone to challenge someone else. It's pretty fun.

I'll let you know the outcome after tomorrow, but I think my A/F ratios and timing are off bad, as they probably were when you rode with me... The different turbo's will spool differently so I guess it makes sense...

I had quite a bit of pinging on the way home as she experienced the heat of the day... but I stayed out of it after I started noticing it...
Corey will be able to straighten her out.... Nexts years challenge, I guess I'll have to bring multi sizes of shirts... I hope yours isn't too big... lol, j/k Brother...

I'm glad you enjoyed the ride, I still suffer serious perma-grin every time I look at her, much less drive her...

She should be healthy in the next couple of days... I'm headed out early in the am to Coreys shop, I'm sure at some point we will have to throw her back on the dyno to make sure all is well since we have different spooling turbo's...

Thanks to all you guys for everything... and I'm looking forward to lining up next to you... I got a few things to sort out, mostly the driver mod... but I'll get there...

Well she felt pretty healthy after we put the new turbos on!!! That was my first ride in her and I think PQ has said it best in his above posts. I Did not know what to expect, especially since I helped lol. But....

























Holy bat man!!! This car is a beast... Pulled harder than I imagined. Nothing like fourh gear and feeling the back end going sideways and black mustang disappear. Better than any ride at fiesta Texas

Glad you enjoyed the ride Chris, and thanks so much for working along side me to get her back on the road...

I'll see you Friday night... Corey may be coming out with his Corvette...

Ahhh... You guys are all insane. Definitely part of the Mental Squad.

Mental Squad = when boost(and/or n2o) pressure is greater than or equal to tire pressure...

Have fun on your runs.

...and again Robert, Brandi runs like she has a JATO rocket attached to her tail. Russ - we know your car flies - you have the video to prove it.
