We recorded just about every run on our little camera, so I'll have a disc of pics and vids for you Robert. The bad news is, my wife has plans for me to night so I won't be able to go to the track with it. So it looks like the next Wednesday after you get back we'll take it down the strip and shake it down.

Hmm, well keep the wife happy by all means,

And when you say Wednesday after I get back, are you talking about this next Wednesday... the 6th of April...

You got a spare differential laying around, or at least some gears...

Just in case... lol...

baby got some powah now... We strip them bad boys out and I can't go to the fest I'll seriously cry....

Easy passes, not to worry. I just want to make sure she's stable at 140. ;-)

I think I'm going to stop for now, let Robert get some more miles on the motor, enjoy it a little and then maybe we'll see what she'll do on some MS109 in a couple months. So your just going to have to settle for 793hp and 822tq for not Robert. Sorry! :-) This is with LOTS of fuel and very little timing, so it should be fairly Robert resistant.

Yeh, hitting 140 in the quarter is an easy pass, right...

I just want you to be able to have MANY MANY enjoyable miles on this thing. No doubt it will make more power. It's just a little hard to enjoy if it's broke!

Wow, 800 hp and tq. What a tire roasting monster !!! Probably keeping the A/F in the mid-11 range? Nice job Corey. You sound like the man...

Just one question - are you running 93 octane? Do you guys know if Firebird has 93 or are they like CA with 91?

R- Hope you have a good dentist, 'cause you are gonna have perma-grin. 'til your teeth fall out !!

Bruce, the last I heard it was virtually impossible to find 93 octane west of west texas...

Corey was talking about something to help me out there to make sure we don't run into timing retarding due to the knock sensors...

I'm sure they have race fuel... And I have a pretty good dentist...

140mph in the 1/4 mile at 4000lbs takes 855hp - just an FYI

As an example - my GT-R runs 10.3 at 132 - that is 717hp and on my dyno on race fuel it made 711

My Vette ran 154mph at 3700lbs - on dyno 1087hp

I made a calculated guess at frontal area but I am usually pretty close

1700hp - so figure 20% loss through driveline - so 1360 rwhp - that should push the car 170 ish - I look forward to seeing that

Might replace the GO pedal with a feather, you're gonna need it... another monster is born!

Hey... by the time the smoke clears I'll be a mile up the road and the cop will be reporting a flying saucer after seeing the headlights and tail lights whipping around so fast... It'll look like red and white streaks.... and that deep whirring noise...

and Doug will let me do the donut if he wants to drive it....
