No Nitro for me... too much to change and I can't drive that on the street... If the turbo's alone wont do it, I'll crank in more nitrous... when we turn them on we are only sprying a 150 shot right no, and we can certainly dial that up....

the quarter mile is fun, but for me it's stand on it and go like hell till there aint no mo go to give... I'm hoping at this run of the Texas Mile to peg the rpm's at 7000 in 5th gear... I asked my builder what to do if I reach that and still have track to go... he said to stay in it... it'll hang... 7000 rpm in 5th gear is 230ish... 231... Thats the goal...I can't shift into 6th or I'll be buying a new transmission again.... 1st through 5th are billet gears... 6th is stock for now...

Not if I wish for my weekend to continue... shifting into sixth a and trying to maintain or increase speed will guaranteed destroy the transmission... Think of the dynamic forces acting on the car, rolling and wind resistance, which increase exponentially with speed, and then dump the power into a stock cast or weak forged gear set... Done. finito, no mas... daddadadathas all folks...

If I'm at 230 and still have track left, I'll keep my right foot firmly on the loud pedal... and be creeping my right hand to the chute release...cause that shutdown area at 1/2 mile is gonna go by in a hella hurry... At 230 + mph, you cover a half mile in 7-8 seconds... I wonder how long it takes to stop a 5th gen on the road from 70 mph... 5, 6, 7 seconds... and what distance... At my first running of the mile, stopping twice from right at 200 mph, my front rotors were BLUE... heated and cooked blue... tempered blue... it was pretty impressive... if I may say so... I'm betting by the time I turned off the track thay wer a pretty shade of yellow... and cooled to blue...I need to figure out I can get a go pro looking at the front rotors, but more to my desire, looking at the exhaust manifolds during the mile pull....

I was of course kidding about the Nitro. I'm aware that most of my posts make me sound like my IQ is about 54, but I do know Nitro won't ever work on a street car.

230 mph. Damn, that's insane! Well done. Very well done.

I knew the comment about Nitro wasn't serious... And thanks... 230 is a goal, but it won't be easy...

Corey has decided in addition to it being time for a Speed density tune, that it's time to take advantage of all the available power Brandi has in addition to protecting as much as possible the motor.

Thats awesome!

It is indeed a small world. I may know him. I was assigned to three different rigs working in Brazil and know lots of guys from other rigs. The oilfield is quite small in the grand scheme of things...

So, I was talking to the mechanic that works on my car the other day, and he said he had spoken with Chris at Pro EFI... and they were still waiting on the color display CAN...

So, he told them to ship what they had.... Waiting to hear that it's there...

I'm just over two weeks left here offshore... Africa...

Can't wait to get on the freedom bird home and if the car is running, get some seat time on the road prior to the mile...
