This sux,

Kyle moves back to Michigan and the H-town crowd adopts him like Larry the Cable Guy adopted ooobly booobly...

He is still Austonian in my book... with Michigan roots...

oh... you have a supercharger?? what else... everyone in this parking lot has a supercharger
lol

I lost my drivetrain warranty after 2k miles.... 426hp > 700hp > 850hp > and planning for the 4 digets.... WTF are we doing!!!

whatever it is, its awesome.

Over the next year I predict a LOT of drivetrain carnage with the kind of power these cars are capable of. Also I hate to be the bearer of bad news but every one of you is going have to think about the following:

NHRA approved Rollcage
SFI Bellhousing/Blanket
Outside accessible battery cutoff switch
Driveshaft safety loop
Window Net
SFI firesuit
5 Point harnesses
Full contact lug nuts
Brain bucket - Snell SA, but M will be fine for most

Highly recommend fire suppression/extinguisher
Highly recommend Drag Radials
Highly recommend HD drivetrains
Highly recommend cooling upgrades
Highly recommend gauges/data loggers to help make sure you don't toast anything.

There. The safety conscious guy feels better now.

Ya, but I wasn't BSing at the fest when I told you I got NO BUSINESS with that kind of power.

I can afford what I got. Miiiiiiight be able to just swing the big time power, BUT then would't be able to maintain it.

But that was scary power. Maybe with some DRs and some practice, but that was freaky. LOL
