F1-R max hp 1300hp at max boost of 38psi. If you have the motor for it why not get the most out of your blower?

Why not just go with the F4?

I am thinking that will be the way to go... you can still use a serptine belt on an F1-R right.... doesnt have to be cog does it?

Yes you run regular belt without going COG. Only advantage to the F1-R is you are capable of cranking it up down the road, which I am guessing you will be wanting to do down the road. I absolutley love my F1-R and it sounds incredible.

I know there was a post in the FI marketplace about about someone selling both a 3.6KB and a F1 kit.... Think it was a shop car or something...

Nice runs Kyle,

I like how you started babying it off the line and just let them ponies eat at the top end...

Glad to see you making some passes with a healthy car as well....

This was a charity event that the Local Police put on at an Airstrip for some 1/8 mile drag racing. It was pretty fun, considering it was clean concrete and I was on street tires.

I was still smoking my tires at 400ft... with or without Traction Control,
I tried leaving in 2nd gear.. and that just lit them up more (race against corvette),
my last runs were a little better once i realized I could only use 30% throttle to get through first gear and part of 2nd. hahaha

my best time was 8.3 @ 96mph... I am excited to see what that will translate to with Slicks and a prepped track!
Looks like me on the street with my donks.
