Yeah, me too and I'm not really a NASCAR fan. There is a guy that has 2 in Isle of Palms near Charleston, very jealous.

They should have wrapped the chrome on the spoilers in CF, that would have looked much better...

After looking at this car for an hour now, I am in love! Only thing I would change is the spoiler and front splitter, but I can understand why they're on there. Just awesome.

see now i am confused. i have heard with the vortec supercharger you get 600 to the crank, and to the wheels you should be putting down around 530-540. guess different dynos different numbers. and i do not know what dyno those results for vortech came off of.

Yep,different dyno's will give different results,these cars were run on a Mustang load-bearing dyno,and produced between 530-540 rear-wheel horsepower,on a "non" load-bearing dyno (such as a lot of Dynojet's) they would probably show a 15-18% increase which would be around 630.
They factored everything in at the flywheel/crank to be around 704 hp. But like I said,"true" rear-wheel hp is between 530-540.

Other than the front splitter i think it looks ok. That front splitter with those braces would have to come off right away. Dont think it looks good. They finally took them off the NASCAR COT race cars as well.

Funny you mention that,I mentioned that as well to my buddy (who was one of the lucky techs who got to build the cars!) and he said maybe they would do something different for the 2012's if they continue to build them.

I understand the theme with the spoiler and splitter. Are there other options for the spoiler and splitter?
You could have them special build you one the way you want and leave them off,maybe go with a different front splitter,and an SLP rear spoiler instead.
What they actually do for the rear is buy new decklids from GM without the spoiler holes,It was cheaper,easier,and better for them to do that instead of trying to fill the factory ones in the original lids.

The guy is dead. I could understand finishing the build on the first one, but whoever came up with this is just cashing in on his name. Personally, this shows no class.

I don't care how much of a "tribute" it is to him. I used to be an Earnhardt fan and respected him and his business, but when he died so did his character and integrity. Who ever is running that thing, I think its the wife, is a bit of a gold digger IMO.

I'm confused; 704 FWHP - 15% drivetrain loss = ~598RWHP
530RWHP woul be ~25% drivetrain loss????
Why isn't there ONE way (ONE STANDARD) to arrive at an accurate RWHP #???
How the heck do you know who is BS-ing??????

you may be correct in your feelings here,but i for one feel like it was done on the basis of other people going to his wife and suggesting there may be some people out there that would like to own something like this,

car looks hot! I love the hood. Is that hood available? I want it, NOW. The guages look different than my 10 camaro ss? Like the front spoiler,but the rear spoiler, I'm not crazy about all the chrome pieces. A little much for me.

I was about to rant about the design but after looking at it a couple of times, it grew on me. I just like the fact that they are honoring Dale Earnhardt Sr. That is one beast of a motor! 704 HP? Minor changes to the interior look very nice. It's a good design, however I just have one suggestion:

fill in the that mailslot please.

Not my cup of tea. The spoilers grab all the attention and the mail slot should be deleted. Maybe a matte black paint would have been better.
