Does this dyno reading just make it seem that way, or is that how your car is set up? I'm guessing due to the tuning, and the nature of the turbos that instead of making peak TQ at low RPMs...like an EcoBoost engine...yours instead tops out at higher rpms?

Don't take this the wrong way..I'm not taking anything away from your success...it is incredible. I'm just curious is all!
Just trying to protect the TC and transmission. He's bring it up to about 4300-4500 RPMs at part throttle, starting the run, then hitting it. So, it makes more power down low than what you are seeing. In fact, until we can get a multi-disk TC and can lock it, we will probably never know how much torque we are making because it probably peaks below 4000 RPMs.

Also a video of last years.

Man, I just don't have what it takes for that anymore. My sphencter leaves impressions in the seat above 140 MPH. Don't think I can do 165+ unless my life depended on it.

I hear you man, I have yet been able to get over 137mph without letting off. I have a military injury where extreme pressure messes with my spinal nerves at higher speeds than that. I will try and go as fast as I can but if I can't max out by the finish line. I plan on letting someone from my club try it to see what the car can do. I don't expect to win anything just running for fun. Also if I get the car where I want it.

Okay, converter is in and they will try to do some street testing now that the roads are drying up.

Was planning to go to Memphis Friday because with TnT tomorrow and a club match Fri. morning the track should be in good shape. However, looks like rain is rolling in again. We are going to shoot for TnT tomorrow night. This will be Rhino's first run on nitrous, so wish him luck, too. 10s for me and 9s for him???
