Auto car that comes in smooth. That 9" is bulletproof but is overkill and robs power. The car should be fine with some axles, driveshaft and a built stock rear.

I wanna see the Lethal guys play around with the AGP TT kit. Those guys aren't messing around.

I think you'd be surprised at how little power it does rob. At least from my experience we dyno'd the car for the 900whp pass and it made 750whp on the boost. Got the 9" in and went out for an all day ECS Open House/Cruise. I let the car sit for about 30-40 minutes we threw it on the dyno it made 741whp in about 90 degree heat and even hotter in the dyno room. Maybe I lost 10-15hp but it was worth it for the strength.

But I do agree with you I think he'll be fine with the latter, but buying axels/driveshaft/building the stock diff you might as well have spent the coin on that gforce kit on the forum.

SWEET Camaro, a real Beast !!

Don't forget the 18" C6 rear wheels and M/T Drag radials (or better). You will need the traction to keep from slipping all the way down the track.

I want to keep up with your track times. Good Luck at "No Problem" Raceway, one of my favorite lil tracks in the swamps...............ha ha

Looking forward to seeing what kind of times this car puts down. You got a good dyno # that's for sure! Now its time to see if the track times match the dyno #'s!

Should be a 9sec car easy. But from what I noticed on here none of the guys posting big numbers ever post time slips

See no reason for that kind of hp if you're not going to take it to the track and spank some ass. Not saying the OP is not going to track it. Just going off all the other high hp threads.

We all know making the power is the easy part. Getting it down the track and doing it consistently is the hard part.

This is definately not my first rodeo. This cars first time down the the track it only had 700 miles on the clock. My first time down a track was in 1978 and have been racing since. Track times will come as soon as i get the back end beefed up.

Yea I'm at 600 and can't cut a consistent 60 working on suspension this week. Wheel hop started getting bad.

Dragging your car at 700 vs 850 rwhp is a world of difference. There's a very good reason there are what 50, at least, 700+ rwhp cars, and about 10 are in the single digits. It's not that easy to move 4k lbs down 1320'.

When you get down to 6.0's and under in the 1/8 that's when you better hope your car is built to handle it. The wall hurts.

We will put the drag wheels on it as soon as this summer heat cuts us a break. Karbon will def have this thing making passes at the track.
Looks like i might have to defend my 10.0 camaro pass here at Lethal.

On a side note...Century Transmissions...that the same company that's big into 200 4r's from the turbo buick community? If so...they are awesome! Didn't know he was doing ours. I know where I would go for a tranny if I needed one if that's the case.

Yes, Century Transmission. They were one of the first to start beefing up the 6L90.

Karbon is very experienced in drag racing so no doubt he will get some great passes shortly.
