You would have to contact BMR about the cost of the kit. They have a thread in this section about it all.

Who gives a shit who you are or who you think you are. I could care less. If you were as awesome as you think you are you'd have done this already.


The fact you actually care about an Internet list is pathetic. You could go 9.0 with a 376, wouldn't rustle my feather. 1st or 10th, doesn't make any difference.

Add the 580 lbs, check your math, then repost.

Lots of talk, no racing. I guess your Sam the talker. Plenty of cars faster than mine. I'm ok with it. You, on the other hand seem obsessed with me. Kinda creepy.

If you go faster ill be the first to congratulate you, Sam " the talker".

Similar setup as Brain's S-10? What would be the weight difference between them? Cause that S dime is freaking fast!

I'd like to see someone run a 9.60 in these cars sub 700 wheel, it'd give me hope!

Wow is it that hard to believe? Didn't Rhino79 run a 10.87 with 475rwhp? And is shooting for a 9.90 or better with a 150shot? It is VERY possible high 500s or low 600s.

Getting struck by lighting is also possible, but the probability is very slim.

I believe Rhinos car was over 500. But that time is still crazy fast for such a low rwhp, fat car.

I'm pretty sure it was around 470 480ish because just a month ago he barely put down 506rwhp or so and has not hit the track yet.

Yup... it was with his MAST cam and no head work. It was a 470-480rwhp number.

My car will go 135+ at 3650 raceweight and it only dynos 560ish unlocked. It's really not that farfetched.

It's funny how people like to bench race peak dyno numbers which should only be used for tuning as they can be skewed in so many ways especially with an auto ie converter locked/unlocked, gear selection the A6 isn't 1:1 in 4th, weight of wheels/tires and rearends eat up different amounts of power, besides the fact the track is uncorrected hp output and the dyno doesn't take into account any ram air effects at speed. Good luck Sam, I remember seeing the car run at Crandall!

steve , ive said that before and ppl act as im dumb. thats why ppl are liking the vvt stuff. the mid range power is great from what ive seen of it. but a car that making a good power curve vs a peak hp car the power curve is gonna take it. peak is usally only seen for a split second. midrange to hi mid is the meat on the bone.

Exactly, average power is what wins races!

Bolted it straight on the car without any issue. It was 23.75 lbs for the fiberglass version. Just an FYI.

It's had the th400 in it for the past three years. Got fed up with clutch problems.

Yeah I knew that, just wasn't sure if you were sticking with it now.

Understandable, but ya never tried a Monster in it just saying...I'm sure you're aware of the Cartek H/C Gen 5 that went 10.8 with one

Looking forward to you setting some records this time around!

I've never driven a Monster that I liked.
It had a RPS BC2 in it last. It ran its fastest passes (10.2's) with the stock clutch. I shouldn't have taken it out.

I can't believe no one had been faster than me NA. I haven't raced it in 17 months.

Hmmm, thought you tuned Toque's vette? Well the Monster in the 500rwhp NA camaro cut a 1.54, interesting the RPS/HE clutch didn't net a faster time for you. Jam3 cut a 1.48 with a Monster in his Gen 5 with 700rwhp fwiw, of course I know you went faster when you put the auto in with the built motor. I remember seeing it once at the track when GSS was around, it went 10.5 NA right?

sam , care to pm me about some weight saving. im about to start a bit of a build for my car. would like to know all i can before i start tearing it down this winter.
Ppl dis the factory clutch in these cars but im gonna tell u. ive dogged mine hard on a shot at the track and it has stuck to the floor a few times but other then that its held pretty good. (flushed out the old fluid and it was good) i should be right around 625-650rwhp and 675 tq on a 150 shot. its taking it like a champ so far. Im know i need to upgrade but im kinda afraid to . U hear so many ppl hating on clutchs that they spent a good chuck on. the street slayer and rxt are about the only ones i know of that ppl dont hate on.

It will be after the first of the year. I have a full plate at the shop.
The good news is its finished being painted and looks unreal for the factory color. Ill post pictures when I start putting it back together in December.
