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.

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.
