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.
