Great build, nice meeting you at the track day. Did they figure out what was causing the issue you noticed on the track?

Death By Racecar

Its Done!!! picked up the car yesterday from 510 in houston!! Made great numbers on the dyne, but more importantly makes great drivable power on the street.. I cannot thank Matt and JR enough for the dedication, time, work, and effort on this build.. the new shop looks great and this shop is going places..

All three dynos were in over 100 degree heat.. last one was the ice pull and made excellent power. IATs were around 150 degrees and the car still pulled hard.

I highly recommend any work to go straight to them no question about it.

Enjoy the pictures and videos below and more to come!

even with "the same mods" their cars seem to make a tad more power than other builds.

A lot of us run the Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I really like them, but they're kinda expensive.

Yea thats whats on the other cars.. but 315s are pretty expensive may just have to run DR.. but don't like the fact they are not rated well for high speed

If you want to continue to run on the road course do not use drag radials. One of our members is over 800 rwhp and he tried once and said he was all over the place. Had to run back to his shop and swap out tires /wheels.
