Crazy fast is good, yes? This car will be more tame than the vid NRE has in the 1st gen Camaro won't it? That thing was just wheel spinning crazy!

Well, we don't have the 'final' rubber on yet, i.e. the M/T 345 DR's.
So... there will be traction issues.

No matter what tires we have, we wouldn't be able to crank it past probably 20 psi since it is not on a prepped track. We figure we can set the boost up to the level it starts spinning at 140 mph (Note: This is NOT being done on open streets !!) That will give us a decent boost map level with some good loading in high gear. I can then use these maps to extrapolate the higher boost level maps when we start track testing. You have to remember we have already done a lot of the mapping using the DTS engine dyno since it has the ability to change load (stuff you really can't do with a chassis dyno).

This effort is to tailor it to the particular characteristics of the torque converter, tranny, differential and gear ratio. I will try to do a little programming lesson video with the AMS-1000 since so many on here have now chosen that for their builds.

I would damn sure like to see that. With us 'Forum Rat Power Level' guys it's more just push the gas and go.

I'll ask this here.

SA2010 rated, from Summit. Anyone have a negative about G-FORCE racing helmets?

When it is SA2010 rated you are good to go. It doesn't matter who manufactured it. It passed Snell testing. Snell is independent so they play no favorites. Your head will be safe as it can be. SA means it is also roll cage impact resistant and fire retardant.

I have that exact same helmet. FYI, Summit will price match if you can find it for less online. They did for me.
