The car went good. We did some shake downs and no issue's at all!

Car went 9.9 at 139mph but showed the converter just isn't right. Pulled a few 1.38 60's no problem off the foot brake.

We are working on getting the right converter in the car. When we sort that out the car should pick up the top end nicely. It was used with the tranny so we gave it a try.

One thing i have learned the last 2 weeks. Any more than 10psi or about 900whp is completely useless and dangerous on a road course wheel/tire setup. I finally was able to register 15psi albeit for only a split second before the car was really loose.

Lots of fun but i have to learn all over again how to control this thing. I have never been more concerned while driving my car. Need to back off the ramp rate from 20 to about 5 on the boost leash to allow much more refined boost onset.

Twins are the best thing i could have even done! But im glad i have experienced both routes in the process.

Well that's great but please keep your experiences with your car in your thread. No one here gives a shit about road racing. Lol

Screw you all!! no problems with the car. Problems with the owner trying to drive. All I wanted was to not be afraid of it. Mission accomplished. Don spent the entire day with us. Checked over both cars. Best day is years. I'm so looking forward to the next time out.

C7 went 10.5 at 130 mph on 8 psi and 18" drag radials.

Problem with the owner is that he can't drive worth shit, and he's still back where he left off. That thing is just going to take off into orbit at a vertical standstill. lol

Of Course, I'm still waiting for my car. and waiting, and waiting.
