    Just joined here, thought I'd add my weekend car to the mix. It's got a few things done to it, best track time so far of 6.97 @ 103mph on it's maiden pass, then got kicked out for no cage. Cage is in now :)

    Yeah, mph would need to be double that to go 6.97 in the 1/4 :o Going for 6.50's all boost, no spray.

    Good looking FWD Assasin, any mods?

    It's a drag car, auto's are faster.

    Did you notice the paddle shifters on the steering wheel?

    This is the prototype, I'm the first one getting one :)

    Turns out the reason the car's had a misfire all season and run like shit is a blown HG, probably from the 45psi boost spike I had in June (vacuum line blew off). It's a T-67 P trim wheel. The dyno looks like that because it's a high stalling auto. I don't want to post the in-car video link here for fear of eating all my bandwidth up, but it never falls out of power, pulls the same all the way down the track.

    Why not do 1/4 mile? That is a better test of a car's time on the track..

    AWD, the 1/8 mile times are more impressive , comparatively
