I still wish you would have stuck with the turbos and maybe sprayed a touch outa the hole to get you the 60' that you needed. I was actually down in texarkana the day that you were installing the turbos on the guys car that bought them from you. I was swapping exhaust systems with Aaron (I think that was his name). He said he knew you and I thought about stopping by for a meet and greet but by the time we got the exhaust stuff done I was behind schedule and had to get back to little rock.

If you do win it will be pretty crazy that the fastest G8 is on the stock long block. That aspect of your setup is pretty amazing.

Hmm,D you are starting to sound like them part time guys from the other side lol...While you can take a guess how much more power will knock off your ET unless you can get it to the ground you will not get the ET,mid 9s are easy with the power if you know what to do,if you dont its real tuff...I wish both guys lots of luck and look foward to future sales lol...FYI i just had a customer go a low 10 at 4400lbs,if he wants me to help him both you guys are in troubel LOL...GOOD LUCK

Mostly due to your hurt engine... TVS2300 @ 15PSI should be easy 10.2's on a stock motor. My TVS1900 @ 12lbs went 10.4 on a stock engine not even trying. I never saw IAT's over 110 at the track, heatsoak wasnt too bad.

Hit me up next time you are the area.


Oh and Thomas. I cut a 1.47 60' on the Maggie setup and will easily be able to do the same on nitrous. The full hit will be in just outside the 60'. Like I told you on the phone dont ever compare me to Chris LMAO

No doubt you had a 9 going on that run. Track was hooking real well that day, far better than anything my car has seen. You should look and listen to the video of my 9 second run. That was far from a dead hook.

Is this the most recent youtube of the flight cockpit, Tom? Got a link?

And we should make a requirement that each driver has helmet gopros so we can side by side (or sequentially) arrange the videos for youtube from the driver's perspective in each grocery getter.

lol

This will be a fun event to attend for sure.

Nice.

So maybe Tom has some secrets up his sleeve that only HE sees now in his cockpit!

This is getting interesting even more now...
