Just so you guys know. This thread came up at a BBQ out here in Afganastan. William (Yes Dan the one with your old twins) and I were out weighing the pros and cons of each of your cars. Verdict is... We wanna see the race!

personally i am not interested in the race..... but i sure do love the path to the race.... sometimes the climb is much more interesting and entertaining than the destination itself

loving it all!!!! I am sure everyone going will do good and hopefully nothing breaks or puts a damper on the show!!! good luck

But it will be quite the sight to see. We definitely need videos of you guys going head to head when it happens Tom and Dan! Make sure both of you have an in-car cam as well going down the strip!

I actually have no idea what you currently have done. I only know what you've done in the past. What's your current setup?

Nice! I'm amazed at how high my 3200 RPM stall jumps in RPM when I give it gas. Do you daily drive this thing? Have a dyno yet?

Close to the current gap I think Wreck will drop a bit in et by Feb but Dan can up his shot to so...

Maybe some other guys will throw their cars in by then?
