    Another reason could be he just spinned all the way since you guys went from a low gear. Next time you guys should go from 50-60mph. That will be a way different stroy if he really has 400hp. Good Kill by the way! I hate **** Talkers!

    Or how about lets quit the meanlingless dyno numbers game and get some track times/trap speeds. Dyno numbers have so many variables they are pretty much useless when judging a car's real world potential. Trap speed doesn't lie even if you do have crappy traction.

    Dyno numbers = good for tuning.
    Track Numbers = good for judging a car's true usable power

So now I guess he came into the parking lot wanting to run..in fact some said he was talking all this mess and pointing at my car...huh...otay.

    His mods: psi-fi 400 turbo kit...
    My mods: basic boltons ...pump gas w/boost turned up 2lbs.

    1st gear roll: 1st gear I immediately pull...wham I bang second...just as quick I bang third.....wheres the srt ?...bang fourth...then slide into fifth and jam it into sixth....
    Low and behold the srt is around 5-7 cars behind...No lie...

    2nd try..same roll: same result....oh and its all on tape...just gotta get one of the guys to get it on tape...

    A nice guy...at least when I talked to him..guess he was talking trash before hands...not to me but...in general...

    Moral: chalk one up for the little guys...the subarus represented last night... srt....NEXT

    I see very little clutch dropping and lots of clutch slipping...
    always better to replace the clutch than the transmission IMO. Besides, cooking clutch smells so gooooood
