The answer is moar tire. Or apparently Racelogic traction control from what I gathered from the conversation last night.

^ This. Most people ask, "What does it do in the quarter mile?" I usually respond, "I have no traction."

buddy of mine with 400+ actually went through the traps sideways

12.6 @ 127 if I remember correctly

takes as much steering to keep it straight as it takes for some to get sideways

Nice! I still have to get my car on a Dynojet...
The car has been a solid runner. I recently received that "FB memory" notification that showed me a pic of the block being built I posted 3 years ago. The first and only engine I have ever built has been track reliable since then.

I finally did it! Tomorrow is the first event of the season and I have been prepping the car. I found an exhaust leak and found that the turbo flange cracked at the manifold. I wrote an email to Abe at ArTech for repairs. I'll post pics when I pull the manifold.

Whole flange is loose. The plan is to send it to Abe to get it fixed and reinforced.

Thanks, but it's too far gone to use. I'll be at the track tomorrow in another car.

Here is my manifold on crack. It is cracked all the way around. That last part by that stud is all that is holding the flange on.

This manifold has been on the car for four years with heavy abuse on the track. Every event I run a full tank dry. Mostly at WOT and hitting redline.

The rest of the manifold is cherry. I think adding gussets to the turbo flange should solve the issue. This manifold is a testament to ARTech's builld quality. I do have a downpipe brace at the transmission bolts. I'd like to get the turbo flange replaced and use a TrackSpeed M8 Inconel stud kit. I already ordered the stud kit.

OOf, Was this over time or did the crack initiate rapidly when you noticed?
