We've all see people blow motors on a dyno. Blowing it during a race would be way better. Plus you may not blow it anyways and could still dyno.

Also when you get your built block in and re-tune the car for more power/boost we'll want to see dyno plots then. seeing how it stacks up vs a modded z06 is more interesting

I love the idea of a MSM taking a Z06, but I honestly don't see it happening. I AM curious about how close it'll be.
I've not been in a C5 Z06, but I have driven/ridden in a C6 Z06, and it could really lay down the power AND it was much easier to modulate the throttle. My Miata is hopeless at getting power to the ground. :(

Is there a reason this race hasn't happened yet?

Switched to a turbonetics evo spring now at 26.2 psi and going now to shim this bitch and turn up the boost more. I cant wait to show you girls the video . I will say this: my brakes are slipping now trying to brake boost at this level and timing

Video will be epic, hopefully your motor holds up.

Didnt happen tonight. FAIL. Tomorrow its dyno time and then work on Pusha NA then maybe is race time after. Its almost stupid to race at this point without r comps or slicks because all i do is burn the tires
