100 foot pounds of torque will accelerate you just as hard at 2000 rpms as it would if you were making that 100 torque at 8000 rpms in the same gear, yet, per the formula, the horsepower would be "double"

so even if you can redline to 9000rpms, the car is not any quicker from my perspective.

Whats funny about this... is that Frank has no part in that car or setup. It was entirely built by Charlie.. the owner of the car and of Top Setup here in Chicago.

Frank is a skilled BS artist... thats about the best way to describe him.
I didn't quite worded that correctly. So Charlie hit me up... it is now revised to "We were instrumental in getting the TOP SETUP K20EG involved. We also test drove the car prior to letting ORIDO & DRIFTKING drive. K20EG received perfect 100 pts from TSUCHIYA and 97 pts from ORIDO on subjective rating. Which confirms GhettoRacer's abilities to objectively rate a car. Charlie/TOP SETUP FULLY BUILT AND TUNED this K20EG sleeper."

I got his car into the show. It's a good car. I wasn't trying to take credit for building/tuning his car because I didn't do that. But if it wasn't for AKMEE he would not be there in the first place.

Oh and for the record.. the miata/CRX HF is like 2100 lbs vs the del sol being 2300ish.
what chu talking about? define **** wheel base? is it because it's relatively short?
