I mean I could peacock, but I have miatas soooooo.....

For real, get that ET figured out homie. I shouldn't be nipping at a 527 whp car's heels with "only" 350 whp...

So, according to the dyno graph, he starts making more than 350whp at around 6000rpm.

His redline is 8500rpm, so I'm guessing his gearing is not properly using the narrow powerband. This would explain why he's getting same ET as you, but with more mph.

The dyno is most likely not calibrated correctly, and 527whp is much more like 400whp according to the mph.

Or he was short shifting, or double clutching the shifts, or or or... Shifting quickly near or at redline, with that 60foot, there is no way he's only trapping 129. That is laughable. I mean, Id much rather drive a 129mph car than my pos 86mph car, but still.

That 60' is trash for that power on drag radials. For real. There is not a single argument that can be made against that.

There might be reasons WHY it's trash, but it's still trash. Hot doodoo.

His 1/8th mile showed worse ET, and worse MPH, than my supercharged BP did with cat/emissions equipment and a lot more weight. There is no excuse in the world for that if it's making 500+whp. I can only assume he turned the car down to about 300whp for those times posted here, then his ET and MPH makes sense.

Hey guyth, check out this time slip.

Except, I was too lazy to use Photoshop and it's not like I have too many other slips for car C729. This picture actually has way more info, so I get to race a fast car once in a while, so what. That is on drag radials.

Matt's. Depending on your age, of course.

I don't know about you guys, but when my car pops and smokes, it typically means something didn't work right and I will only run a 13.

I'd need a 2-step too if my car didn't make peak torque until 7000rpm

Yeah, don't need a 2 step for any other reason... (building boost on a manual trans turbo car for a good 60'...)
