You plan on sticking your fingers while the engine is running?

Lol, the announcer commentary is awesome in this video:




"We've got no information on the car on the right... it looks like a mazda miata..." Then it runs low 9's.

I wonder what kind of modifications he had to make to the chassis besides the rollbar to keep it from flexing. Unless thats enough. I know nothing so I have no idea what it takes to put 900 hp in our cars and keep them from disintegrating at ludicrous speed.

Forgive if I'm ignorant to drag racing and blind to what was really in the videos, but is a 9.84s pass considered a '9 second car', and is a 9.21s pass considered an '8 second car.'

9.9999999999999999999999 is considered a 9 second pass just like a 8.99999999999999999999999999999999999991 is considered an 8 second pass.

ive seen this car in person about a year ago. He was at the In N' Out Tampa meet on a Wednesday night. The car looked sweet with a t67? single turbo on the RB engine. Clean too.

Does it really take 900hp to run high 9's in a miata?

There was a guy running 9s with just over 600hp several years ago. It was an NB too.

If I understand correctly, this guy ran 9s with less power and a 5 speed. Now its making 900hp with a powerglide and is running 8s.
Huge difference between 9s and 8s.
