So what did you run?

And the camera needs to be placed higher in the car, and angled down so we can see the track. Without a reference to the ground you might as well have just linked an audio clip. It sounded really fast though.

I couldnt count the times ive almost punched people who laugh or make fun of the turbo etching. Reason being, its an EXTREMELY rare factory windshield that Plymouth offered on this model only in 1989. Now dont you feel stupid?

That run was [email protected] on boost only. I broke the tranny on the next pass so unfortunaty i didnt get a lot of seat time that day. With the nitrous the car should yield mid 11's and trap about 125mph. Not bad for a ricer with a turbo sticker

If I see you around CT sometime, I'll be sure to point and laugh at the turbo decal.

What track are you at? And like sam said try and mount that camera a bit higher.

Was that wheelspin at the launch? And those are baby shifts - car is probably quicker than you think. Of course if your braking trans with those shifts, you might not make one pass shifting harder/quicker.

I think it said in the video that he spun all the way through first on slicks, and that the car is peglegged ... needs a locker. Hookup is definitely hurting that time
