I have thousands of dollars worth of these books straight from The Tuning School. I am well on my way to a tuning library. Figuring stuff out is nice. And I do that too. But to have this collection of these specific procedures and strategies. It really does give me an edge. Because when I get stuck I have a resource to fall back on that is so much more reliable than what assholes type here on the internet and in forums. What is in these books is known good data. The best stuff on earth. If you read it in these books you can accept it as truth. And the procedures in these books will always bring you to a good and professional quality tune.
How Come You Never Beat a Hellcat street racing then or at the track ?
The Dodge Demon ?
How Come No Twin Turbo Custom built all Race cars came out of your Shop packing 1000-5000 Hp ?

The B15 way back in the C5 has claimed a handful of hellcats in stock or near stock form and lost to 2 that were seriously hopped up. They are heavy cars and not the ultimate racecar you think. Actually they kinda suck as a racecar when you add in how well they turn and stop. But I gave up on trying to convince you of all that.

The B15 in the C6 Grand Sport is a whole new animal with a tune based off a ZL1 camaro(LSA). It now races new z06's which I think are a bit more intimidating than your dear pussycat.

So the problem there is that the only folk that want 5,000hp are enthusiasts like you and me. And we like to build for ourselves, don't we? So what are you and ED hoping to build an entire business of the small handful of folk you will find who want to fund someone else to build their high hp racecar? That might work if you guys are just trying to stay busy for the summer.

Wouldn't it be great if rich guys that weren't into cars enough to know how to work on them wanted 5,000hp so bad they would pay someone to set it up for them?

Read that question 3 times.

The more I watch this run the happier I get..


Starts at 2:05. Good weight transfer. No tire spinning. And shifts right at 6k each time.

My point being away from a drag strip not too many recognize what your cell phone app tells you because of how inaccurate they all are.

And you are not supposed to be nervous. At all. Or in any way. I don't race for time buddy. That hobby is for you. I have said that. I am too good at what I do to spend time on it without pay or to gamble for pay. I can only goto the track to play with the things I got paid to build. And those are the only times I will goto the track. So don't worry I will never be as fast as your imagination.
Wiz,

Your lack of Drag racing experience is showing.

And Brian, I am dissapointed that you did not catch this either.

The 60 ft time's are the 60 ft times.

The R/T HAS NOTTHING TO DO WITH IT!!!!!!

You can have a 5 minute reaction time and your 60 ft times witl be what ever the 60 ft times are!!!

The reaction time is the time between when the light turns green and when your front tires break the electronic light beam.

The 60 ft time starts when the light beam is broken.

If I had a 30 second reation time would my 60 ft time be a negative 28 swecond????

And by the way... there is no way you can hit 1.4 sec 60 ft times without sticky tires. preferably wrinkle walls.

You may get 1.6 with drag radials

Watch the pros sometime.

If both cars run the exact numbers the best R/T wins

You can have a better ET and still loose!

Very Bad Ass !

Was researching electric water pumps to get max Hp To the Ground.

5000 Hp is Pro Mod Street Outlaws.

Baseline has become 1000 Hp now in drag race world with power adder.

Plenty of poor man 1000 Hp race cars home built out there now Nationwide.
I would estimate at 2000 of them.
Not a single one came out of your Shop VetteXperts.

Crower Ti Rods I have maybe worth 40-50 HP( due to light reciprocating mass) more I read on an Indy Car Race engine blog.


No way to calculate and predict.
Just have to build it and race it test.


I seen Scott Bloomquist Race at LaSalle Speedway.
Chicago's best with 950 Horsepower was there on dirt.
200 laps into the race Bloomquist was 10 laps ahead.
I asked Scott in the Pits what connecting rods he had.
I HAVE GRP TITANIUM.

Wow.

That engine shot was before I put the Custom fabbed intake, Nitrous and pro-stock evac syetm on it.

That was from a Car show at McCormick Place.

Chevey vettefest I think.

If you look at the pics listed here under my corvette pics, you will see the car pulling the fronts off the ground with nitrous.

You will also notice that I chromed a lot of stuff including brackets.

I like the OOOh Ahh factor when I pulled the hood up in the staging lanes.

Also those hi-perf valve covers were a set of only three made for chevy racing.
