He doesn't have slicks and he didn't launch what did you expect to happen at a 1/4 mile event?
Andrew, again why are you boasting about AA's highest rated kit vs ESS' lowest rated kit? Any objective person would find this a bit odd, and perhaps misleading. Nothing wrong with the run, I enjoyed it, but when one car is running more boost, you would think the outcome would be as is it was, also I'm not sure why LM started in 3rd gear at those speeds, but I wasn't there, maybe he wasn't hooking in 2nd.

Forget the ET, but slicks are not going to improve your traps significantly on this car if you are hooking most of the way down the track. In the vids AK's car has no trouble going through all the gears, the ESS cars were on street tires during some of the runs as well, and trapped higher, but don't you find it odd that ESS' lowest rated kit with a slightly smaller pulley, still slightly out trapped AA's highest rated kit and most visible car with more boost, same day, same track?
