Great point Scott and to add further to this discussion the main reason VAC hit 10's when they did was because they were smart about it and took the proper steps to get there. They were the first to use a line lock correctly, and run the correct DR's in incredible DA, so this notion that VAC just focuses on turns is nonsense as they went to great lengths to do it the right way. I always said when another car does these things as VAC did, in good air, that record can and will be broken, but it certainly isn't easy, so props to anyone who runs 10's on this car.
