Drew, you and I all do this for ourselves, no one else... no doubt you would've lost traction... heck i was having a hard time and i was on DR's. I don't have near the amount of power you're putting down, i'm sure of it. No worries about the pissing match... you know i'ver never really participated too much in that stuff. But i do like to see numbers and vids

My car has a hard time keeping traction already as it is, launching it at the strip is not only dangerous but most likely will be spinning tires the whole way down on street tires.

People can take that as a "excuse" but I'm over the whole pissing match with other companies. I'll give credit when due and I'll post results/dynos/runs when I want. My car isn't going to be apples to apples to any company car so from my point of view, I frankly don't care.

Yeah, it took a while but it's done. That's all I care about. I'm sure other companies will come out with a setup like mine but I like being the first. There is TONS and TONS of work that goes into my build, it's not a simple "hey lets lower the compression and bump up the boost" If it was, You would see a bunch of these little monsters flying around. I'm happy with the choices I have made with the car and I hope people can respect that.

Good for you. However I'd be anything you would be posting results of your car if they were impressive.

This thread took me on a journey. I started it thinking I was an enthusiast, though relatively amateur, trying to get to the bottom of an issue, only to realize that I have no life.

I agree.

This thread is old news and no reason to revisit it.

I don't see a resolution, but agreed, reputations are damaged permanently, no reason to remind people.
