Thanks bud! I may have to take you up on that offer as I dont know how much I'd really use my own after having a nice 60-130 run.

M33,
I'm trying to find some reviews of the new Vbox but I'm sure it's good. I'll keep you posted - I love products that work well with Apple stuff. I may have to just grab one...

I just heard from my vbox buddy that the new vbox sport runs at 20Hz which means it's twice as accurate as the old unit, and that makes it a good buy.

He's also confirmed with the guys at racelogic that it's compatible with his online vbox analysis software at www.vboxtools.com. So if you buy this unit, you'll have a great unit and your 60-130's can be verified online through that site.

Ah this sounds too good to pass up on. I told myself no more mods for this month after getting the P3 Vent. I guess April is coming a lil early...maybe I'll celebrate Easter. Make some egg curry.

Ah totally forgot dude but there's really no way I can make it. Swamped with getting everything ready for the stations we are working on.

Heh yeah the no more mods part was supposed to apply until we closed on the stations but with lawyers being lawyers I had to break that. Ordering the Vbox and a gopro today :/

It's been on my mind bud.

Was just about set on one but I don't have a Vbox or GoPro at all. At least I have a steering wheel . I still can't decide on which wheel. There's nothing really useful on the electric one for me besides shift lights since I have the P3 but even then I have shift lights there and on my tach. I need to check yours out again in person and grip it at the top to see how it feels. I'll stop by one of these days just been mad busy.

Well now that I just talked myself out of an electric wheel...

what tires do you guys find the best for being supercharged. I have 20's and hankook evo v12's I cant get traction to save my life as evidenced by an extremely horrible quarter mile that I won't even mention. I realize I would have to ditch the 20's. AD08's? PSS?

Ditch 20's and go with 18 for drag race. If you can fit 17 it's better. And also ditch the V12.

Nice work! Get me the slip and DA info, etc. That's a great ET/Trap, especially for a 6MT, congrats.
