Airstrip Attack: ESS VT2 M3 vs Ford GT w/SC upgrade

I got a chance to run a beast - Ford GT with an upgraded supercharger.

The camera was pointing ahead most of the time as I assumed I was going to get walked badly.

When I turn the camera at the end of the run, you can hear me hitting fuel cut-off at the top of 5th gear as I forgot to shift as I was more worried about adjusting the camera lol.

Thanks guys!

I'm very happy with how the car has turned out. The VT2 blower with the catless exhaust + high octane gas is such a simple combination that is extremely reliable and makes exceptional power. I thought the GT was going to put 5-6 cars on me so this one really surprised me!

Did you get a chance to talk to the guy afterwards?
He must have been, "WTF is in that thing!!!!???"

Thanks guys.

The GT owner (Greg) is a cool guy. I don't think he was surprised at all because he knows Drew and so he's aware of what a supercharged M3 can do. Even with the upgraded SC I think I still had a higher dyno number but was expecting him to be able to pull away given his weight/aero advantage.
