This run was done at 19 psi on the upgraded Rob Beck turbos. Car was launched in second gear on drag radials. Car also has meth and upgraded axles which it clearly needs now with all this power.

        Fairness. Probably a word this guy(shiv) is not familiar with.
        I wonder why his "superior" tune(on upped twins) is not smashing this record being that the JB4 is "inferior" and not in the same league as his tune Click here to enlarge

        That is true and he doesn't exactly behave in a manner that is fair but Shiv is clearly referencing a stock turbo tune. We don't have to bash him unfairly, he is what he is.

        Yeah, well I do on to others as others do on to me.

        LM, time to take that top spot on dragtimes in the 335 category!

        Weird, it's up, but not on the overall list yet. Maybe it needs to be approved or something? I saw the entry earlier.

        I may go next week just with street tires, maybe 20psi.. See what kind of trap speeds I get.

        It was up on dragtimes. I had to edit title to reflect No NOS world record Click here to enlarge

        I dont think we even need more boost, if could have run more boost past 5500, it would have been in the bag, or a trans that would have held the power till later in the day Click here to enlarge
