    no, it had the seats out.

    i think this actually clearly JUSTIFIES my comments about ERMs car not being a legit mph if the fact that another 625 kit had to do major changes to get even close to ERMs trap speed, and still slower

    ERM probably had more going on as well. Just assume weight is removed, race gas, drag tires, etc.

    If you look at all the traps, they are right inline with each other so a MPH or two here or there is usually thanks to weight reduction.

    I did 130 full weight 7.5 psi on the West Coast so decide for yourself.

    I was there, he was on street tires and full weight, racefuel.
    I do recall however he had said something about flashing the car the night before a few times, IAT error codes or something

    hence my point about him spinning created the inflated traps

    You can inflate traps. If you hit high traps with a nice ET it's harder to argue at that point as the power really is being put down.
