    Trap speed doesn't tell the whole story. I was trapping around 166mph, yet was running with cars trapping 171mph. JRCart's C63 was trapping around 166mph to I believe, and as you can see I was able to pull on him. So, yes, even a 5mph difference in trap speed doesn't necessarily mean the car will win.

    I hear your point, but it is not about the forum, its about the principle.

    Thanks for posting more vids of your race !

    Just for clarification, this vid is where JRCART's belt slipped and you were having problems with your meth, then you guys raced again and he won ( the original vid of the thread ) and then you raced a third time on meth and race and beat him again.

    Is that correct ?

    Oh and also, I guess the definition of gutted is relative. My car does have 2 seats though! Weight reduction includes: Removal of back seats and trunk cover and lining. Race seats in front. Removal of AC. CF Hood, trunk and roof. But I have also added a good deal of weight back with the turbo kit and roll bar. I am just guessing on the weight of the car around 3200lbs. Car still has door panels and etc. It's not FULLY gutted...

    Ah yes, I know that's going to be a winner when HPF gets it sorted out. I think they said sometime later this year right ? Hopefully all goes well and you get to enjoy your car even more !

    Oh, sorry if I misunderstood. I guess it was just the angle of the vids i've seen in-car that makes me think it's more than it is. I guess semi-gutted instead of fully gutted ? lol. I didn't mean any offense if there was any taken.
