    Because it's easier to get dyno numbers than a slip and you don't special tires, to pay an entrance fee, wait in line, adjust your tire pressure, make sure you get the correct launch, or worry about breaking something.

    A timeslip doesn't tell the whole story either this all valuable data and ideally you want to have a timeslip AND a dyno.

    It's probably easier to get track numbers. Atco for instance is open 3 nights a week for TNT. No need to adjust tire pressure if you can drive. You can break a lot on a dyno as well. Less likely sure, but it happens. Forget launching, slip th clutch a little and launch. That will get you an ideal trap and you will know where you stand. Not to mention dynos have a lot of variables as do tracks, bu trap speeds ar 9/10 times more consistent between different tracks. More consistent than dynos I mean. Cheaper too. $70 vs $20.

    10's are no joke

    I don't see how.

    And dyno shops are open how many days for how many hours a day? And do you need to wait in line, or get delayed due to fluid spilling the track, worry about someone coming in your lane, and does your dyno change based on your launch, prep, tires, etc.?

    Ya I hear about a lot more parts breaking during a dyno pull rather a WOT strip launch... right... um what? A strip launch is far more stressful on the drivetrain no debate here.

    I completely disagree with your logic here a dyno is much more convenient, requires far less prep, is less time consuming, safer, less stressful on the drivetrain, and more consistent due to not having as many external variables.

    A slip is great but it is hardly as easy of a way to get meaningful data as a dyno. Once again, ideally one would get both, but to suggest using a drag strip in lieu of a dyno doesn't make much sense to me when I want to see my supercharger results. I have never seen a timeslip with a torque curve.

    Yes, 100% stock VF620. No cheater pulley or cheater tune, just full exhaust. Our car made just about the same power when we ran it on the Mustang....

    The powerband looks really nice. Bet it's a lot of fun to drive.

    Is this on stock internals/cams/valves/etc?

    I believe stock everything, but definitely internals
