    Finally got the car to go 8s here on the mountain 5800 feet! went [email protected] on 18 psi of boost. In the video you can see the snow falling. Best 60' was a 1.31 which is horrible for the car, but thats okay. it went 8.88 and 5.70 to the 1/8th!

    I can no go to Kentucky where I'm moving with a 8 second pass on the mountain. Got a job with Holley Performance Products as an engineer and move there first of june! Cant wait to go low 8s with it out there and low 5s!

    Haven't been here in a while and figured I would update those who may be curious still!was out driving this car the night before and i got pulled over in it even. No ticket, even though i should have gotten one lol, but it is a true street car!

    Thanks guys! I finally met my goal to having an 8 second streetable car in Denver! Thing doesn't get driven hard on the streets at all, it really isn't as fun to drive because you can never get on it lol

    yeah beginning of June I'll be moving to Bowling Green!
