well got it into the 1.3s on the launch for a few passes(felt really good!), and slowly turning up the boost as i continue to map it. best short time was a 1.34 and the 8.68 @163 had a 1.44. still getting used to it, lots more in it

Well never got the numbers I wanted, bunch of 9.9s but went 5 rds and got 3rd place.gonna run the busa tomorrow. Doubt it even runs 10.4s.side note,the 14r is not running great.I went 10.02 @149 but doesn't seem to launch right .like its down on power.th owner went 10.05 @151 he's 20lbs lighter.but went through it on the dyno and it pull 197hpand 113tq.just seem the electronics are restricting the take off
