    As for the numbers go, I know they don't match. That is why I did 3 back to back runs and the times were 12.65 @117.005 12.77 @118.651 12.72 @118.423
    Trap? I assume 60 foot. I slip the tyres when it shifts to 2nd and sometimes 3rd.

    As far as a video goes, if I don't have a slip or anyway to prove it besides the witnesses then I don't have a video. If i did I would just post it and be done with all the argueing back and forth about whether or not I am telling the truth.

    am i missing something? first it's 124 mph. then it's 118? my black car has just about the same mods with a 3400 converter, stock TB and MAF. also, you dyno'ed 400 rwhp NA? stock motor? no cam? no heads? no headers? i'm at 308 rwhp. so, this part is hard for me to buy.

    You need to read all the posts and read carefully. As I stated earlier, the car has modifications done to it that not everyone needs to know about. Ok, I went back and read them and realized I lefted out that the 3 back to back runs where on a different setup then the first run. The last setup was with 100 horse shot. The three back to back runs. The original setup was with the 125 shot. The 124. Hopefully that clears things up. If not, then just discredit me. I am tired of argueing about it. If you want to see it, I am more than happy to go to the dragstrip to show anybody. I live in Oklahoma and go to tulsa to run.

    now you see where we have issues. i understand that having dome so much to the car, you can get things jumbled up. i have two cars. i also understand you don't want to tell everyone what all you have. we are a pretty smart bunch of people here and are willing to help out anyone. so, when things don't add up, we'll question you about it. you can say you have a cam. you don't have to tell us which cam it is.

    Ok, I never thought of that. The car has a cam, head work, and an intake. I apologize to everybody for getting a little excited earlier and I appreciate everyones knowledge and opinions. Sometimes I just take them the wrong way.
