    You think you will ever take Slowass to a better altitude to see what it will run?

    Automatic transmissions cost extra, so uh, no...a manual won't bring more money.

    I have my fingers crossed, but I am hoping to run at Ennis outside of Dallas in September.

    01 Formy-A4. 6.0 Swap, full bolt ons, mostly stock suspension, minor head work, Futral tune and cam. 44xWHP 411TRQ.
    ~1st-35 roll i pull maybe a fender to 130.
    ~2nd-45 roll i let him jump b/c his car is in drive due to slipping tranny when he tried to start in whatever gear he need to start in. He pulls 1 car and we shut it down at 100.
    ~3rd-20 roll he spins bad and i pull by alot but i shut it down after 95.
    ~4th-35 roll dead nuts until i miss 4th. :-(

    01 Mustang GT-5-speed. Stock block and heads. Full bolt ons, 125 Direct Port NOS system, minor suspension, 4:11 gears. 37XWHP 47X TRQ.
    ~1st-2nd gear pulls from 35. He jumps out about half a car and we end up dead even till 135.
    ~2nd-3rd gear pulls both dead even till 100 then i pull a fender or so.

    07 Roush w/2.3 Whipple.Whipple 2.3 HO swap @10lbs-485WHP unkown TRQ
    ~1st run us both in 2nd from a 40ish. Dead even till 115ish.
    ~2nd run i have to shift into 3rd from him wanting a almost 50 roll and im at 3400RPMs. He pullls a car untill i build RPMs then i hold him the same until 125.
    ~3rd run same as second run except we went to 135.

    01 SOM WS6. Futral Heads, cam and tune. Full bolt ons.(437WHP 401WTRQ)
    ~40ish roll. I jumped a little off the line(maybe half a car to a car) and held decent till 115-120 i think. It looked like he was creeping back up a little but we didnt race to a real high MPH cause of traffic.

    95 RHD Supra. Independent Spool Exhaust Manifold, BIG Front Mount, Hard Pipes, intake and tune.(351WHP Unkown TRQ)
    ~40 roll I pulled about 5-7 cars the first race.
    ~ The second run was about 4 cars or so but after 110 he was holding his own and i stopped pulling on him i think.

    98 Z-28. LS6 intake and TB, full bolt ons, TH-350, 4:10s(441WHP 411WTRQ)
    ~From a 45 with both limited traction for 3 races we were damn near dead even all teh way to 130ish(until he ran out of gear)

    My old Srt-4. Full bolt on stage 2 untuned(291WHP 343WTRQ)
    ~45 roll I pulled roughly 4 cars to 130....its quick but he also cant drive it good yet...but i still would have pulled pretty hard.

    u get all the good races

    My biggest problem with running down there will be gearing.
    124MPH is my current top speed in 4th on a 26" tire.

    Not initialy but in the long run manuals do. Go look for an identical car used and the manuals will bring more money than an auto.
