Tonight me and Chris took the car to the street races. Everyone there loved the car and I appreciated all the compliments.

After a while the racing began. I raced a Supercharged Cobra with mods twice, from a 50 roll and put multiple cars on him both times with only 22psi of boost.

Next I raced the Cobra and a Trans-Am with hella mods and a 150 shot of nitrous (or at least that's what I was told it had) and I walked them both down. Chris told me the Cobra actually beat the Trans-Am and I beat em both.

Finally I raced a Camaro-SS with mods, and put about 10 car lengths on him and called it a night to not beat up on the car too much.

ALL ON VIDEO.

As soon as I get the video from the Cobra guy, I'll post it up here.

FUN NIGHT!!!!

You got the power to back up the bling.

Putting 10 cars on another in a race is really sad. I hate to be that far behind.

Good kills!

When I get back I can help get it online...if you don't mind.

Next week should be fun, I'll get some better fuel in the car too.

leo, you werent having problems with the switch, it came COMPLETELY OFF, lol! hey brad, im the guy that was with leo. it took us a while to realize why we were losing so bad but after we got pulled over by the cop, who let us go, we looked under the hood and sure enough the switch had come ubolted and was just sitting on top the head. we rode back to a friends house and fixed it but by that time we didnt know where you went. oh well, maybe next week. we tried the car again later with the switch on and could not keep the tires on the ground. hope to see you up at BJ's again!

he said he was low on nitrous that night, and actually he was walking me pretty hard! thats when i knew something was def. wrong!! because i pull him when i spray..so like i said on the other boards, ive got my problem sorted out now, and ide like another go at it, with your car around 20#'s or so...even though HIGH BOOST will be reeeallly addicting!! and you probably wont want to turn the boost back down...but i think i may have someone to run you on 30lbs that will put up a good fight :)

By reading your post sounds like you cant handle the fact that you lost to a real Beast.
GOOD JOB BRAD

its kinda hard for you to understand the real situation considering you live 3000 miles away and obviously were not there. let brad tell you exactlly how bad he beat us and you will immediately notice that something was wrong, i dont think a 550hp supra would put bus-lengths on a near 600hp cobra. i verified the microswitch coming off myself as i was the passenger in the car. i also know about 10 other people that saw this, whether you believe us or not is up to you, just telling you what happened.

brad, car is awesome and is running great, hope leo gets a rematch sometime, i know i will be looking forward to it.

I posted this in another thread, I'll repost it here. There are several key factors contributing to the race even if he sprays a 100 shot.

1) Weight. My car weighed 3389 before I removed the stock turbos and went single. That's like a 40 pound weight savings. I'm one of the top 15 lightest Supras recorded on hardtop registry.

The cobra weighs 3800 pounds not including the driver. I guarantee I have 300 pounds less than that car. That's gonna take some horsepower to overcome.

2) Gearing and redline-Notice his car made tons of torque, and that means the car makes hella good power down low. It's set up more for 1/4 mile, bottom line. I'm not sure what the redline is on that motor but everytime he shifted last night I gained like a half a car length because I didn't have to shift for way later in the RPM range.

I'm guessing a 600hp Supra beats a 600hp Cobra due to weight and gearing assuming everything else like traction issues are eliminated. Just a guess though.
