    Congrats Jim. Was this run with the Dymags or with the drag setup you had prepped for Famoso ? Nice numbers under the curve and that thing was well on it's way to 700+ before they lifted. I'm cracking up thinking about two dudes in the trunk when it started losing traction LOL...Who'd they piss off to get that job ??!!! I see this thing making 750whp easy. The transmission holding together is going to be an entirely different story...Hit me up when you're here and I'll roll out to Fantana with ya. Can't wait to see this thing run. Say bye bye to the records.

    A huge congratulations! That's BIG power.

    I can't wait to see how the car is best shifted at the 1/4 mile track.

    Congrats!

    Those are some big numbers. Once you keep that thing strapped down I wouldn't
    be surprised to see over 700HP @ the wheels.

    Good job Weistec!

    Honestly with that much power, first gear is gonna be useless. In stock form it's already very limited as is for traction. Id play with C mode to get it to start in second and feather the throttle off the line, then hit the trans mode button again and throw it into S for the rest of the run. Or, with more practice, M mode all the way short shifting in first. But that'll take prob 10 runs or so to get it right. Either way - records will fall and Jims ricer hooptie will prevail Click here to enlarge

    On the street you're right, first gear will be a joke, but at the strip with a well prepped box on slicks or drag radials it should be fine, especially when paired with the new drag suspension set up. I'm hoping for sub 1.50 60 footers.

    Good luck brother! Looking forward to the results.

    Put some Drags on this thing and get it to the track. Bets on what it explodes first? I think the engine can handle it but the drivetrain..... Any upgrades to the tranny, axles or Rear?
    I'm impressed the rods are taking that, a positive displacement isn't easy on internals.

    The drivetrain is another question.

    Are the cams from the SLS/M159? Or aftermarket?
    I believe the cams are Weistec's own?

    Very cool, Jim. I bet you're excited.

    I don't really care about dyno numbers, as you know I'm a track and MPH guy for that stuff. But the first thing I normally look at with these graphs, is the A/F. Looks like your right around 11.8 or so......and that looks just fine to me. Click here to enlarge

    Air fuel does look pretty good.

    This is definitely a game changer.... Jim always takes things to the next level Click here to enlarge

    Congrats man, these are great numbers Click here to enlarge

    By the way, whatever ET and Trap speeds you get at Fontana, make sure you subtract at least 0.4 seconds off the ET and add at least 4 mph to trap speeds Click here to enlarge

    I went to Formosa a long time ago with my 95 mustang cobra and 996 C4 ...trapped around 96-98 in the cobra and 102-104 in the 996. I always remember people saying its a slow track.

    Famoso is generally slow for most of the year. It is only fast from November to January, and unfortunately that's when the track is closed. This works out for us though because we only rented privately during those times Click here to enlarge

    The owners of Famoso just renovated both lanes.... they removed all the asphalt and re-did the entire track in concrete a couple of months ago, which should provide a much smoother ride and hopefully less drag Click here to enlarge

    By the way, Jim is headed to Fontana not Famoso. Fontana is much slower than Famoso. In fact, now that LACR is closed, I think Fontana is rated the slowest track in California.

    Concrete makes for less drag than asphalt?

    We need to get a group together and open up our own track in SoCal. We don't have a single good track.

    You do get screwed in Southern California. It makes no sense, you are in the car capital of America (everyone drives) and you do not have one good drag strip. Pomona is only allowed to have a few races a year and even Pomona is noting to write home about. Here is the tri-state area we are blessed with so many good facilities in close proximity to us, it's amazing.

    Good luck at the track with your new beast and have some fun no matter how fast she goes. I'm sure you will have a big smile on your face when you are driving.

    I don't get it either Click here to enlarge I guess now is not the time in the economy to get an investment group together although I would like to. If some people could commit I would put in the work to make it happen.
