    Guys, it was the stock idler pulley that broke, I broke a couple pre-blower, they are cheap plastic peices of crap. No clean passes, my first few were just to practice launch.

    I was there - and yeah, out of the hole that thing was almost doing wheelies. No wheel spin but the car is building revs so damn fast the trans is having a hard time keeping up - especially the 1-2 upshift. I think there is some torque limiting going on...but man, that thing is a monster. Too bad whomever Evosport used for the paint screwed the pooch bigtime. total HACK job.

    That last vid (the in-car one) sure looked like a good launch and then he was in the throttle all the way through the traps... I thought someone said he didn't get any clean passes in before the pulley broke?

    Either way, I'm sure once he gets the pullies sorted, along with a fast track in good weather, that this will be mid-low 10's motor + F/I, and *could* be a 9 second car motor + F/I + nitrous (if he ever chooses to run it that way). JMHO.

    That sure looked like a full pass to me too and smoking out of the hole. Yes he tagged the limiter during the 1 to 2 shift and it sounded like short shifting after that in manual mode. I'm sure they will get it sorted soon.

    cturbos does the car shift in auto ?

    Definitely way more left in it based on what the vids showed so no question about that. I just thought I read that it didn't make any full passes due to the belt or pulley failing, maybe he said clean. Not sure...

    Thanks

    I don't know if anyone saw it....but I posted the following over on MBW:

    "I have a video of the run, but considering my lack of respect for the way this site is run I'm not going to post it over on:

    20 minutes later my entire post was deleted - Seems MBW is still up to their same old tricks. But what pisses me off is that I didn't violate the TOS, so how can they delete my posts ?

    Heh, don't expect them to play fair or even follow their own guidelines.

    No PM's, nada...just deleted the entire post. I was expecting them to remove the BenzBoost reference, but I guess I can't even say I have no respect for the site either.
    No, didn't run my BS, but I did take a run in my supercharged Range Rover. 15 sec at 95mph LOL

    I understand that it's their site and they can really do whatever they want. But isn't there some sort of legal action that someone could take regarding free speech ? I don't remember reading anything in the TOS or agreeing to give them control of what I post on their site. What are your thoughts? I got plenty of time and money to make things difficult for them if it helps the membership and/or heightens awareness Click here to enlarge

    It's a private forum so although free speech is guaranteed and one would expect it to be allowed even loosely due to the ideals of our nation they are well within their rights to prevent you from speaking freely on their forum.

    My thoughts are that your posts become their property once you make them, unfortunately the law is on their side. You authored them, but they can do what they want with them including removing them. The main thing is for others to see just how insane their censorship is. The userbase has to get fed up.

    The best thing to do, really, is simply to focus here because you can't change them. The only option really is to bolster a viable alternative. If you want to invest, feel free Click here to enlarge
