    Did you see the intake holes in my hood....air ain't getting any colder than that.

    No worries, im always open to new ideas. Earl has a slightly different intake but everything else is identical so we will see whose is the better set up.

    Joe...no. I have the video but forgot the camera before I left.

    Other than an observant Canadian border guard, no one outside our group has seen what I have done. Now only if I could meet up with the car to run it would be all good. Jim will likely be the first one to hit our number but hopefully I won be too far behind.

    Thanks for the offer but i would have declined. I prefer to keep a bit of a low profile until I actually run.

    Perhaps in that I am helping develop parts but as far as driving goes not really. It would be great if I could out a much as say Keith but I just don't have enough time. At this point I will be lucky to be with the car unil June or July so I just want to keep expectations in check.

    I think perhaps the cam was left in the huntington beach suite...I think there is some interesting footage of Nick! In all seriousness I will have my car looked at and will let you know. I think I have two cameras so perhaps the guys put everything in one vehicle.

    Why would I be joking? We haven't seen any Weistec S/C CLK's run 60-130 times.

    Because they are busy running where it really matters.

    What, 1/4 mile? That's fine.
    Still curious to see what 60-130 time they run.
    Also curious to see how they do against other high HP applications (modded GTR's, modded 997TT's, etc...)

    Because 60-130 means nothing. Does it show how the car launches (no because the car is already moving) Does it show how the car runs in the qtr mile (no)? Does it show the top speed(no). Does it show a cars true power (no because not all cars are geared the same). In my opinion it was a test made up by gold chained Porsche drivers who don know how to race their cars. And of course I don't even need to mention how stupid it is to be going 130 on a public road.

    Perhaps it is obvious but you will never see such a stupid test from me.

    And if that isn't enough, jons63AMG would be telling us why his 60-130 is better!

    That's fine.
    Of course it doesn't show how the car launches, and how it does on the 1/4 mile. Its not supposed to.
    Its called a 60-130 run for a reason.
    If you think its a stupid test then don't do it.

    Have you done any runs with other high HP cars, or are you just concentrating on the 1/4 mile?

    I don't race on the street if that is what you mean (which also explains why the 60-130 run is irrelevant to me). This car has only made 7 or 8 1/4 mile runs and those were done last aug and oct in Vegas. I am hoping to run the car at some point in the next couple of months and luch will of course determine who i run. Sorry if my last post seemed harsh but I stand by my statement the test was made up by a bunch of gold chain Porsche guys!!!!
