Not content to remain in 3rd place for the rest of the year, INTENSEš took a road trip out to Atco, NJ for one final time trial. The weather could not have been more perfect with sunny skies and cool temps. Track prep was not the greatest but good enough to get an average low 1.5 launch which was all we needed. After realizing that our hopes for 1.4 60 foots would just continue to result in devastated input shafts we decided on a different approach. We turned the turbo up, raised fuel pressure and went for a mild but repeatable low 1.5 short time. This approach worked well and our third pass of the day resulted in the current 3800 FWD 1/4 mile record of 9.649 @ 146.16.
When it can manage 1.4x 60'* at a track like Stanton and when you can have a pass with this many misfires and still managed a 9.74 at 147.66 mph with 80 degree plus outside air temps - you know the car is capable of alot more.Video
FYI this is also at 23 psi wait till the boost is turned up to 28+ psi! Wait till you see what is in stores for the fall! - I know at least one of the cars is going to be in the 8'*. It will be intresting what the B&R car will run at the end of the year.
