greenzilla here. im not much of a top speed person. but when a car smokes tires in a 1-2 shift, then you have my attention.


btw, does 8-ball break traction on the 1-2 shift on street tires?

Actually, well uh maybe I should say anything yet, but I DO have my eye on one, and the owner is aware that I want to buy it. Anyone that followed a thread I made in the lounge, I said I had an announcement to make in the future. I haven't been in contact with the owner so I don't wanna say anything.

8-ball does. It'* a little easier for me because I develop my torque peak at a lower RPM. But on streets, 8-Ball and Zilla both break 2nd loose. I can do it at a prepped dragstrip with only 18psi. This is why I'm goin back on slicks, despite thinking I'd never resort to that. I HAVE to to determine how much power I've actually added over the last 4 years.

My choice? Red Deer. Before she was totalled, of course. That car was pristine.
