Default What is the most "BANG" for your buck?

I have a 1999SE without a blower and it goes down the highway great. We've had burn out compitions leaving work. Some mustang GT'* and 454 SS pick up. I know I'm alittle out classed but, When I'm starting to produce some good smoke the rev limiter kicks in. I don't want to blow her up but after a good 25' - 30' she acts like she want'* to stall out. I know imature! I've produced the longest one out of a V6. The V8 guys are impressed. We don't do this everyday . I may grow up one of these days!

I got "yelled at" here at work for that once. it was one of them nights where on my way home, I just had to burn off some stress. Left a nice Tattoo on the parking lot.

It is pretty neat how much you can burn the tires on the N/A engine, ain't it?

I never really look at the tach. Too busy watching what I might potentially hit if I suddenly get traction...

It'* near "red line" 5,500 rmps. Like I said I don't want to blow it up but, I've seen some pictures of some massive smoke shows on here and wondering what they have under the hood? I noticed she lights um up better doing a slight left turn.

I have "Wynns coverage. I'm not going to beat her to death but, if anything breaks it $500 to have it fixed. Too bad it doesn't cover tires!

Those smoke shows are generally Drag slicks

Rear parking brake use might help, along with some flow help (induction, exhaust) to rev better. As long as both tires are spinning you're fine.
