I wasn't saying that the car in the posted vid is Intense'* car. I was saying that Intense'* car is quicker than the car in the posted vid. I believe the car in the vid is ZZP'* turbo car.

And yes, BadSSEi is a completely different car (Bonneville) that uses a Blowzilla supercharger, not a turbo.

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.
