The 0.1 second 0-60 difference between the max and Greenzilla is because the Zilla weighs more. I have the max beat soundly at the 1/4 now. And I have style and handling
Ok fine then. I will hook up the Bonneville then we will have to heavy *** cars racing on the track.

Small cuts in the tire tread that allow the pads to grip irregular road surfaces better. Try doing a google for siping.

The only chance I may have its hoping my 255 ZR rated tires reduce wheel spin, I get my intake...the exhaust system helps, and use that power shift in 3rd to hold my mid gears for longer...

But that 3.5L Nissan mill must be able to wind up something nice....should be interesting indeed

I'm not to worried about NA Bonnevilles or even a stock L67
