AND HAVE IT SOLO 1 PREPARED LEGAL! SORRY ROCKET BOY, YOU DON'T COMPLY NOW!
, Tire sizing, make that intake proper, sorry no chip mapping need apply, got your 10 point, got a log book, got your burn suit, got your legal seat, etc., etc., etc., etc. and most importably got your driver able to avoid that brick wall!. Better get to work on the car rather than that part time job to pay for it. Merry Christmas Bill!

The car will be back this year in the climbing seen OR it will be going to someone who will ensure it continues on its current path! I won't let a car sit for more than a year, will you Wally?

Funny you should bring that up, Ben. I'm thinking that it won't take much to make the SVreX street legal (I actually have the title for it!). Just got a "worked" valve body from NeedforSpeed, so I'm thinking the 'reX is the car to take the NA/auto 1/4 mile time record away from BudFreak
-Bill
p.s. what, exactly, do you think RacerX wouldn't comply with for FP? (too lazy right now to check the SCCA rule book)

Street legal is a joke as there is nothing on our car aside from the lack of seatbelts, no lightbulbs and non dot tires that isn't street legal. Emissions it wouldn't pass as it doesn't have the factory cats on it but of course that is a $500 pay your annual waiver fee. There are plenty of street legal SVXi out there that wouldn't pay our version PAs emissions and annual inspection. Good you have the title as you'll need it.

As for not being FP I listed a few for ya, however you're confusing yourself even more, FP be Solo 2, not solo 1. Solo 1 is a whole different classing and rule system. The Solo 1 rule book was like a 150 page download just for the car classes and rules! Chipping, remapping and getto size wheels and tires are left too the street classes. Remember we will be running a 4 speed manual dictated by the rules not allowing for more gears than was OEM.

Re: SVX Straight line performance

Take it with a grain of salt:

Dynolicious (which has ALWAYS posted slower than actual times) timed me at a 14.93 @ 92.8mph in my '95!!

I'm not saying I think I ran faster than that, but I would bet money on me running atleast a real 14.9!

Was also on a full tank of gas.

I thinkyou have the wrong thread to be asking this. I'd help but I"m confused as to exactly what you are asking. Maybe your question does make more sense than I'm seeing and I"m just tired from having just gotten home from work.

I"ll try to break the NA stock auto record if I get the Hydra in a set this summer. Local drags are less than 15mins from my house. Last year I finally took the car down and with no spare, full tank, and no junk in the car weighing in a 3720lbs I hit my best time on my second run with.... umm... where did I put those slips?! Oh well I think it's in my sig but it was 16 flat(I think it was exactly 16.002) @ I beleive 86.xxMPH.

Using the ET method, I come up with 96 horsepower
Using the Speed method, I come up with 205 horsepower

Run2(best of the night)
1/4 16.005 at 88.54mph
Using the ET method, I come up with 179 horsepower
Using the Speed method, I come up with 202 horsepower

Run3(vs a vette with a slipping clutch that did 17.007 LOL)
1/4 16.128 at 88.59mph
Using the ET method, I come up with 175 horsepower
Using the Speed method, I come up with 202 horsepower

Run4(last of the night
1/4 16.165 at 88.4mph
Using the ET method, I come up with 174 horsepower

Re: SVX Straight line performance

How about an updated list? Maybe you can slip my 14.088 on it. lol. Kind of sad for a S/C 6-speed. I need to get back to the track when it cools down, now that I have a better tune.

+1 for an updated list. I have high hopes for my cars times, I guess cause hoping is an easy thing to do when your engine is in 50 pieces in the garage

Ciphus, I had a look at your account at Admin level. I can't see anything unusual about it.

I use the Network vBulletin 3 style on the bottom of the page. There are a number of different forum styles or "skins" that can be used.

Just out of interest, which one are you using?

Joe

Not sure why I have not been busy trying to erase both of these records this year. Haven't been to the track at all. Especially Budfreak's time since I do not have nitrous on the SVX. Gawd, I annoy myself. Maybe I'll take off the 19's and have at it again. Kinda annoying no-one has beat this time yet.

Has anyone had any success yet?
