Performance and lore: The best lap time at High Plains Raceway near Denver is 1:58.8 with track tires. The best dyno numbers were 576tq/677hp at the wheels. Yes, even with limited slip at all 4 wheels, the tires do break loose at times. Although somewhat highly strung, this car has proven to be ultra-reliable. It is my main Daily driver and track car. With E85 I run 32 lbs of boost on the street. The dyno runs were with E85, NOS blowing across the front of the intercoolers and that same 32 lbs. The ride is somewhat stiff but still comfortable enough for street driving. The car is an absolute blast to drive and beckons you behind the wheel. Thanks: I have to thank, first of all, my main mechanic and fabricator Dave Jones of S-Line Motorsport. In addition I’d like to thank Brendan Rudak of Apikol for some beautiful welding and fabrication work. He also handled the tuning of the 034 standalone EMS. Thanks again to these two professionals who can make dreams a reality. God bless.
