That's pretty cool, can't really tell what's going on though. That's why night race films suck to me. You know something really cool is happening, but you can only perceive like 5% of it.

Yep night vids do suck. but this ones more about the sound than anything i mean it wasnt much of a race and we both new it wouldnt be. Thats the middle of second gear. I just love the sound of my supercharger.

Funny story I was driving in the rain one day and gave it some gas let off and hit it again (spinning the tires) and it kind of sounded like a police siren and 2 cars pulled over and looked all around for a cop or emergency vehicle

I beat a V6 Mustang in my Saturn the other day with my freshly re-built and bored motor. Punk kid thought he was something hot until he got beat by a plastic 4-banger running on all engine! Can't wait for the turbo! That should put me around 300hp!!

Funny part was I wasnt even looking for a race. I accidentally popped the new clutch (hard to get used too) and spun the tires. Ooppps.

LOL, I didn't realize Saturns had such a following. I wouldn't mind having one of the new Ion Redlines or Skys though.

You've done traction bars, polyurethane mounts/bushings, grippier tires, played with the tire pressures, had a fat guy sit on the hood, and all? The SRT-4s don't seem to have much trouble withwheel hop and some of those guys arepushing 500hp. Course they're problem is the engines pop too easily.

I was making and selling motor mounts for a wile tried drag radios and fabed up my own traction bars. I also made chrome molly frame stiffeners. And I have 3 torque dampeners. The fat guy would jiggle to much and gross everybody out LOL. It spins no mater what ever from a 40 roll of course my rev limiter is set at 8200rpms so I drop it into 2nd at 40.
