    LM you hold the record nobody says the opposite, you've made a great run.

    "It doesn't matter if you win by a second or a mile, winning is winning!"

    But to be fair, this is apples to oranges comparison. I've seen the video of your record run, starting in 2nd gear, building a lot of boost AND on a prepped track with virtually zero wheel spin. If you compare the the track Insideline chose for the test you definitely know it was far from ideal for that kind of power.

    vs your run



    Place a single turbo 6AT on that track and conditions and its done.

    @Kalud, you do have a point..however, they did a number of runs, not just one...on top of that, the trap speed is 128.9 and he had DRs on the car

    lol at the Inside line random comments. Unless you are brainwashed by the Vishnu camp the reality is that this is pretty slow for what it is.

    Lol, kalud, what's big boost building off the line in 2nd gear, cause I could only get 4-5 psi. And would really suggest rewatching the soft launches used. Hardly what would correlate to the times I ran.And its pretty fair comparison since every comparison Shiv uses, is vs upgraded hybrids

    @Kalud he's using a 2-step which also builds 5-6psi at least off the line as well as NLS...

    My 6MT quickest 1/4mi world record still stands lol

    lol fest it seems (maybe I should start my sentence with lol and finish my posts with lol, this is how I should talk ?)

    My point initially was about the "same ET" and ".4 slower ET" unfair comparison LM made, comparing 6AT launch on prepped track to 6MT launch on concrete pavement. I found the comment and 15+ lol gross.

    I agree with you about the trap speed, I never tried quarter mile with my car so I have limited experience on that matter, but by comparing quarter miles times and trap speed here and there both LM and Shiv's car should be able to run in the 10s and with 650+ whp with the right track prep (and car suspension / tires) Shiv's car should definitely run deep 10s and much higher trap. I guess its a matter of time. But power is not always just the answer as getting 10s looks harder that the average Joe thinks, its getting a driver's race for sure, and props to LM for that.

    Isnt meth 99 octane? Why else would he use it unless he was running out of fuel?

    It was a pathetic showing. Not our fault Shiv doesn't know how to drive and adapt his technique to extract the full potential for a good ET. Mph is horrible as well, since he was on DRs as well, he should have been much higher. There are great articles on here discussing back end mph on the track..

    Some are banned on the "evil" forum, so here's what Shiv replied:

    Hi guys,As you saw in the video from Inside Line testing we posted a couple weeks ago, launching the car with stock suspension has proven to be a challenge. The best it did was a 60' time of 2.0-2.2s at Inside Line testing. But it was on bare pavement (not VHT prepped like a drag strip surface) so the 1.6-1.7s 60' required to run 10s wasn't going to happen. We have done quite a bit of suspension work in the last month with the hopes that it will hook properly. And by the looks of it, it should the next time it is out. Last week at sac, it ran 11.3s with a 2.0s 60' time. Obviously, it's got the power to run 10.8-10.9 with a good launch. Maybe better on a day that wasnt 80+ deg. We will see soon enough


    Also, the vbox run for the published run was 130mph. The best of the day was a bit over 133mph but the ET was slower since it spun through 2nd. Fwiw, they adjust the trap speed post testing to account for the practice to average mph over the last 66'. This drops nominal trap speeds by 2-3mph. On a cooler day, I'm not sure the car would be able to run a much higher trap since that speed approaches the speed limit in 4th gear and shifting into 5th isn't desirable yet. So all it boils down to is getting a decent launch (1.7s).

    Come on folks, we expected this. A piggy back which lacks proper fueling control over the injectors... How many meth nozzles are we talking about here? The tuning on this big turbo is a total hack job and we all know it. The only thing that's good about it is the hardware.

    Honestly, someone should buy the big turbo from Shiv, sell the proceed online as brand new and then ship the car to Cobb. Rob will have a field day with it and it will be epic.

    My $.03. OK times for a first try but it's also running down hill and had the benefit of weight reduction and a pro driver. The platform itself seems like it should be good for a lot more performance given the drivability tradeoffs. Hopefully they get to a real track and put down some more impressive numbers, or stop referring to it as a 700hp car. Click here to enlarge

    Or just wait for the Steed or Full Race kit and not give Shiv any $$. Its a shame that FFTEC probably won't sell the mani alone.

    I think somewhere he mentioned 4 nozzles, it was certainly a minimum of 4.

    Hahahaha. The vbox has been within .5 mph on every run I've done at atco, a "fast" track.
    The Shiv can try and spin it anyway he wants, but the numbers don't lie. His hardware has potential, but in his hands, its a FAILURE as of right now

    Let's even just say, to help the nuthuggers grasp this, remove my runs, and focus on dzenno's since he has a closer setup... Xx is still faster in ET, and right there with mph, both on track and vbox.remember, that's with reduced timing, not ADVANCED TIMING
