    Pretty sure in a mile race that thing would lift off the ground.

    I don't think it would make it to a mile. Not trying to hate here or anything, because the car is very fast in all retrospects but, it really didn't lay a smack down on the UGR lambos. Even the first one had a higher trap. Granted it one because it beat it to the line, but it's not UGR fast yet. Not to mention, the UGR R package cars have gone 180+ at these 1/2 mile events. Correcting for head wind, elevation, and other variables, even on a perfect day this car would not see a 180+ mph trap speed. This thing needs some serious aerodynamic work as well. Comparing it to the LMR Camaro, this things front end is way too high and I'd be terrified to take it beyond 180 mph. Those front tires would definitely be off the ground at 200+.

    I'd guess $50-60k. A friend of mine has easily $60k in his 03' TT Cobra.

    you can comfortably build a 1500hp ls1 for 20k assuming you do at least some of the work yourself....plus making the car "safe" will run around 10 grand easy

    there are trans am's trapping that fast in an 1/8 mile, so that particular car is far from the most impressive TA around, but damn fast...it is in desperate need of some suspension and aero work though
