    ESS supercharged stroker 60-130 8.34

    Currently the best 60-130 for the E9X... until I do it. No graph however... I'm sure he will get it up eventually Click here to enlarge

    I can't take it anymore... I can't sleep, Alex, I WANT MY CAR.

    PG was street racing Click here to enlarge

    But I think 8.34 sec is not as fast as I thought it would be. Yes he did say he hit 7.9 something like but let off the gas but was it decline? within 3% ? all of that very very important information was missing.

    He's allowed to post videos of it for some reason... but the site policy is they are not allowed. WTF is with the hypocritical interpretation of their rules to suit certain people?

    He hit 7.9 or something running to 128 mph, not 130... he claimed an uphill incline we will see when he posts the actual graph.

    Either way, I'm just waiting to beat it Click here to enlarge

    I am sure he will get a better time down. He did these runs while driving back from picking the car up.

    Looks like he should be able to put down multiple 7 second runs, when he gets more time in the car.

    Funny how he use to talk down to people for racing on the street.

    Guy is a hyporcite who will pick and choose what ideals to apply that best agree with him at that particular time, pure and simple. He used to say the stroker was the best, he used to say no racing videos, he used to say superchargers were cheap power, he used to say they would upset the balance, etc.

    It has been funny to watch him slowly change and start to catch-up to what people were saying a while ago.

    If he lowers his compression with a thicker head gasket next the cycle of hypocrisy will be complete.

    I think that's a respectable time, especially since he's a 6MT and considering he dropped almost 3 seconds from his NA stroker time. He should be in the 7's with some more runs in better conditions, anyway you slice it, that's moving guys. I just don't get why Roman calls this a "conservative setup", there is absolutely nothing conservative about adding a blower to the S65, and dropping that much time off your 60-130 MPH, regardless if it's only "phase 1" then he will do even better with Stage 2, I suppose that's what Roman means. Click here to enlarge I understand you guys calling Robert out about going FI as he was steadfast against it before and did take some shots, but guys he's come around and it's interesting to see the results.

    Decent time, especially for a non DCT car. Let's see how much he can improve on that. Any details of his CR, boost, rwhp?

    Compression is stock 12.0:1, boost is ~6 psi but they have not officially said, and no dyno numbers but I am betting in the 550 range.

    They are forged stock... and yes. Still, the compression will limit his potential boost unless they drop it. It will not be dropped by building the motor again so this should be fun Click here to enlarge

    That is what makes it so funny when he talked down on the SC's Click here to enlarge When I build my motor, it will be done the right way, like how you are now doing it Click here to enlarge

    Nah, he just did not have the foresight. He thought the stroker was a gift from god and when I told him boost would be the way to go... he pushed to get me banned Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge Well said Drew he is moving! I don't know about you guys but I think the torque has a lot to play with the 60-130 times as well. I mean honestly I thought I would do something like 9.5-9.8 on my 60-130 but I ended up doing 9 flat. I know the G-power kits as more torque especially out of 1st and 2nd I don't know if that makes a difference but now when I shift into 3rd after it engages the car feels like it jolts out.

    And are people testing the results gunning it from 1st all the way until they hit 130?

    or rolling it out then gunning it at 60-130??

    Third gear is very long comparatively so that is probably what you feel once you hook and it goes.

    You don't have to go from first, I doubt most people do.

    I am just guessing but in my own theory starting from 1st rolling out then gunning it would be the fastest time.

    because your are carrying momentum threw out so when you shift each time you are carrying more speed.

    but I am sure just my guess here

    You are right about momentum, that's why you shoudl start anywhere from 35-55mph depending on your car, setup, gearing, ect.
