Then I remember how fucking fast my car is, and the evil grin that stretches across my face when I first feel the g-forces. I remember that I don't give a damn what they think, and that what drove me to the forums in the first place was my passion for cars, and the desire to go faster. Then I go back to where it all started, up in the canyons at night, the cold wind slicing past my open window, a clear sky above, and the sound of turbo spool echoing off the forest below, as I push it faster... and faster...

Feel better?
I spent many summer nights in those same woods...

i am by no means a nutswinger on either side, just my observation... the e63 even offered to run anyone that wanted a good fill in car for comparison to terrys car, did anyone take him up on that? the tuned e63?
yea i did! lol got eaten by about 3-4 cars... Terrys car is something else... To pull on that e63 top end is crazy...

I know this for a fact the car that I drive holds the Stock Turbo 1/4 mile record at 11.3 at 122.8mph. What do you the mysterious Alaskan have to show for your self before you call me out.

PS we are not approaching 500whp we are passing 610whp on a 6AT that's a big difference.
That is truly amazing running 11.3@122 on stock twins. Sounds like you have hit the 1/4 a lot. Are you nervous that you won't beat your stock turbo record with your single? I would think that going with a single you would be super eager to ht the track! Esp after all that money for plenty more power. Up to the owner though. Good luck when you can manage the time to see what she does.

I mean no disrespect, but that just sounds a little silly to me.

Now you don't know me from a hole in the wall, so my opinion really should mean anything to you.

I was no slouch with my FBO+meth ... 11.538@118.673MPH.

The single turbo is much faster than my FBO+meth setup. Now I don't just say that to make myself feel better about what I spent on the upgrade.

I'll eventually take the time to go run the car again.

I wouldn't confuse the single turbo upgrade between the different transmission types (6MT vs. 6AT). The 6MT guys are doing more than just fine - with their extra revs and a real transmission - they guys are making 100+ WHP.

The 6AT crowd (single, RB, ASR, Vargas ... possibly even the stock turbo+FBO+100% E85 guys) are going to need to address the inherent challenges of the slushbox.

Actually King that run was completed on the 3rd time this car has ever seen Sacramento Raceway. I can count the times I have been to Sacramento on one hand. That's not to say I don't want to go out again. The only holdback is that I want the cars Transmission running perfectly before I spend the time to run to Sacramento. The time will come, that's for sure.

I would rather measure twice and cut one time. If you get my drift.

are you single turbo AT guys having issues in 4th gear as well, or is it limited to 5th?

reason i ask is because im 1/4 mile guy and almost never exceed 4th, so im wondering when and if the tranny issue will start affecting me in 4th

It is very sporadic, most time 4-5 but sometimes 3-4. It's a tough deal lots of power, the motor is happy the tranny needs a little love. We will figure it out.

You should ask him if HE personally ran that time, or another driver did....

His car, different driver. His car holds the record, he said his car holds the record, he did not say he was driving when the record was set.

Ahhh, sneaky guy! He was talking like he did the dirty work. Maybe the reason he doesn't have any videos from the rolling event was because his driver was not available.

So its like owning a race horse, got it. The horse is *&cking fast, but only with the right jockey?

I'd rather race my own horse.
