Power through the curve still applys in a race from a roll. The car made good PEAK power, but power under peak seamed to be done. Even a 440rw 302 from a 2011 beat the car by 30rw down low, which is crazy for a bigger motor

Variable Valve technology instead of pushrods will do that, chris.

my car doesnt make good hp till it gets way up into the rpm band so i dont think he was at any disadvantage. The car is just slow any way you look at it

And its best is 125 now? Thatd be a pretty close one till we get over 130ish... Did u see the video of me vs insomz? I think I made him mad and he gave up racing. He still thinks I sprayed him I pulled by him so bad.

Can't say I did... I was goin around him at top of third and kept pulling away. At 120ish it looks like he hit the brakes but unfortunately for him he didn't let out till top of his fourth which is 165.

I can't activate my system at will since its on a delay through the window switch.. He dynoes 21 more hp and 70ish more tq so I'm not sure what happened honestly.
