    Many of you know the car. Anthony took the car to the track last night and myself and the tuner (Ken Bjonnes) provided full track support in an effort to try and break into the 8.1XX range.

    The ET goal was not met, but he did run a string of 8.20s! With the best / last two passes being back-to-back 8.28 then 8.26!

    This 3850lb car GETS DOWN!

    That's some real good times, congrats. What was the 60foot time? Well IE 11 doesn't show a video or at least on my laptop it doesn't. Chrome works good.

    It is the 6R80 that has been upgraded with the Exedy Clutch Kit and a billet intermediate shaft. Pretty basic build.

    I know the tuner is on point. What brand suspension is in the car? LOL! Sorry had to do it. That is some pretty bad ass stuff. Realistic expectations to see 7.90s?

    What the HECK? Private video? Ken B is the bee's knees for tuning. He used to be a local tuner in my area. Tuned three of my vehicles at one point or another.

    Thx, pet peeve of mine when things get post with words like "stock trans", "stock block" etc.... when there are mods that have been made.

    Like when the LS nutswingers say "cam only" when the car has intake, exhaust, ported heads... etc etc

    I race with an LS guy who always tells people it's a "junk-yard LS", and the damn thing's been stroked to 406ci or something. He used to have a different turbo'd LS in an old truck, and he referred to it a "budget build", and I know he had at least 2000$ into his fuel system alone, hahaha. LS people are something else, that's for sure!

    Well, it does say factory 6R80.
    Technically, the factory did install that trans :smiley-face-popcorn
