Sorry Tom, all you have to do is stop going to weddings every week and stop posting pictures with MJ.

Well right now, with a TB and inlet issue, the car put down 710rwhp (at 5400rpm)/780rwtq. I have a 107mm TB and larger inlet on order so once they are installed and a final tune is done, I hope to be in the 775rwhp range.

Right now we are pulling 8" of vacuum right at the TB so its a major restriction.

Incredible, must be hard to keep traction under 100MPH. Let us know what kind of results you get.

I have only had it back for about 10 days now so I am just putting miles on the car and breaking it in. Heck, I haven't even had it on the interstate yet and might have hit 65 once, haha.

I just want to make sure everything is perfect before really getting out it.

10 days, I don't blame you, take your time to break it in right or it will be back with Ed again. With the power you have, are you using DR's for street tires?

I went with the Michelin PS2, 345's on the rear and have to warm the tires when temps are below 70 to get any traction. Next year I need to get something for track and fun, I am thinking MT right now.

If you ever want to borrow my drag pack for the track just ask. I don't have a problem loaning them out to friends.

I appreciate the offer, I am afraid they are to sticky for my drive train, I am afraid something expensive will break.

I am hoping I can wait until next year to upgrade my A6 and diff to handle the extra HP. I have a used set of MT Street DR in my garage, I will try them next time on the track.

Are you going to the track next year?

Yeah, I will track the car at some point. Since the car has been down for months I am enjoying driving it right now. I don't want to take it to the track anytime soon and break something. The last thing I want is for the car to be in the shop again.

I don't blame you, enjoy it for the winter then get down to business next spring.

Steve is putting a track rental together Nov 13th at Richmond Dragway. I am having a knock issue but hope to install a meth kit this week to take care of it. A couple of other issues I need to take care of but haven't had time to fix yet. If the meth takes care of the knock I might hit the track next month to see how it does.

I actually thought about going and just babying it down the track just to have some fun. But knowing me, I wont be happy doing that and I will try to post a good time. That will lead to me breaking something I'm sure. I may just go as a spectator to support everyone and take some pictures.

I told Steve about my concern of breaking something at the track and he told me I could take it easy on takeoff. I don't think I can hold back, but I might. I really would like to go and take it down the track a few times.
