they do, those early NGs had longer gears than many of the later cars.

He is running the 4.45 gearing that we like so much for racing. Going through the trap in 5th gear at 7200rpm...

Here is the dyno video from the Dyno Dynamics that reads around 30whp lower than the dynojet we usually use:

I asked the same question, would have been nice to see more in cabin footage. He paid Flicker to make the video and that is what they came up with. Its not bad, but I think with two go pros, we could have gotten better coverage, I am mainly interested in the cockpit footage.

The only thing we could not have gotten was the fly by view.

The external view is cool, but if it was between the external and the internal, go internal...

...and that fly-by view was awesome...


Was that a GT3071 or a 76?

Yes, same turbo Mike Saunders and Vigge and myself all had in the beginning, the good ol gt3071wg, internal wastegate. Brian is already talking of a big Gtx 35R and going for Vigge's record run

Here is article from autoblog, seemed to surprise a lot of people, keep it out of your nightmares they say

Not bad. But how would this thing match up next to a stock C900?

I heard they're faster than a 911.

The comments are pretty interesting, it seems a little publicity has gotten the gears turning in a few people's heads ie. the price is right on a mid 90's sleeper... very cool imo
