    I think 492 was done on actual dynojet though with race gas. The runs don't match the dyno numbers because of a blown turbo or some sh** like that and the fact that she can't drive for sh** LOL

    Even her husbands runs, and the runs on slicks are way off. at 500whp my car goes close to 100mph in the 1/8. Even on a sh** pass. An AWD is heavier than a FWD too.

    I doubt I'll ever want to go back to the 1/4 mile. I'm focusing all my time on making it a better auto-x car.

    Virtual dyno reads high if you make it read high. If you put in all the information correctly, it reads accurately. I've logged Dynojet runs, and the hp reads the same on the Dynojet graph and the Virtual Dyno graph.

    I've never ran the car at 500hp, my drag runs were at 380hp. Pair that with FWD, crap street tires and a newbie driver, 13's is about right.

    It doesnt suck that its not AWD. I have more fun in my GST than most people I know with a GSX.

    And I'm not re-tinting the tails.

    No, we took I-10 west the entire way. We're already in SoCal and start house hunting today.

    I will definitely be at the Shootout :) Justin might be on deployment, though

    Nah, I'm not very forgetful. Plus, the plastic retainer just allows the gas cap to lay on your paint and scratch it up.

    I never had to cut the hood or anything. Just had to bend the oil dipstick out of the way a little bit.

    Yo jaxness I took a page out of your book and re did my headliner and door panels (headliner was destroyed anyways) in plaid, but not pink LOL red and gray. Doing my visors and maybe the shift boot too. Looked great in your gsx and I didnt wanna just go with the same ole grey headliner since I had to replace it anyways.

    I never thought of it like that, wouldnt want any scratches in your perfect paint, I only wish I had that problem! Keep an eye on your CEL light tho it can throw a code if your seal leaks I still think the gas cap is an often overlooked maintenance item. Hey is it racing season yet? oh sweet house too
