Roushian I am min Silver Spring

arummel93 Roushian, where in MD are you from?

Austin_, here is Vaughns car at our show. We had a great turnout for it, and literally stopped traffic from people stopping in the middle of the street to watch lol

Roushian I run 660hp and 580tq on my 2012 Roush stage 3, and drive to work every day. If it snows, were driving my sons Camaro

TheOdessa I'd personally say around 500hp would make me happy. Currently I have a slow almost stock 2V and I feel it's far outdated to what's on the market today and considered the new "norm".

watson Ah, indeed.

Na306Fox Car does over 200mph...not at the track, but top speed wise.

It runs high 9's & low 10's

His track car runs 7's all day

69fastback [email protected] doesn't count as getting down the track....lol
November 11th, 2012 03:23 PM
Na306Fox yeah it does. It wasn't his track car though. That's his daily ride
November 11th, 2012 03:17 PM
69fastback Will that high horsepower, pile of GM rattletrap, ugliness get down the track though?

With that being said, I've daily driven 500whp to over 700whp. It all comes down to respecting the power and driving accordingly.

Here ya go!!




A couple pics & videos. Videos are of us tunning it while driving around

That's not a lack of torque, that's a lack of low-rpm torque combined with improper gearing for the application and a bit of traction issues due to weight transfer shifting weight off of the drive wheels. Dedicated drag car is going to launch the same way if you don't leave at a high enough rpm.

Na306Fox Well I'll be taking out my carpet, rear seats and replacing the front seats with race seats. Keeping a/c & heat for now.

Going to be scraping the glue an whatnot off the floor then coating it with truck bed liner an keeping it just as that. Along with the head liner. Hopefully I can get it under 3000lbs

Probably next year or so I'll be replacing the hatch with a fiber glass one and both doors with all lexan windows

I think around 370-400 at the wheels should be fun an maybe 150 wet shot on top just to tip it over a little

Colleen and I have some video from when I got him to come down to a local mustang club show. I'm on her phone right now, but when I get a chance I'll shoot you a link of mine.

A steam engine that could only make 1000 ft lbs at 1 rpm will get is ass kicked by even the most underpowered vehicles. All else constant.

But, having said all that, torque (and getting off the line fast) can make or break a race, no matter the engine size.

Thats why we drive mustangs (and because their bad a**).
