    I would agree with this. I think I would be at about 6k and then would have to shift right away. It was <60 degrees though and I was worried about traction in 1st. The ****er had me either way, fair is fair.

    With practice, you'll learn what the car likes and where you need to be based on speed.

    Sometimes you need to be a bit stubborn and dictate the gear/speed. If they really want to race, they'll bite.

    With a tire on it itll hold a 40 in 1st on concrete, or just put a bottle in it and dont worry about it

    1st runs in this vid is my car vs a 600+ evo, first run on motor he put 2 cars on me, on the bottle i had him by 5+

    Agreed! I got freakin steamrolled by a Regal Type T (aka basically a Grand National) in my cobra back in the day. Thing moved.

    Depends how big the turbo is on 4G63’s. A 700-800 whp one (not uncommon) would have ass raped you to 150 mph. There are quite a few 1000 plus whp ones awd running around. lol...

    Top of 3rd will take you well into the 120s, top of fourth will be well into the 150s.

    I've had a lot of cars in my life, and the one I truly miss was my C6Z. The sound at 7k rpm was intoxicating, you should try it sometime:D
