    If all things are equal, who would win in a foot race; God or Beefcake?

    :beer:

    To answer your question, it cannot possibly be equal - was my point.

    It is 100% fact that a converter combo, regardless of transbrake, will apply less shock to the trans/driveline/entire car.

    Again, a MT slick outperforms a Cooper street tire - but the Cooper street tire is more harsh on the entire driveline.

    I apologize if you cannot see this, but it is true. As far as how I can relate to this, is simple. The amount of times I replace a customers LCA/UCA bushings when they run a slick....is almost never. With a harder compound, less effective tire (DR/Street-tire) I replace customers bushings every day of the year. That is because those tires are more harsh on the chassis/suspension/driveline.

    You are correct if we are talking G-Force, or "force" in general - absolutely. A car that get's to the sixty-foot mark the quickest, ALL else being equal - will see more force. Force does not equate to "harder" or "more harsh" on the specific parts we are talking about, though.

    Staying on the topics here..

    Trans brake related, I think Kelly and I (along with a few others) are trying to be technical and discuss factors to really determine what is in fact harder on the drive line. An Auto with a Brake, or Launching a Manual...dont care if any one thinks its stupid, but part of the reason you think its stupid, is the harshness of the launch on the brake.

    The race Where ever this goes down, we gotta get someone to do a really cool video! :rockon:

    Not sure what you meant by "There I go again" ? But I've never have known anyone that paid 8K for a turbo kit and didn't go ahead and buy a high stall convertor to go with it. Guess its possible though and if they didn't buy one you would probably be right. Haven't tested a trans brake with A stock convertor before. That would be a new one on me.

    Where turbos are allowed in the rules, yes they almost always are. And if not, it's because of rules. They just outlawed a turbo in true street because it was too fast, and they smacked the remaining legal turbos w a 50lb weight penalty.
    If nitro wouldn't melt the turbos it might be different lol

    Lets be honest here. You have built what, one, 2, maybe 3 kits for coyotes. Yesterday a car didn't exist, but now one does.

    It's again, a legitimate question to ask who it is, and where the car is from. I'm supposed to travel 1000 miles for a unicorn?

    If it's realistic that there is a car 2000 miles away that texas is the central point, then we can lock it in.

    It's very easy for you to say. Oh, I have a car now, meet here, but I'm not telling you anything about the car.

    Just stupid.

    We all know what the car would be a 2011-2014 5.0 Mustang with a CPR turbo kit on it.

    So, whos car is it, where are they from? Your just beating around the bush.

    Just like calling me out after I already called you out. It's just ignorant.

    3 kits? Interesting lol. Who says the car didn't exist yesterday? IT'S NOT MY CAR. I can't lock a race with someone else's car without asking them first. That's stupid. I lock it, guy says no, then you just keep talking shit.

    legititmate answer:In a grudge race I owe you nothing. It's a S197 racecar w a coyote. The meets any "rules" we might have in a race car grudge race.

    Again, a grudge race. If you're so confident a "CPR car will never touch your car as it sits" why do you care? Where did all the confidence go? Did I really scare it out of you that easily?


    I'm not beating around anything. You wanted a race and you got it. I asked racecar or streetcar. I got the reply "you wanted the bull,...." So I'm taking the bull by the horns and now the bull doesn't want to play. I'm Not calling you out. I'm standing here flat telling we'll race. Who called who out is retarded and a matter of semantics. Quit doing your dance and lock something in.


    You also didn't claim nobody could beat you. The only reason he wants to no is to find a reason to weasel out if he sees a whooping coming.


    Funny ain't it? I'm trying to race here and he's off running his mouth again calling my shit overpriced. Damn teenagers
