I'm a fat guy at 255lbs and don't have nearly the extreme weight reduction that he does. Imagine if my car with driver was as light as his setup and I weighed as much as that little fart does. lol I'd be in the 11s already so for me to be running close with him with a worse 60ft and with extra weight on worse than stock suspension (Eibach Sportlines with stock shocks), I'd say I'm doing pretty good.
I was still the first in the 12s and did it on the stock manifold. That can't be taken away.
Sorry but bottles are for babies, real men get blown!
Excuses, I just lost 28lbs (all fat, gained muscle, which is lighter than fat) and it wasn't hard. Go to www.bodybuilding.com
. Follow the plan and diet, stick too it and the weight will come off. Its much cheaper than putting another $500 or more into your car to overcome your weight.
I ran 12.7 with nearly stock SRT-4, 30lbs heavier than I am now, but I took out the pass seat, spare and rear seat to compensate. 1.78 60ft time, M&H slicks (23x8.5x15) on PT Steelies.
Bottles aren't for babies they are for people that don't want to drop alot of coin to make power. I love nitrous, its fun, its easy and its cheap (relatively speaking). You can make a ton of power with nitrous, its just people chicken out way before getting there or break something, which gets more jeers than blowing up a turbo setup which happens more often IMHO but people actually get props for spending more money???
What a strange world we live in...
With the power you make you should be running 10's, not 12's, even at 300+ you should be running deep into the 11's. Hell I know a 2nd gen Escort that runs 11.2 at over 120mph with full stereo installed, makes over 370hp on a boosted (b trim T3/T4) SPI engine.
Don't make excuses GET IT DONE!
