First start off with my motor is all stock as well as the ATX. The ZX4 runs 17.5 all day at around 70-75 mph.
Now add a 50 shot off nitrous with a traction control switch and drag radials and I drop 3 full seconds, and still on the stock tune. I am still dialing everything in and currently running mid 14's ?!?
I also paid less than $8K for the car as opposed to the svt, the supposed "bad ass" version of our car.
By the time FocusFest gets here I will be running the 100 shot with a custom dyno tune. Do the math on that one.

My biggest problem at this point is wheel spin but I recently purchased those drag radials so things will be getting faster soon.
So to spend $600 on a NOS and beat svt's with more power and less weight; as well as mustangs down the track, I think is money well vested.

Besides, we'll see who is slow come FocusFest.
