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 or www.bodyrock.tv. 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!
