Tons of good stuff in the sticky's at the tops of the different sections around here. More F/I stuff here, the dyno thread and the feedback thread are both good too. It's nice seeing first hand results and feed back.

That's gotta be 0-60. Even a ZR1 can't do that time.

There's someone selling a Jackson racing charger on for sale items...... He says its very easy to install with his instructions and no tune need with his kit...... I want it but I don't got the money to make him an offer.......

The fastest cars at my 1/8th drag strip were running around 6 seconds...and they're NOT street cars. Not even close...
