    Would luv to meet some of them Yankee V8's along the way Not drag-racing, just real good 300kph+ road racing fun. As I said, not all Autos are driven by soccer mums.
    not all american v8's are pigs... i know my buddy in his supercharged s2000 can't outrun me in the twisties (if we were on our bikes it would be a different story...i wouldn't see him until the end... and he could probably stop for a rest along the way too )

    thats unfair, an american muscle car isn't built for the twisties. i think you'd have a harder time beating an american SPORTS CAR on the circuit. (All american cars aren't dogs. There is a reason why the c5-r is killing on the race circuit. That tech is trickling down to some of our cars i.e. 2006 c6 z06... amazing power and performance all stock)

    And about auto <-> manual

    Manual can shift as fast as auto ... all depends of the driver.
    exactly...and you have to be a damn good driver to beat an automatic in the 1/4 mile. in the curves... most automatics would loose its advantage though

    Drag racing is alot easier for everyone to get into. Road Coarse are just not accessable to everyone. Its easier to just compet on a strip of asphalt. Its also alot cheaper. I dont have to invest in to $3000 brakes and pads, $3000 in BBS wheels, etc. With drag racing, I add a blower, some sticky tires, a good clutch and go to town. Its not easy. There are guys with my combo in he 11's. I am 13.4 at 112.9mph. Its not as easy to drag racing and get optium times right off the bat.

    Yes, drag racing is EASIER to get into, for various reasons. The ones you stated, and the fact that less skill is needed. Notice in your statement that you say, You don't need to invest in brakes, well of course not, since braking is a SKILL you don't need in drag, but do in track. You fail to mention suspension, which is MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE then brakes and wheels, again, cause the skill of turning if not needed in drag.

    No one said it was EASY to go fast straight, just skills wise, it is easier then going fast at a track.

    For the most part, Drag is MOSTLY about the car, and track is mostly about the driver. Just different emphasis. Personally, I find track more important/skillfull. The skills translate into street driving, where drag doesn't. And, I would rather improve my skills, then sinking more money into the car to go faster. Ya, it takes money in your car to have a real track car, but a very good friend of mine (how I wish it was me with the skills) can spank many FASTER cars with his front wheel drive Maxima with just some minor suspension improvements, not because of the car, but because he's got some MAD skills.

    Good automatic ----> new VW GTI... Not really a traditional auto. Its a 6 speed DSG. One clutch for 1,3,5 and one for 2,4,6. Push the button clutch 1 goes off, clutch 2 goes on. Instant shift. its also .3 seconds faster 0-60 than its 6 speed manual sister.

    Mind you I love a manual trans. I have to double clutch... ****ty synchros. I find myself board driving an auto.


    Autos have great advantages in the 1320 for sure. My nieghbors 865whp vette is auto.... One big turbo too. Throttle plate never closes, turbo never looses any momentum. Its actually pretty scarry . Plus it can hold more power reliably... get a good stall TQ converter and win.

    Some of the fastest drag queen supras are autos.

    This despite that autos generally loose 5-10% more power to the wheels over stick. A bunch of matrix guys went to dyno thier cars. The auto 1zz made about 115 whp, the stick made about 128 ish. And for comparisons sake, a factory S/C auto 1zz made 140whp, a B16 00 SiR (canada) made 140whp (i/e), a chipped jetta 1.8t 5sp made 167whp and my 2zz 6sp made 170whp(i/e).
    Process meter!
    CarPC [#######-] 90% (In, some loose ends)
    Audio [#######--] 80% (Rear speakers to be installed)
    Total in car [#######_-] 85% (mostly everything)

    you don't have to upgrade anything in scca road racing, so it's cheaper... actually if you get $3,000 bbs wheels and you've never raced before...you'll probably end up going slower. (sidewall will save you a lot of the time because; for instance, a 60 series tire will 'talk' toyou more then a 30 series tire). if you add up total tracktime of each, i bet course time will come out on top as well.

    Drooling over the xr6 you got there
    I thought it was 13.6 or somethin stock??
    The only thing missing there is injectors and fuelpump oh exhaust if you havent touched that! Id say 440-460hp though
    Old mans got a APS stage 2 mods on his xr6t falc atm man you'll love it!

    Your comparing your rotor to a 4L inline 6 with a stock turbo big enough to make around 450hp on 13psi!

    I see your point (didn't know it was a 6..thought it was a 4 for some reason) regardless... i can't see an additional 200hp (rwhp?) without any fuel upgrades something doesn't seem kosher... i don't know a lot about that engine/turbo package so i could be wrong. That would be a very impressive jump, i don't even think supra's can do that.

    Umm thats all for the non turbo models
    Were talkin bout the XR6T T is for turbo lol
    www.airpowersystems.com.au
    Yeah well its got an extra litre on the supra! Also it makes about 320hp stock
    Agreed he needs fuel, you cant even add an exhaust without injectors in some cases because the slight boost increase f%cks up the fueling!
    Imagine that! Go to get an exhaust and wind up with new injectors and a chip lol

    it's an impressive car/engine but i still haven't seen proof.

    is this what i'm supposed to be looking at:
    http://www.airpowersystems.com.au/falcon/phase_iii.htm

    now to figure out how many "kw" are in a "hp"

    edit: 385kw = 516.0857908847184.... i stand corrected :-) well sort of...he still needs the fuel upgrades, but a very impressive engine to say the least
