check his fuel brand and his % of nitromethane. i think tuned pipe has a little something to do with speed also. check his brand and setup compared to yours.

Default top speed

How did you determine your top speed? I doubt any small block powered sedan can go much above 70 if at all(not scientific just a guess) I have seen the fastest sedan racers in the world at my home track and were radar gunned at the end of the straight at 58/60. this is a 280 foot straight. I know top speed attempts would be made with taller gearing but the drag increases at higher velocities go up astronomically. the current issue of rc nitro has an article with a schumacher fusion heavily modified with a sirio 21 and a 3 speed and that car with almost 3 hp topped out at 84.9. find a way to drop one of those new collari wc 21.s in your mtx-3 and you will go 80+.I suppose if someone found a way to completley gut a sedan and take a pound or so out of it, it might be possible, but i doubt the car could hold together. just my opinion.
