The guys that arent running boost, are turning up timing on the motor instead. Hardly any guys are running blinky with 0 timing on the motor. But I agree. I dont think it helps that much. Maybe on a tenth or 2 on the straight. Me, Angelo and Jason will also be going to the Barn for opening day! Brrraaaaaaap!

What I can't stand is when someone who's boosted to the hilt drives right through people on the straight cause their car has an 8.5 equivalent!

i think the no boost rule should be in 13.5. I think it would make everybody better...

but right now I'm trying to find a spot in mod lol. With this 13.5 back in and good tires car is way better and my times are much better. I may just grab a 10.5 soon but right now 13.5 is perfect for me...

goode it is 75 30 but I may try 72,28...full can timing...runs around 120...

you have to stay close to the pipe but not to close..to far left is just really hard.

You can check the slipper and make sure you are putting down power right..Ik u run your epa around 80.. Throw it to 100 and just get used to it...


layout is changing soon anyway tho Im not sure...maybe next week?

We both have been saying this for a long time. George and I still run speedos that don't even have boost in them.
Maybe one day people will see you don't need to boost the crap out of it to do well. But what do I know. Lol
I've done ok with never running boost. Hey I've even ran 17.5 for a few weeks.
