    Wow. That is insane. He'd be drinking a beer in pit lane by the time the driver of an average car was just finishing.

    The other dude did a hot 10.1 and must have felt slow !

    Do they use the manual gear change when they drag or just put her in auto, set the rocket and press go ?

    Using large drag race only wrinkle slicks, a low tech big block can achieve these times.

    What makes the GTR remarkable is it can do a 7 sec 1/4 on street legal rubber in a full weight no compromise road car (with exception of using DOT drag radials in the wet, but who would drive a 200K car in the rain?).

    I asked this question over on nagtroc, when does it end with this platform? how much faster can this car go in some what street trim? this very pass had the driver been able to keep her in the grooves would have been a 7.7x!! Omega went another 4mph (186) and that was almost a year ago, does that mean today in a clean pass she could trap north of 190 and run even faster than ets?? What will another year of advancements do?? Will a 6sec pass happen??

    ER is looking for 7.5. Not sure we'll see 6s in a street trim car. It'll prob have to be a gutted car. Idk. We'll see.

    Well i think its safe to say that if someone wanted to build a drag dedicated gtr with a power glide, lexion windows, and gutted you could probably do it now. Personally I'm not into drag dedicated cars, its these somewhat street able builds that impress me.

    That is impressive, it's cool to see a shop like English and AMS that still go to the track and go for broke even when they already hold the record. Many performance shops go, set a good time and settle on that and don't go to events but both of these companies are VERY active.
