I had my hand on the chute handle by the 1/8 mile and accidently turned on both Map lights after pulling the chute. I forgot the Map lights still worked.
I can only imagine! I can't stop thinking about wanting to have turbos and an auto in mine............DAMN!!

The map light is win right there, i can't believe how stock your interior is.

Several people have thought they could pull that speed off through the years with their Viper project without a clue what it really takes to hook that power and keep it straight the whole 1/4.

But you Sal did it the most satisfying way - you did it yourself along with a team you developed along the way. You made incremental improvements step by step. You did not rush it.

Long ago you knew your car could run the number, but your refused to get impatient and go balls out and risk it all. You risked other people beating you to the 200mph marker post by doing it right, learning the car, learning the journey, learning yourself and stepping it up bit by bit.

Sal you are a true professional, you have schooled all those in your wake by your patient persistence and now the final goal of 6's is one good run away.

Nobody deserves it more.

Congratulations buddy

well said Torquemonster, I have been a fan of this car / team for years and I'm very happy to see you accomplish all this success, IMO the most impressive thing on 4 wheels I have seen in a long time, to think of cars that weight this much, as complete as yours going 200mph alone is very impressive, to be able to do it in 1/4 mile is simply absurd! Congratulations

I am pretty sure that you want to keep things boring like that. Slipping and sliding down the track would definitely make it more exciting, but a hell of alot more dangerous. I would rather do what you did and kick out 10 runs at 200+ MPH and be bored with it.

I have gone from 14's when I first started drag racing as a teen to 12's and 10's and eventually 8's in the 1/4mile. I built each car to achieve the goals. Its amazing how much money it takes to go from one level to the next. After I sold the 8 sec car, I decide it wasn't worth the waste of money it would be to try to get into the 7's or even 6's. Decided to buy a Viper and shoot for low 10's. Its cheap to do so. No need for a spool, auto trans, gutted car etc. Kudos to you Sal! I can truly appreciate all the time money and headaches it takes to build such a car. Congrats! Be safe out there!!

I imagine going down the track is something like this



It clearly would be faster if you put silver stripes on it. Be safe Sal, I almost think you should retire the car for like $1 Million cash and walk or give it to a charity like the BAD68GTO fund.....

Awesome run Sal, almost as nice as the pass itself, is to see a full run that doesn't involve any "braking4tuning".
