I still remember going for a ride in your car when it had the prototype Heffner T-03 TT system on it! That is what made me decide to go turbos! you've come a long way from there!

Congratulations Sal! You made it look so easy even though everybody knows it's not!

Man I really don't have the guts to run the mile in this car.

Since 99% of Outlaw Drag Radial racing is 1/8 mile, a 4.70 puts me in the upper end of a 16 car field. With a few more hits, it should be in the solid 4.5x's which will put me in the lower end of the field.

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
Barry man you're making me tear up! WTH! Seriously I am truly humbled by your post. This post you have made describes my journey with this car to the tee. Thank you sir for making that heart filled post.

You're correct. For the record, it wasn't boring in the car!

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!!
Very true and for that reason I stopped counting pennies years ago!

I see you have jokes Chris!

Holy shit that is moving!

Congrats Sal, that is about all I can say. Most people will never hit 200, let alone in 1/4 mile!

Car looks perfect.

Would someone call Guinness World Records already for Gods sake. I feel like Jocelyn Wildenstein's face after watching that pass.

As I've stated before, I don't like to make claims to any records. However, this is a nice article that was forwarded to me on FB.
