    Curious to see how many are out there.
    I've seen all the "big lists" of peoples time slips on facebook but very few on those have touched 170+. Figured there are some people on here that aren't on facebook.
    I've been 170.8mph with my gen 3.
    Also hit 138 in the 1/8th.

    How close are you?

    LOL. That is going to be a small crowd bro.

    "How close are you?"

    Not close is what most everyone here is going to say.

    Really? Honestly I figured there was a good amount, especially from the 15-17 crowd with how long they've been out.
    Just trying to get an idea of other people's mph that are close if not more

    180 is what? Like a mid 7? Not many in that group. I think Lund ran like [email protected] while managing a 1.18 60's in their blue shop car with lots of weight reduction.

    Thats a number that mostly dedicated shop cars will be reaching for.

    Just depends on how their 330' is. That's where all your ET is from.

    Yeah Lunds car is pretty insane. Dry carbon everywhere! Wonder what the weight is without ballast in it to make weight classes.
    I really need their 60' haha

    Agreed. It's not a brand new car you can just go out and make pulls the entire 3000 miles oil change lol
    I'm constantly monitoring my AFR's, temps and boost when going down the track and listening/feeling for anything out of the ordinary

    Going through the traps at close to 150 was a HUGE HOLY SHIT! moment in my life... I cant imagine what 170+ feels like.

    Mine will always be a street car first so i will never know but much respect to you for how far you have gone in that car in such a short time.

    Amazing, really.
