Sorry about my "Spanglish" drmatera, thanks for the translation I tend to think that everyone knows what we are doing so I should explain things a little better and of course in English!

Regarding Mr. Norwood I'm very familiar with his work, records, and accomplishments, a while back there was a guy around here which I think his name was Andy, that Bob did a 930 TT for him, I also know about the project he was doing with Chris Rado, a Front wheel drive Scion, and I'm also familiar with Jarvis.

Going back to the "Fuel Subject", the car has made the following:

On Ignite Fuel which is E98= 1,000RWHP

On Sunoco Fuel which is 116=1,157RWHP

On E85 Fuel from the turnpike station =1,155 RWHP

So far the best number has been 1200RWHP but there was always some questioning about the legibility of it even though it was caught on video, there are already plans for some "UP Grades" after the Texas Mile with aims to get into the 1300 RWHP territory.

Just in case you wonder whats all the fuss about this numbers, the purpose is to break the 9.16 sec record in the 1/4 mile nothing else
10.76@139-1/4 mile
0-1 mile 193MPH
