If my memory serves me correctly, I would say 1998 to early 2000.

He was not allowed to run after the rear bumper scratched the surface, the track officials felt that the car was way to fast after a 10.03 pass at 155+ He will have to modify the cage and try again.

I knew it was a new photo since my sticker in front of his rear wheel has only been there a few months. Juan, mind if I toss that on my website. Have you got a better resolution version of it?

Love that picture. But what I love even more is the idea of all those small block Chevy dudes and dudettes watching with dropped jaws as their freaking minds were completely blown by a Porsche flat six behaving like a scalded cat on a quarter mile track.

So on Sunday, you go to the track and you scrape the rear bumper which bends the tail pipes on the way, you then get banned from the track because they think you are going to run way to fast, what would you do????

Is not what would we do! is what Bello does! You drive back home and on Monday you fabricate a brand new intercooler and on Wednesday you go to the dyno and you lay down some more astonishing numbers, people that do this things are not normal!!




34PSI with Ignite Fuel E98, in case you have trouble reading the numbers LOL that is 1203.74RWHP AND 920 Pnds of TORQUE
