Took my car to the track but only got one pass because the second pass I broke an axle on launch. This was at 15-16psi of Boost and just a quick little burnout to clean the tires off. After this run I turned the Boost up to ~20psi and did a better burnout. I was really hoping for a deep 13, so maybe next year I'll bring spare axles to the track... Overall I'm satisfied with the performance for this Boost level, but I really would have liked to have a clean pass at 20psi!

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

Finally got a ton of issues worked out and got back to the track. Best
Numbers for the night at 2.185 60foot to a firstname.lastname@example.org. Not all that
bad for only 20psi on a stock intake and cyl head. Also Proof that 7's
are better than 2's. On the Green cars behalf 3rd gear is almost
impossible to get into gear causing the what looked like slow car.
