You might remember Adrian Abela's Dyno monster from Summernats 23 (I'll add a link). With the help on Dyno-Mite Performance the F6 Typhoon replica punched out a whopping 869hp at the REAR WHEELS.

Check out the camera fogging just before the first launch - heat coming from the rear of the car as it builds Boost on the line is simply phenominal.
