Thought some may appreciate this.

7.43 @ 150 due to not having third gear.

60 ft. 1.11
1/8 mph 161
1000' et 6.0302 @ 161.72

We also hold the mph record of 187

Should be knocking on some low 7's pretty soon.

Very cool. Low 7s for an Ls1 is amazing. It took 8 years to get into the high 7s, and not even three months later, mid 7s are here. Thanks for the info.

Wow.. I just did a news story a few month ago when Hardcore motorsports was the first to get in the 7's..

Hit 6's and I will do a news story on you too :)

Thanks guys. Not a problem keep you all posted.:)

Original parts wise it's really just the iron 6.0 liter block. Other than that it's mostly custom.

I'm not sure Bill, the car was built for testing the limits of the engine platform. If it goes anywhere it will be to show off since it doesn't really fit in any classes...
