    There's only meant to be 2 pics there. For some reason a lot of hosts stuff up the IMG tags and it comes up as missing pics.

    Now for a minute forget about ET....MPH is MPH it does not lie, you either make the claimed HP or you don't and the MPH indicates that, next people will say he has X experience and seat time, go watch the guy race (It's very frustrating at times) so the seat time and experience etc no that is taken out of the equation.
    I seen the videos on youtube...131/132mph for a stock cam LSA picking up 30+mph from mid track?

    Going off the calculator the Senator is punching out 801hp...on a stock cam. Is that the one that detonated?

    As per the video the HSV Senator owned by Nick (member of this forum) was consistently a 10.75 car which on a very good cold night went a PB of 10.68

    Nick then changed tuners to a US tuner who remote tuned his car, they leaned off the air fuel ratio to squeeze that little bit extra out of it making it run a 10.68-10.72 pretty consistently (obviously at the sacrifice of engine longevity).

    Then Nick was asked to run 50/50 water meth at which point the US tuner blew up his engine.

    Moral of the story the car was very safe and consistent when it was running 10.75 and should have been left alone, whilst leaning off the fuel netted more HP it was the beginning of the end for his engine.

    The exact same combo was run on Nick HSV GTS which had over 120 quarter mile passes running consistently 10.75 and the Senator also had over 100 passes on it too consistently at 10.75 with the same combo until obviously the US tuner fiddled with it.
