Yep, I've been a very outspoken critic of the typical N54 mentality of "max top end HP=fast 1/4" when people have no suspension or traction mods. However I do think a solid torque curve plays a pretty big role in maximizing your 1/4 times too.@Panzerfaust
1/4mi ET is primarily a function of traction/launch/60' and has less to do with whp than we generally think. An almost full-weight <600whp stick shift Evo can do 9.7 ETs with the right setup, yet you have several 800whp cars still in the 11s... A better performance metric is 100-200/60-130 times , as that removes traction from the equation and shifts focus solely on power/weight.
While its never completely fair to compare different cars/setups, and correct me if I'm wrong, but the HP800s appear to be slightly outspooling the 1ks based on the data I've seen so far?
Thank you for your business, I'm looking forward to hearing you and Barry's feedback on these puppies
I know some people claim (or users have had issue) with hitting 15psi that quick, but I recently posted one of my personal logs on my 6AT car where I was at 16psi in third gear at 289x. I do have PSP outlets "modified" to work for my 1Ks though so I might have slightly different flow than most with 1Ks
