Thats the same vette I raced in the spooled production vid. Rob is the owner of the Vette and my very good friend and tuner of my car is the owner of the Talon Jake Montgomery. Both are very quick cars!

BTW..Talons times is a 10.66 @138 and the Vette is a 11.5 @ 126 I do believe. BTW, the Vette is a C5 and you can see it getting torn down by a Celica in the vid I posted back in the day.

Doesn't look like the vette even tries.

Either way, I think what this really proves to me is that Boost is God. It isn't even all about the HP numbers.. Ohh yea my v8 puts down 400hp! don't need no stinkin turbo bullshit!

Roll up in a boosted 4cyl putting down 250hp and you leave the V8 behind.. it always seems this way.. correct me if I am wrong.. but the more boost you have.. the more god you are.

Ermm...no way 250hp is leaving 400hp behind unless the car with 250hp has a ridiculous gearing and/or weight advantage. HP is HP, whether it's boosted or NA. I could just as easily, right this minute, find a video of a NA V8 eating turbo cars up.

TNO

Hmm.. it just seems that way to me.. I don't know.. I always thought of it like that because with the turbo motor.. the power is put down faster and consistantly through out the gear.. with the right setup anyway.

But bleh.. can't beat the sound of massive amounts of boost.. lol

i always thoguht of it as the opposite due to turbo lag...o well either way, i LOVE boost!

The only turbo I've ever driven was my ex-gf's '97 Eclipse GS-T 'vert, with an auto tranny.

My car was far more fun to drive. Not necessarily faster, but far more fun.

I want to drive a REAL turbo :(

You need about 550-600whp from a DSM to run mid 10's. That Talon obviously has more than enough power to walk a lot of cars.
