I've been telling some of you guys that I wanted to do almost all kinds of racing with the HPF car. Alot of people are still on the fence about how the car runs at the track and what it would be best suited for. I know it's not the end all be all but I think I pretty much threw everything you could throw at the car and it still goes like stink. Here are some pics and my old Vid in case anyone missed it.

Auto x: Came in second.

Drag racing and bald tires and slippery track.

My track day at Mosport

I thought we would see some higher trap speeds, I remember seeing a 131 by Evil Twin Rob...What Octane were you running and do you have stage I or II? Your car looks so good btw. :thumbsup:

I'm running 19" with old tires. I had to short shift and modulate the throttle to get any grip at this track. I believe Rob had a 134MPH. Thats why I'm a little embarrassed about my times.

Probably the conditions, the HPF shop car hit 129, another one 127MPH.

Fabio, good stuff Bro, 12.2 and 124 traps are still awesome, props from me for hitting the track, most don't. :thumbsup:

Dont worry about it bro, everyone thinks there car is going to run 11's stock untill they hit the drag strip for the first time. Your trap speed looks good. Will improve when you run harder next time. Good luck!!

that autox looked painfully tight, but you look like a decent driver

Sick.

It's funny, but I can't seem to shake the image of Pixar's "Cars" out of my head while looking at your car. It just seems to be giving a goofy smile from the front. That intercooler looks like some huge smile! Ya might want to add some black mesh in front of that if you want the aggressive look... :rofl:. Other than that, the car looks fantastic and sounds good.

Do all HPF cars backfire that much?
