There was a 8 second pass at that event by another car, I think a starlet but I didn't get it on video. It was MOVIN' though!! That Yugo is from FLA I believe along with some of the othercars you barely get a glimpse of in some of the video. The black one barely noticeable just before the yugo, caught on fire during a nitrous purge but it quickly went out. I have that on video but waiting to use it on the next vid.... :cool:

I have no idea what comes in a stock yugo :). This perticular Yugo was a fully gutted race car that had a fully prepped 3 rotor bridge-port hence the "bah bah bah bah" and extreme RPMs!


Thanks 87camaroPA! I try and keep it clean as much as possible heh. Those pics show my newly finsihed Acura TL HID retro! ;)

What did you guys think of the dyno peg at the end? :eek:

Yeah Im not a Ford guy but I cant say that I dont like Mustangs, wouldnt buy one cause there are still Camaros out there, but I do like em. And you HAVE to give credit where credit is due! Did he smoke the tires on the dyno, or was that exhaust or somethin else? I love when cars smoke the tires on a dyno, it takes a lot to pull that off!!!!!!!!

Yes its turbocharged. If you look at the front bumper, you will see a big hole cut for the turbo intake side. That loud squell is the huge single turbo spooling ungodly amounts of RPM's lol. I didn't see any smoke but I saw the exhaust flaming underneath after he let off. That car is as much as a 'mustang' right now as my SRT is a Durango lol. There was a Supra that came in the same day as my dyno session. He was running a 700-800whp MK3 w/ single turbo and nitrous (not sure what shot). Anyways, they were tuning and I had just put my camcorder i the car. I came back in to the dyno to watch the Supra go thru its paces. I was standing right by the back passenger wheel as he was doing the pull. Once he nailed it the boost started building and the tires began to smoke and slide on the dyno drum lol. Times like that I kick myself in the ass for putting up my camcorder just in the wrong time!! Argg!
