whistling“They make about the power I expected them to make,” says Bischoff. “I’ll be honest with you, the cars run faster than what the horsepower says they should. That kind of surprises me, and I’m not sure why that is. They are almost 3,600 pounds, and now going 7.90s, that says 1,400 horsepower, but I have no idea where that comes from, because this makes 1,250.”

It has been known for years and years that to go faster than everyone else in the same class you have to work harder, be smarter, have as good or better parts than every other fast car out there from the front bumper bolt to the rear bumper bolts up work
It ain't just the motor, tranny , chassis or the driver shruggy wrench hammer
It also really helps a lot to have large budget and a insane drive to win whistling devil
