Not a Geo but okay. Seems to me they were already going pretty fast to need to shift into 4th. I don't think it spun either. I think the clutch was slipping.

It was actually third i missed and the clutch is not slipping. The thing does not want to hook untill maybe top of third or sometimes 4th. Im running 205/50/15 neo gens and a very conservatve tune

Ya well the whole honda thing doesnt always matter. I know of some 300whp hondas that are freaking nasty. And others that i could beat at the moment with 225whp. So the number isnt what matters all it is is a tuning tool the track time is what really matters to show true horsepower. Dynos very so much on numbers it dont matter to me anymore. I watched a friend dyno his car at my same dyno and then trailer it straight to another dyno and go from 450whp to 620whp without changing anything and on the same tank of gas so.......................................................... but anyways ill try to see if i can fix the leaks and stuff on the car next week since it was just about enough to tune so now its time to get a speedo cable to work and fix my tach and try to make it hook. I will beat that vette or atleast make it like our first 2 unvideo runs where he had me by about a car because i hooked. No matter what things should be getting interesting
