Get on the dyno, put it on kill mode with nitrous, put up a 2348HP number, and it starts arguments everywhere. At this level, a chassis dyno is NOT the best option for finding peak power, If you have a 1600+hp capable setup, it belongs on the engine dyno if you really want bragging rights.

We hope to learn power management at the track this summer and be able to utilize a little more of the power we have on tap, and let the time slip advertise our usable horsepower.

Pretty well sums up dyno racing. It's a good tool when used properly, when things go amiss move on and forget it. Congratulations again Lavon

As far as dyno racing goes, look at who does it and then look at what they do or didn't do at the track? Enough said!!!

Lets not forget the on street fails. Between crashing and drinking _while_ driving, its rather sad.

These brakes have performed beyond our expectations after the first weekend of racing, we are very impressed and would recommend them to anyone.

We had to turn down the outside of the front hubs to fit the hat, a lot of work, but in the end worth all the efforts.

What size rotor is that? height wise. 13-14"?

So question on the old triples sizing, i just listened to your new podcast and i was confused when you said your manifold was a 475 with 2 477 as atmospherics. Arent the atmospherics supposed to be the smaller chargers?

Typical triple setups on street driven trucks have smaller atmo chargers, but it all depends on desired power output. These guys are running big chargers for more

I realize they are going for more than a street driven truck but i would think the principle would be the same.

There is no textbook or commandments on how to build a triple setup. The principle is still the same as running a pair in a compound arrangement. You simply need more air going into the manifold charger so compounding of the air takes effect.

Wouldn't the only theoretical limitation be the heat density available to drive the turbines? On a competition engine with enough gating and proper drive ratios it shouldn't be an issue

This is the only thing that worries me on some of the UCC builds. If they do have enough energy and "need" for triple HX80/2/3 turbochargers then how many blocks will actually survive the weekend?

Did you make a solid mount for the transmission too? Or run a stock one or poly mount?
