that car used to reside about an hour from me, (titan) glad it went to a home that would keep it racing, im sure that wont end its carrier.

Just call me "Lex"
I just watch the video. At 1 minute and 12 second of the video, the car almost hit a man. Very close.

Apparently they had issues with boost controler.. It was supposed to hold 30 Lb boost then 60Lb mid track..
It went straight to 60 Lb splitting intercooler...
Not that the crash wouldn't have damaged it anyway...

What's that guy doing standing there?...I saw him too Lex... Drag racing pro style is a bit nuts at times anyway then you have the idoits standing around in the pathway of destruction...... The guy in the video didn't even flinch as he was either frozen in panic or was in a standing in a canatonic coma to begin with...STRANGE..... Even flying debri's from the crash could have taken him out... Not smart...

nice vid, they said the turbo "split" the intercooler in 2? I guess their boost controller staged 60psi instead of 30psi off the line. Thats not a big mistake lol...
