actualy to the above post, Rule of THUMB states that for every 100 pounds you take out of your vehicle, you will cut a tenth off your total time

And we are sorry, we sometimes like to joke a little to hard

and best bet is to just post almost everything in this section, as long as its 5.0 related in someway it has almost no chance of being moved,

AND ALSO, TO WHOEVER SAID THE HCI COMBO sucked. read the damn description, i already know that. im sorry, retarted people **** me off.

If you shed 200lbs from your car (plus the light weight rims) plus alum. drive shaft plus batt, in back. You really think it won't feel faster?

thanks everyone for the non retarted posts. idk im in a bad mood. mainly the mod pissed me off changing the intent of my thread title...
how 'bout I slap you with sufficient infractions for the above content to put you on post approval???? then we'll see who the retard is..... apologize and I'll return the title to normal.......now that I have your attention read the posting rules please.........your lucky I'm not in a bad mod , or you'd be gone........consider yourself warned, thank you and have a nice day.

kweb stop kissing his ***

haha jkjk


im still lul'ing at 'retarted'

Im not sure about the 10th of a second thing, but it could be true?

And trying to transfer a few 10th's into a 'feelable' power range is difficult lol

Oh and for bonus material for those of you reading my post right now.

The reason i entered this was because of the modified title. haha.

And for those of you who searched and found this thread way down the road, wondering why your 331 with E7's doesnt make power, or those who wonder what a 200lb's drop in weight will gain you, the original title was once:

updates "the 5.0 section is for tech only, not hp gains expected"

Because we all know the title will be changed soon because someone will be receiving a thank you
