Default Father and Son, King of the 3.7 n/a Hill!

My dad and I made it back to VMP last night for the Street Wars and TnT event. We also invited another 3.7 guy from MD who claimed to be the n/a king with a 12.77 time, auto car, with less mods then me or dad.

Well, most of the guys on other forums were skeptical of the claims, and the videos he had posted. After last night, well, ya'll will see the runs. He claims he was spinning soooo bad, that's why he was running 13.20's all night. The vid shows otherwise.

Also, his car weighed 3500#, dads was 3525#, and mine was 3555#, with drivers, fwiw.

We did not get dad's first/best pass on video because my brother had not shown up yet, and I was in the lanes with dad. But the new n/a record for our cars is now a 12.63 @ 108.86mph. I'm #2 now with a 12.71 @ 109.5mph. I'm skeptical of my trap, as most of the night I was 106-107mph, but taking what the slip says!

Here's a quick vid I threw together last night. 4am after the 2hr drive, so cut me some slack. No music either because I can't figure out how to add songs while keeping the vid viewable from mobile devices.

Nice video (track videos do not need music).

Agreed! They have several hits the last two-three years (Focus, Mustang both 3.7, and 5.0), new Escape, C-Max.

Good job OP. My dad would kill to have a 3.7 to play with with mine.
