    Default Tremols Racing RWD eclipse New personal best

    Jose is a good friend of mine in PR. After about 2 years of trying to sort out the bugs in this beautiful car, they finally got it down the track at low boost. Read all about it here on my website

    http://magnusmotorsports.com/racing/...-best-7-63173/

    Also this car is running our new secret weapon part. It very much helped sort out their reliability issues.

    The car is tuned By Siguel (formerly worlds fastsest 3 Rotor) and they're being rether conservative to sort it out. It's a pretty heavy car for a RWD but they're already on track to make it to the low 7's. It's gonna be a piece of cake.

    I like how the tracks down there show the ET as it increases. That car is beautiful and I like how it uses a stock appearing hood. Very nice Marco, cant wait to see it go its full potential.

    Can you give us an idea of what "fairly heavy" is? Do you know what sort of 60's they're pulling?

    I didn't have that much to do with it that you should be thanking me. I liked this car from the moment I saw it 2 years ago. Here's an incar video with Siguel driving

    My friend JC fiberglass built the body, he is probably the best glass guy in PR.

    Fairly heavy for a newer 3/4 car, I thought it was 2100 but I am unsure. Nobody weighs anything in PR, its just gotta have an NHRA sticker and you're good to go. Definitely heavy by Puerto Rican standards. They'll be back out on wednesday night.

    It's got a fiberglass body and weighs 2100 pounds?! My car has it's rear and 3/4 glass, is all steel (even has it's door bars) and doesn't even weigh 2200 pounds without me in it, so yeah, that is a chunky car. He should have a few more bars than I do, but the fiberglass and more Lexan should make up for that.

    It's putting a serious hurting on those tires - the launch is pretty violent and looks to be shaking the tires a bit. Can't argue with those times though.

    Scott, I'm talking race weight. The rear quarters and roof are steel, It definitely lighter than Brent's for a few reasons. Doesn't have the goofy steel floor, Brent's car had to have to meet NHRA, and has a JC front end, Brent's front end is a beast. Brent has 30 lbs more in just the clutch, this thing has a lightweight twin disc quartermaster style clutch.

    Marco, I was agreeing with you that it was heavy for a RWD.

    My race weight is 2350, and I could drop a few hundred pounds off my car if I tried. I am assuming they've done more than I have to reduce weight - that's what I was comparing their weight to.

    You never know the true weight with the Puerto Ricans, cause they'll never tell you!
