20 yrs of 9.90 racing where N/A was used with a glide/brake.Those launches are as hard or harder than nitrous.Pretty much all strokers.Good friend of ours lost his good engine early in the season.Forced him to race a cast crank engine.He held his breath on each launch for the whole season.That thing was a grenade with the pin pulled.Torn it down at the end of the yr and junked it.It was trash.

Point being is we shouldn't advise guys of our high risk adventures many of which have only enough money for the one engine they are asking about.Thing with that high risk is then it is much better to be "lucky" than good.The idea of what? At first stated 800hp and then 1300 hp on a stock block/cast crank is just not logical.
