bigdog7373 ,

It really is a hoot to drive. I've been into hot rods for over 40 years and had I started with something as light as the Track-T there would have been a lot less hot rods in my history. My '55 Ford from 25 years ago was running a Ford side oiler 427 BB and was blown at 8.5 PSI. 600+ hp and even with borrowed slicks ran a 10.8 also, same as the 386 hp 355 in the T. Weight makes a huge difference, that '55 on DOT tires was a slug off the line, just a lot of tire smoke. The Track-T hooks and books.

No doubt weight makes a huge difference. It's got to handle like nobody's business too i'd bet. It's like an overpowered go-cart

Your not the first to refer to it as a go-cart. The engine and transmission are so low in the frame rails the the CG is at or below spindle height. No moment-arm above spindle height, no lean. The same G-Tech I use for cornering. A 2007 Mustang managed 0.84 G, my Corvette 0.93 G, and the Track-T I'm not sure what it will do, has done 1.02 G but at that speed in the curve, just won't go faster because if I lose it, might not be able to keep it on the road. Here is the ground clearance,







Before the skid plate with the 383 that even though a stroked engine I could still use a shallow oil pan. The 427's stroke is too long to use that pan, so my ground clearance dropped from 3 1/2" to 2 1/2", too low for no skid plate.

I have the Super Sport, and I forgot the name of the first one I bought in 2000. I bought it because I was making some mods to my new F350 4X4 diesel crew cab dually, and my seat of the pants could not feel a 10 hp increase in an 8000 lb truck, but the G-Tech could. I use the newer one for engine tweaks and cornering.

The price is attractive due to the Wii game and the new smart phones all use precision accelerometer, driving the price down on what used to be a expensive component. I paid more back in 2000 for my 1st one that only used one acceleratometer, the current ones use 3.
