I'm around 6.5:1 I think. But using that on Shannonville or the DDT is next to impossible.

My car would be 7.06 lbs/hp
Damn'd shame I'm too cheap to prep it for Solo.
we talking wheel horsepower or crank horsepower? At the crank my car is making about 240hp, so the p:w ratio is about 8.3. If we're talking wheel horsepower, p:w ratio goes up to about 9.5.
Torque to weight ratio is considerably higher, but I'll never be below 7,000rpm so I'm not all that worried about torque.
I just took another 50 lbs. out of the car by removing the bumper supports. Those things are pretty heavy! Figured as may strip the car down as much as possible for the OTC. I'll bring it back up to C/SP spec when I get home. I've got 3 'Body & Trim' points to blow anyway, so I guess I could leave the bumper supports off if I wanted. We'll see. I may go with a fiberglass hood and some lexan windows instead. Bumper supports are fairly low on the car and they may add some structural rigidity, so I'd rather remove weight heigher up on the car like the hood and windows.
Peace out big daddy,
hmmm no torque ehh....thats wretched hondas for you :)
hmmm it seems your car will be very fast..with that amount of power to weight....i really don't want to have to turn up the boost..guess we will see after the first couple of races...
dave good luck in cali..beat them yanks up..slap em with some canadian bacon :)

I'm really trying to hold my tongue here...it's not easy...
It's true Tom, I haven't sat on Adam manly lap for a few years now.
Sadly, I'm close to 220 lbs., though most people wouldn't guess I weigh that much. I'm all body hair and cod piece, so it's a bit deceiving. So yeah, there's an extra 70 lbs. that could be added to the equation. Of course I do plan on going on the Red Pepper weightloss plan, where my genitals shrivel down to the prepubescent size of Tom's microscopic unit :eek:
Just for your information, that's the crack whore/steroid diet...
And that should say 'prepubescent grizzly bear'... :D
