Re: Volvo Drifting (McDonald)

Thanks for the clarification.<p>I must disagree about the 1k hp. In high school, my neighbor had a 8 second GNX. Granted it wasn't 300 hp, but it wasn't 1000 at full 30+ psi boost either (stage 2 setup).

Re: Volvo Drifting (2k2S80t6)

Intresting, do You know how much horsepowers he did have? You do need a lot of them to do 8's.<br>At the local official "streetrace" here made a Beemer 8.08 s. and the car had 1422 bhp's. <br>A Ferrari Enzo made only 12,17 with 660 bhp's, and a lot of other cars made 9's, all with about 700-1000 bhp's.<br>So you do need a lot of power making 8's.<p>M<br><BR><BR>

Re: Volvo Drifting (McDonald)

Not sure, but he had a '83 S10 Blazer with a 383 Stroker that was close to 1000 hp and he said it had more than his GNX. I am fairly certain the 8 second runs weren't all motor (NO2).
