Shelby S/S Goes To 800HP

formatting link

Really, 750 wasn't enough? And next up, it's an even 1,000...? Sure
the Shelby S/S is a high-end car, but 750 HP is crazy HP. Hell,
that's serious full drag car numbers from just a few years back.

Thus spake Suzanne McKenzie :
Lots of guys I'm going to be racing against are making 800 - 900 on 410 inch SBC and FBC. But the engine only has to do that for about 7 and a half seconds. And burns methanol. And has 14:1 piston/heads. And ...
1000 hp? Aren't we getting into Veyron territory? And how many of them have been wrecked by drivers who couldn't appreciate what 1000 hp is capable of?

I know. Detroit muscle cars have become bad-ass, something a friend of mine with late-model 333HP BMW M3 acknowledges. 'I used to mess with [the older] Mustangs, Camaros, but not anymore... now I always get smacked down.'

With that amount of firepower, I'd have to have a revolving credit account with the State and local cops. 'Sorry, again, sir, could you just put it on my tab?'
