I drove Darkstrom's car along time ago at E-towne. It ran 11.8 or so breaking a rod at the 1000ft mark. Also I drove Malofquest's car at MIR once and it ran an 11.7. This was all along time ago, you might be able to find it if you do a search or contact Darkstrom and Malofquest.

so i ask.... how reliable is an IS that throws down 11's all day long?? and for daily driving can you crank down the boost to a more normal level for gas mileage/engine longevity reasons, or once youve gone stage 2/3, are you pretty much driving a rocket to the grocery store and back everyday?

You can absolutely turn the boost down and keep your rpms below boost and it will drive like a normal IS....Then when you hit the track put some higher octane race gas/ sticky tires and run higher boost and go after an 11 with the proper set-up. It is nice to have an extra vehicle for the just incase scenarios that can occur with ANY fast car.

so who wants to guess who will be the first to break into the 10's this year?

ISMAN? LEXISPOOLED? DARKSTORM? DT1313? LTUNED&BOOSTED's car (new owner) TREKSTER? TSOPRANOMB?
