Had my first kill and it was a cake walk.. it was a 2018 gt ( I know the guy) . 40mph roll in 2nd. I gave him the crack and hazed the tires the through 2nd. .looked like he was going in reverse.. on his defense, not sure he's much of a driver. Are gt's that easy? Im not stock...

Was his the Auto 10 speed? Those with an intake, headers and tune can do low 12's/ high 11's. Specially with a good tire and good driver.

Personally, I don't even waste my gas on stock GTs, lots of stock cars actually.
I'm new to the street thing and modern cars... it was rewarding though..lol you have to imagine, im a 49 year old ....old man with sleeves.. my goal is 1000 whp with this car.. like I said, I raced funny cars with a .96 60' and sold everything 4 years ago and decided to be the old man hurting feelings on the street.. Im just learning these cars... I bought this one as a platform to make power and hurt feelings..

It was a stick car... mine has been modded... small cam, injectors, headers,2.5 catless ,corsa mufflers, upper and lower pulls and tune.. thats how I bought it.. took me a week to find out as I bought it from a dealership... found out the shop that did the work..
Like I said, he wasn't much of a driver I think..

That and his being a stick car is not as fast as the A10 ones. So his car is a mid 12 car with a good driver. Even slower if you said he isnt a driver mod.

Reading on your goals above my quote. If you want 1,000 whp, then I would not try to get more power out of your motor set up you have now. Just look into getting a whole new motor/bottom end that will support the HP goal you are after. Also will need to decide if you are going to stay supercharger or go turbo. For your goal, sounds like a Kong 2650 or twin turbo will be the way to go with a 388, 416 or 427 build.

I kinda want to stay sc.. I have just started my research on making that kind of power.. trying to find the best shop for the work in the va area.. at least withing a few states travel.. this thing is literally a toy... it has its own 3 car garage and all the time in the world..

May be a 427/2650 combo then to achieve it. Since it is a toy, there is always an option to ship it to a shop that is just outside what you desire to drive. Just a thought.

He celebrated all over the wife.
Lol..I got thick skin.. had too many beers to be able to celebrate all over the wife.. old man problems... you know 🤣
The 2nd one was a 2017ish vette.. it was a much better run but I still pulled on him pretty easy.. 60 roll in 3rd and shortly after hitting 4th, I had several cars on him.
It was a 1LT manual..
