Thats Apples, a board member. The car has the full Nowack conversion, near 500 horsepower. He doesn't have much time to post lately given his professional careeer and racing hobbies.

Doesn't the orange segments on the tach flash on the Nowak cars when redline is reached?

I can't anser to that but if I recall, his was an early one. Maybe they didn't do that on the first ones.

He's shifting @ 7500 rpm so he definitely has some chip work, tach is moving slow, probably stock gears. Other than that its hard to tell just by looking at the gauges..

Great vid. Anyone know how to rip it from that site? I like to keep the good ones on file.

I found this old thread linking to the video file I have. The link doesn't appear to be working :(

If someone can host it, I can upload it for those that want to keep it.

For stock gearing, it would be 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th gears. Watch the odometer. He goes 1.2 miles with more than 1/2 the distance above 140mph.

Just thought I'd make a quick comparison. It takes thar Nowack car 12.2 seconds to get from 60-130.
here is a video of the D/A M5. It takes 8.0-8.1 seconds to go 60-130. This is on a 90%humid day at 90degrees outside. The nitrous cooler was not active.

Supercharged car with 600hp vs N/A car with 500hp, more like 450 though, thats why.
