Re: You know you have too much horsepower when:

<font color=purple>When your rear Boggers wear out much faster than the fronts, despite the fact you never see pavement, rocks, or anything other than mud - AND you never unlock your T-case. True story - buddy of mine wore down his rear Boggers over the course of a couple years of mud racing with a Land Cruiser sporting a 477" alcohol & nitrous fed BBC.</font color=purple>

Re: You know you have too much horsepower when:

When you smash the gas and the bolts holding your seat too the floor snap.
When you forehead looks like the nose of a bulldog permenently.
when your windsheild shatters when you start too move.
When the hood of your car blows off it's hinges.
When the trunk of your car blows off it's hinges.
When you can out accellerate the space shuttle.
When your swampers make enuff wind power too power Las Vegas.
When TEX is riding with you,get's dizzy and says I'm gonna go buy some BFG's[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

To much horsepower is just barely enough.

Thanks, Ray

Re: You know you have too much horsepower when:

I saw a MPeg of a dyno run that is just right for everything on that list.
94 Toyota Supra. Street leagle (once a year I'm sure).
874 Rear Wheel Horse power. They say 20% drive line loss so he's over 1,000 hp at the crank on a twin turbo 3.0 liter! Not sure if he was running NOS but good god thats a lot of power. The guy that showed me this knows the guy and said 4th gear at 80mph flooring it will vaporize the tires. Talked to a guy at the muffler shop that some work on the 4 inch Exhaust system. He said it took off so hard it gave him a headach when the guy took him for a ride. Said it felt like somebody was standing on his chest when they were in it.
Some of them rice burners out there are not posers.
