And that's why Ray and his car are multiple national champions and the benchmark of the category.
He only passed 1 car before turn 7. Patience is rewarded.

happened to watch this video again.....there is no way anybody could compete realistically vs this car, the hp difference between even the fastest turbo cars is staggering. He drives past all cars like they are standing still....

From my observation the Cherry Monaro has more horsepower, it just doesn't get it to the ground as well as the Falcon does.

hard to tell when you watch cherry incar vids, it does look like its floating more through corners and powering down.

I was just amazing how fast it is in a straight line, and not surprising one of the reasons he dominates. A turbo 4cl with 350-400hp cannot compete with such grunt differences.

Michael King in the Evo 8 broke Hislop's lap record at Wakefield Park last time out, added to his SMSP lap record set earlier in the year. From memory Scott Cook (nice name that) broke Hislop's lap record at Tailem Bend in his S13. Last time I checked an Evo 8 and an S13 were both 4 cylinder turbo cars :wink:

Speed over one lap doesn’t win you seven national championships.

Ray has engineered a fantastic car that does everything about as well as possible for a chassis of that weight. He also drives it pretty much to perfection, with the maturity and minimal mistakes that comes from decades of racing experience. It looks like the competition is getting closer, but he is still undeniably the class of the category.

Can’t wait for Baskerville!

I would love to see ray with the later Coyote engines. The high end ones are quite a lot more powerful and longer lasting than the 50 year old Boss 302 and a good weight drop off the front end. If only someone could come up with a reason for him to upgrade.

I would say the quick answer as to why he wouldn't is that he would drop around 200 peak HP Steve.
