    Two or maybe even four IA 20.1 on each one.

    What do yall think.
    SS + truck = FTL...

    You need an SUV or VAN.

    Also, you'll need 80+ batteries @18v

    Astro van? Or if we got an SUV, what would be best?
    And does it matter what kind of batteries Or does it have to be the one built for stereo equipment?

    Astro Van would be ideal.

    I'd recommend some type of deep cycle, 16V battery banks...

    Alright thanks.

    Astro it is. Any Ideas as to what would be louder than MTs?

    Nothing really.

    MT's have really proven themselves in db drag. TONS of people ran them last year.


    This is going to be quite an expensive setup. Why dive into such an expensive class right off the bat? I'd take the cheaper route at start in street max to where you are limited on batteries (and amps i believe?). It'll save you A LOT of time and money, and you'll get more experience that you can transfer over to a super street car.

    Even the SS guys are doing mid 160's in the lowest classes.

    Re: What all do I need to compete in the World Finals

    Put it this way...in order to be competitive at this years world finals, you would need to be doing numbers like this:

    SS1-2 NW: 161+
    SS 1-2: 164+
    SS 3-4: 166+
    SS 5+: 168+

    But to win at world finals, you need to add at least 2 db's to each of those scores!

    I would look for a bunch of 8V batts. If you're still in ocala, I know someone who has 54 8V batts for sale right now and a 16V charger that he is looking to sell.

    In SS 3-4 right now, Gorman holds the record at 167.4...but that's probably going to be broken real soon, by either Gorman or someone else...

    IF you somehow get some Wardens, be ready to spend some money. From what I hear, they can take 4 40.1s which Im sure equals around 20,000 watts.

    I was just guessing, figured they are underrated a bit and was saying 5000x1 but I wasnt really thinking LOW impedence.

    Re: What all do I need to compete in the World Finals

    I'd say a competitive number in SMax 1-2 is 158+ and a competitive number in SMax 3-4 is about a 160+

    Those numbers would be competitive but I wouldn't guess numbers like that would win WF anytime soon.

    Scottie's done higher than that in dBDrag, just not World Record stipulations...
    I know Scottie is loud. And from what I hear, Ben has also tested higher then those scores. There's quite a few people that are already higher than those scores...but it was a general reference of competitive scores, not winning scores.

    Werd.

    So what are the stipulations in order for a score to be a WR while in competition? It has to be a 3x show right?... and?

    yeah 3X or WF and you have to break the old record twice, meaning you break the record then you have to back up that new record score.
