Good stuff. Was the FBO ISF racing the nitrous GSF? hard to tell who was racing who lol

Any idea how big of a shot the GSF is running?

Of course. The meet was in Carlsbad but the "fun" was in Mexico which is about 1 hour south.

Yea, I was wondering that, first I thought it was the nitrous GSF was the camera car but looking back maybe it was the RCF with exhaust?

Woulda thought the FBO ISF would pull away from a RCF with just exhaust though

exactly! I know a FBO ISF will pull away from a RCF with just an exhaust....I've tested that theory on several occasions....lol.

You sure this was in Mexico?!?! Looking at the maps, I'm not quite so sure about that....🤔😎
147mph also is what I see there...keep that pedal to the metal and I promise you'll see 170+ lol (if and when it's safe/clear.
Good runs👍

I believe the ISF was running RCF if it's same camera car from the beginning of video that was recording. That RCF had headers and exhaust. But not 100% sure if it's same RCF from beginning of video. Will ask original poster of the video that question on Youtube

The ISF was racing the RCF with a Meisterschaft catback exhaust & stock headers, he's stated on a video before this one that he's never had headers on his RCF. I thought the ISF was going to do better than that as well, being that its FBO & the lighter one of the bunch going up against a catback only RCF. But who knows, the video says the ISF has a "custom" exhaust, for all we know that could be a muffler delete mated to the stock exhaust making it not truly FBO

From what I understand (someone correct me if I'm wrong) that the blue top 2UR doesn't benefit from headers the same way the ISF/Silver top 2UR does because of the breathing enhancements done to the motor. Also from what I read the GSF/RCF gain quite a bit from an aftermarket exhaust, although I don't know the exact whp #'s but it's a decent amount, so I don't think the results are that suprising honestly.
