    Hrmm... Its nifty, but I wouldn't call it a sleeper. Its caged out with drag slicks on the rear, a big wing on the back, intercooler holes in the front, and sounds like a monster. I do like the twin fuel systems with different octanes though, thats pretty smart!

    Really cool, but it should be on a drag strip or something.. Assuming they can ever figure out how to get the power to the pavement and not just roast tires.

    Yes, few guys have it for higher-octane fuel but most setups I've seen use methanol.

    Only thing that's new to me is the pump stays off until it's activated. Seems like keeping the pump on would yield quicker response(with the injectors off, fuel would just recirculate to the tank but you have pressure when needed).
