Is this with a full clutch, as in not pro-shifted?

Cause otherwise it's not impressive for a "manually shifted car".

Nevermind, didn't see the vid. Appears to be clutching when he shifts.

that's fast as hell but what do you guys think FastMatt would do on a lower elevation track that will hold all his power, and if he can put all his power down with out breaking anything, do you guys think he will get the record?

Its a real manual with a tranny just like mine. But it probably does have a $5000 Tilton clutch but no pro shifted stuff.

I know , not bad for a stock trans and one hell of a clutch setup.

Heres some pics of a Lex with one hell of a big ass turbo and ran with the stock trans and not even gutted. I seen this car run 8.40's with my own eyes .I'm still having a hard time beleaving what I seen.This guy lives in my area .

I'm not sure if it matters whether it's a real shifted 5 or 6 speed, either way that Supra is dirty fast on a clutch shift.

Matt could probably give it a run eventually, but I don't think 8.30s are *quite* in his car yet. (Not even at sea level).

I agree with the 5 or 6 speed thing. As long as its a true manual using a clutch in all gears. I think the reason the 6-speed is so popular is because there a more cars that can run those times being that the trannys seem to hold up.
