I was wondering if anyone that used to own a K3/K4 has dragged their new K5? stock vs stock. My K5 has more power than my K3 did but it has a much taller 1st gear which may hurt elapse time. I suspect the trap speed to be higher though. My stock '03 with the front strapped down ran a 10.1 @ 140mph. Any guess on what the K5 will do strapped down?

i ran up on a 03 with a full ti force system and dusted him as soon as we shifted to 2nd... i launched better than him (he wheelied too much) but the taller first gear plus my taller rear tire (running a 190/60 is like subtracting 2 or 3 teeth from the rear sprocket) let him catch me in first... but once he shifted i took him, then i shifted about 20mph later and REALLY took off - get some sprockets and take the k5 to the track!
