Brian KimmelBrambleton, VA'99 LightningBrian Kimmel showed up with his '99 Lightning, and the Whipple-blown monster held its own quite well. Unlike the two JLP-prepared trucks, Kimmel's Lightning showcased the stock engine measurements. In addition, Kimmel's hauler was quite consistent, as its two best runs were within .003-second of each other. After opening with a 10.46, JDM's Shaun Lacko and Kimmel dumped some weight and changed the upper blower pulley for some more power. Once done, the truck flew to a pair of 10.31s. Oh, and in case you're wondering, even without the passenger seat and the ballast, the truck still weighed in at a hefty 4,690 pounds, making it the heaviest vehicle in the shootout. Imagine what the truck could have run if it was 1,000 pounds lighter? Mind bending, isn't it?
Good Info in this Article. Good to see the "Lightnings" at work again.
