FLATOUT INVESTMENTS/WTS DYNAMICS #10 We dove deep into LEE DENNIS @TangStangGT500 SUBSCRIBE/YT CHANNEL and IG new TT C6 CORVETTE Street car. We spoke about his awesome modding and tunning experience he had with his SHELBY GT 500 with Ken from @Palmbeachdyno you can check out their website RIGHT HERE. YT CHANNEL and IG
HIGH PERFORMANCE MODDING AND TESTING/TUNNNG AND DRAG RACING AT IS FINEST FORD VS CHEVY NOT EXACTLY
Myself and Lee spoke about how his Shelby GT500 literally opened some amazing social media doors and his awesome experiences he had when he came down to Palm beach to meet with Ken and after they decided the right full bolt on setup + E85 his Shelby GT500 was putting down 1200 HP no joke power for a street car. He than got invited to private track rental to kick some fucking ass. He got his chance to have the car reviewed by David Patterson @thatdudeinblue YT CHANNEL and got to race @Streetspeed717 1000hp C7 ZR1 and go to beat him 4 times but when he went to post his YT video things changed for worse as he did want to admit that Lees Shelby actually won on 4 different races.
We will be reaching out to him to understand why that was not cool at all.
As he mentioned he also got to race and hang out with all of the following Youtubers:
THE LAMBOGHINI STO
We briefly covered the new 2020 Lamborghini STO what STO Stands for which I actually had to go google and I wanted punch my self in the face for that one common Albert what the fuck lol.
WHAT 1200 HORSEPOWER REALLY IS AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE NEW 1000 HP STANDARD CAME TO BE
Not too long ago in the early 2000s there was a time when 1000HP Street cars were very rare and not house hold of street racing person and or car guy/car girls uses through around at all. These were NHRA and seriously ridiculous race cars that had the holy grail of Horsepower and now in 2020 and in the past 20 years things have really evolved from those days.
Today you better have no less than 1000 HP if you want to start to be competitive and actually win races and not by a mile either. These will be neck and neck wins where you win by inch even though its winning its not impressive winning lol. Of course fuel tunning technology and factory ECUs have really made it possible for the pony cars and muscle cars and even the new Supercar kid on the block the C8 to actually achieve these insane street car hp numbers and still be drivable without a full tall MHT or Micky Thomson Drag racing tire and put the power down to the ground.
UNDERGROUND RACING 3500 LAMBORGHINI HURUCAN IS THE STANDING MILE AND STREET RACING CAR GODS
I mentioned how underground racing YT CHANNEL and the 3500HP HURUCAN have literally paved the way to revolutionize and giving Supercars the ability to battle and race with some of the fastest street cars/pony cars of today. I remember when they starting breaking 9 second 1/4 miles times and said holy shit this is exactly the type of High performance shop I had wanted to build since I was high school unfortelty they beat me to the Twin Turbos lol. They kept on kicking ass and than took all at the time their Gallardo weapons to the Texas2k standing mile and the rest is history. They have now accomplished the HP insanity that is a streetable 3500 HP TT Lamborghini Kit which is just fucking badass.
GETTING TO MEET THE STIG FROM TOP GEAR AND HAVING HIM AS FLATOUT INVESTMENTS PODCAST FIRST GUEST WAS HONOR
Lee had a fantastic question for me which was "who is the coolest person you've had on your podcast n why"
As all my guests have been amazing true car enthusiast I was able to have the STIG from TOP GEAR and that was just an honor and mile stone for me especially being the die hard car guy Iam. I had grown up watching TOP GEAR since I was kid and to than actually be speaking to the STIG him self was just one of those holy shit I need to pitch my self moments. He was one of the most famous race car drivers who was just grounded and did not talk down to you but to you. We had amazing podcast lasting 3 hours spending a big portion of the time talking about one of the most amazing Race cars on the planet the PORSCHE 917. Not just any Porsche 917 Chassis 004 which won LEMANS back in 1970. This was both of ours favorite race car and I was able to learn so much insider information I did not know about the 917 and of the Racing Industry back in the CAM AM Racing series days which is one my all time favorite badass racing eras in all of racing history.
