David Reese - We chose Spaghetti Menders because of the simplicity and neatness of the wiring install.
The way cars are today it requires a lot of wiring that you don't have to contend with when using the Spaghetti Menders kit.
The owner of the first car I am sending you is Rob and Steve Hankinson. It started life as a GTM kit car and exploded from there. We installed a 427 ls based Corvette engine that was modified by Bishop Automotive and Machine, topped with an F1R procharger that I myself custom mounted onto the rear of the engine using a jackshaft from front of the engine to turn. It has a 6 speed - G96 Gt3 trans axle 20 in modular concept wheels, Custom leather interior, back up cameras, Biggstuff 3 electronics to fire the coil on plug msd coils. The body was customized per my request at Thunder Valley Customs in White, GA.
We are planning on do a lot of daily driving with the car. It should make in the neighborhood of 750 to 900 at flywheel which will make it real fun to drive seeing as it only weighs in at 2300 lbs. Being that we plan on street driving it, we had to have it registered causing us to have to jump threw some hoops as far as getting all controls to operate like a stock car. That’s where Spaghetti Menders came in, allowing us to easily install such things as blinker control panels etc.
We will be making the trip in the near future to the North Carolinas Maxton Mile to try our luck at 240 mph. We set our goals at 200 and plan on moving up from there.

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for providing products we can depend on come race day. Our car is wired with Spaghetti Menders.
This product stands up to the punishment we give it week in and week out. Thanks for providing quality products!

I thought I would send you a report on how we made out at the track this past Sunday.
Before using your wiring kit, I had more electrical problems than anyone could imagine. It was so bad, I was forced to run two 16 volt batteries in my race car just to keep everything activated. I was having a voltage drop of close to 6 volts when everything was on during a pass down the track. I know for a fact that the car was suffering the way it was wired. The final "wire that broke the electrical system's back" came during a test session in April 2009.
I ordered one of your complete kits to replace every piece of wire in my car the minute I got home from the races. It was by far, the easiest and best engineered product I have ever installed. The installation instructions were very easy to follow, and everything went together perfectly.
When I was removing the old wiring, I saved every bit of it to see how many extra pounds I was carrying down the track with me. I took out 17 lbs of junk!! With your kit installed, I was also able to remove that second battery along with the cables which brought the total weight savings including the wires to over 57 lbs!
This past Sunday I was able to try everything out at the track. My biggest concern was the voltage drop with everything activated. After downloading the data from the on-board computer, I almost fell over, the total voltage drop during that pass was only 2 volts with the following items running:
Engine Fuel Pump
Nitrous Fuel Pump
2 stages of Nitrous (8 solenoids)
You have supplied me with exactly what I needed, and in doing so I was able to provide the race fans at our track with the excitement they were looking for with a new best ET and MPH for our car. I have been telling everyone I know about your company along with showing off how nice and neat everything looks compared to what was there.
I can't thank you enough for the top notch product you are supplying to the Drag Racing World.
Thank you very much,
The nitrous controller that I purchased was flawless, even with the addition of the timer for my second stage and the bang buttons for my two stage engine purge. NO PROBLEMS!
Earlier this year, I told your wife that you're like a MAD SCIENTIST and can create anything. This season I never had to worry about my nitrous activation and could concentrate more on tuning and driving.
I outdid my ET and MPH goad for the year and didn't hurt anything.
I will be in touch next year for a friends car that he wants the same set up as mine.
Thanks for a great product and customer service,

In 1999 I arrived from New Zealand to reside in Australia, bringing my 1996 Jerry Bickel built Pontiac with me. We ran the car at Calder Park Raceway in Melbourne Australia... being the first Nitrous car in Australia to run the first 6 second pass at 208 miles per hour... we ran the car for one season and due to other commitments.. the car was stored for eight years... in 2008 we refreshed the engine and had made many changes to the car (i.e.) updating nitrous system with speed tech... two stage Annular port nozzles and a dual plate system for the twin dominators...Also being the first race car in Australia running with Spaghetti Menders full wiring system and control units... We have since run the car at West Sydney International drag way, we ran in excess of 210 mile per hour in the high 6's with a few issues to be sorted out, which we have now down so...hoping to run in the low 6's at Sydney early February 2010.

Roger Johansson and his 2004 Mustang from Jerry Haas holds the European record for nitrous 1/4 mile at 6.14 and 229.75 mph. The 1/8-mile recorded of 4.00 at 183 mph on unleaded fuel.
The world’s quickest nitrous car on unleaded fuel, Using a 830 ci Fulton Competition engine, Lenco trans, Race Pac sd300, msd 7531 and running Vp sv05 unleaded fuel.
For my nitrous controller I contacted Bob at Spaghetti Menders and he recommended I use the new Quick set timers with the 2 stage nitrous controller. Allowing me to adjust the delay of both stages with 100th 10th and seconds. Now I can fine tune the car more accurately when using the nitrous.
