F1 cars used to get 1200hp+ from a 1.5L.. 20 years ago. Anyways I think these guys are probably being too optimistic and the car probably puts down somewhere in the neighborhood of 700awhp (still very, very respectable). Then they apply their ego-boosting 30% correction factor to obtain an eye-popping "estimated crank" number. Correct me if the actual measured chassis-dyno number is available somewhere.

Yea, that's usually just a slot on the excuse post. "Oh, but our car is street legal!" like "We drive it to the track and you used a trailer!" and "Full interior!"

I was actually thinking the 4000cc/min @70% was a little low. I mean, my little punter has 3400cc/min of fuel flow available. They must run some huge fuel pressure.
