Y'all probably little hotter than us in SC. 100 degrees is real common with 100% humidity. Though that is probably when we drive ours around the most. One of the reasons we went e85 so we don't have to worry so much about iat temps on the street.I wouldn't drive these trucks in the HOT TX summers even with A/C. Trans temps, iat's, blower and engine temps heat soak easily. Mine hibernates during the summer and comes out in the fall/winter/spring.
A/C is not needed to be a street vehicle. I personally hate a/c. I love the heat thats why i moved down to Tampa. Anything below 75*F is cold to me. I got rid of my ac for two reasons, i hate the shit, and no reason carrying around extra weight for no reason.That's street cred with me. No A/C = not a street truck here in the south lol

Nitrous at track only(legal).... On street we take it out(legal).. pretty simple logic. Either way I was referencing street "style" trucks. Not race only type stuff or trucks that don't leave the house unless going to the track lol. Specifically why I would prefer weights of those trucks that been in the 5's "street" or not. Gives us a better understanding of where our truck sits.Didnt you say you use nitrous? By your way of thinking, how is that still a street truck? Nitrous is illegal in a STREET vehicle.
I respect your opinion. Lack of A/C isn't a "deal breaker" for a street truck. It's a subjective topic at best lol. I did elude to the fact that we just poke fun at those people around here without it because it is hot as balls and we call them "race trucks". If your happy to not have AC then that's all that matters. From here out I would just prefer to know the weight of said trucks that have ran 5's. Seems to be a better scale to gauge performance than what is and what isn't "street".A/C is not needed to be a street vehicle. I personally hate a/c. I love the heat thats why i moved down to Tampa. Anything below 75*F is cold to me. I got rid of my ac for two reasons, i hate the shit, and no reason carrying around extra weight for no reason.
Nitrous isn't an emissions issue.I recall when Saleen offered a 2004 Focus with a Nitrous set up straight from the dealership. Yes. Owner would have to fill and hook up bottle but everything was there.
Emission laws vary by state and within each state's county as well. When I live in Maryland there were other counties that required emissions so I always moved to those counties that didn't....
Not really because of emission laws it just worked out that way. LOL
