Default lt1 goes 9's n/a back to back 7 times :)

rather than post all 7 slips I'll post up the 2 best...
all runs today were footbrake and with mufflers

1.422 60ft
6.32@109.24
9.946@135.25

1.44 60ft.
6.34@109.22
9.957@135.47 (had to back it up lol)


all in all car ran dead nuts consistant so much infact that i brought home money heres all 7 passes

9.94
9.95
9.96
9.97
9.97
9.98
9.98

I'd say thats pretty consistant

looks like the theory was correct rings finally seated...watchout the transbrake is com in..Did I mention that was with a 4.11 gear? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="gr_images/icons/wink.gif" />

Wait till jow actaully puts a PA on his... but the thing is, she's got more than 9.94 on a footbrake <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="gr_images/icons/cool.gif" />

Lol thanks harold I'll let you know when i need to use that farm use tag..may want to cruise it one day <img border="0" alt="[jester]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_jest.gif" />

Frank 9.73 is no doubt good with a lt1 in a 1st gen ..however, I'm no where near his race weight.Nor have I geared/stalled to its potential..I'm not one to rush into things .I've only ran this car Nov. of 02' and only 2 weeks of march..This is just the beginning but thanks you just gave me one more goal to shoot for <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

Sweet!

That would put you behind Vince so #2 for LT1 NA?

That 1st gen doesn't count it's a hybrid and has to be lighter than your Trans Am.
