K. Uh no I'm not scared of that car or your junk. Racing is not a waste of time for me. To much BS is a waste of time. I know you call that one h/c ls3 I ran slow because of it's track times down here also. Right?

My ported stock IM/TB, Kooks headers, RF dry, my FF sensor and tuning. 28" drag pack.
He tries hard. Lol.

That's awesome for a mani, bolt on, car. Close to a 10.

weird. I hear the stance guys say that around here...

Good runs. Yeah your definitely on worn suspension, when i first got my car and decided to race, someone commented at auto x about my massive bodyroll, and on the street my car did just like yours in a race.

I scored a BMR spring set and much newer Bilsteins for my SS from a totaled z28 in my local junkyard.

It dropped the car probably 1.5-2inches (swapped wheels too) and ive gotta say id neeeeever go back to the stock setup unless i was buying everything brand new, and building it for a friend.

The turning response and performance is great, im like you and have spots here in the VA/NC area where id have to go offroad or hit some decent slanted entrance ways. Just be gentle. lol

i didn't say any of the h/c ls3 cars you ran were slow.....they did beat you.

No reason to be scared tho. But it wouldn't be close at all.

Ok....doesn't mean buster will run that. And i know jose. But until any of us does then we haven't. Just how it is even for myself.

we're like 800miles apart. Likely would never happen. But it would take a legit 130mph car to run with the old bolt on ls6 and that was at 417whp and not the 451 it made after further refinement. It was a animal after that.

yup....it's down at the moment.

there has been guys on here i have run.....been a while tho. I've ran 123mph turbo mach, 500whp honda, turbo s2000 that trapped 124, pullied sra swapped 03 cobro, 630whp gtr, 124mph coyotahs, numery h/c and cam only cars over the years including a 130+ mph cam only ls3 vette. The only thing i came across that beat the car on the street was the 10sec 135 mph gtr......from a dig.

Bolt on Coyotes were no run for it......like not at all. Really besides the gtr the cammed ls3 vette was the only thing that stayed close.

These new auto's are changing the game, so I can see why the street guys like them, but its still boring IMO unless its an all out drag car.

Lol. Who are the stance guys? It was just a joke as not many people talk down about my car in real life. I would still smile. Lol.

Thanks for info. Maybe one day I'll come around to it.

Ok. Well yea by less than a car right? As I could prolly say the same thing as no gap. Also just going from his speeds. Think he'd wanna run again? He's in the crew right?

Someone said he should gap me by five cars. I'd like to see this.

It'd be cool to run you man. I know you know your stuff. Did you put a rear gear in it? Or what does third pull out to? Your mani car is a beast!

What gears did you throw in? Never been to one of those. I'll check it out & maybe be able to get out there. I'm thinking you'd bring the beast though?
