122 is showing power all day, it's like your car is a front wheel drive Supra. "Let's just got from a roll!" ;)

More power is in the plans for my car, and I'm thinking it's going to be in the form of nitrous. I've got some spacers to drill and tap for direct port... but I'd rather make a copy of Mars' Cavalier and supercharge it...

Eventually I think Alex from Oregon is going to have the best N/A time, he's at a 13.6 right now if I remember correctly and the car wasn't driven by a lightweight replacement driver. ;)

HOLD ON THERE CAP'T!

I'm not done yet, and this cam is starting to piss me off.

It is not nearly aggressive enough, and will likely get swapped out over the winter.

And Barbie will be happy to know you called her a "lightweight replacement", ROFL!!

Now i dare you to come to NE. She is NOT one to upset.

Super charger or turbo for you? YES

Nitrous just sucks IMHO.

There's nothing wrong with nitrous. And it gets along with radical cams a lot better than boost!

I want the extra power all of the time and not just when naucing. ;)

Especially since the huge effin brakes are going to stay and get a matching set for the back.

I also prefer a turbo over the spray. Its much work but the power is always there when you need it

14.7@93 on a slipping clutch for me at the PA meet. I don't think anyone else had a new best...the track surface sucked and traction was hard to come by.

First run I wheel hopped so bad it popped the hood. Second run was my 14.7 with a soft launch and gradual apply of the loud pedal in 1st gear. 2nd went to redline almost instantly but 3rd gear held better. Went downhill every run though and was running 15s in the 80s on my 3rd & 4th runs so I just quit hurting it since I had to save enough friction material for the drive home.

I'll be pulling the trans to see what the problem is and giving SPEC a call.

(But Jon & Erc...that means even with a hurt clutch and a greasy track it was STILL faster than my best run ever with the slushbox in my 95) :D

There were certainly no new "bests" on that track. It was damn slippery.

13.90 for me was a bit of a disappointment, and with having to disconnect the shift light (it's on the same fuse as the troubled O2 sensor) Barb elected to just leave it in DRIVE, which slowed her best to a 14.13 @ 97.

Well that wasn't me. It was Barb and I have not been able to get any closer than 13.68.
