Finally, after listening to my friend tell me how fast his car was ('70 Barracuda, 318, 727 tranny, headers, cam, Holley, etc...) I finally made him put it to the test. Last night after work around 11pm we went out and found a desolate turnaround off Loop 1604 here in SA. I pulled out my G-Tech and plugged it in and explained to him how it worked. The first run was a 15.89 @ 91.5 mph. I was pretty impressed. He thought it was good for 14's though... Two more runs turned out a 16.03 and a 16.01 at similar mph. I'd say the little G-tech is pretty accurate. Too much fun though. A couple of cops showed up across the way from our shutdown area so we called it a night. I told him we could have picked up more girls in the Mustang...

This Friday we are putting a 440 in place of the 318 to make it a "real' Cuda...more fun with the G-tech to follow /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

Years ago, I was at grudge night at Englishtown, N.J. with the club I was with. I had my 85, 5.0 5 spd LX ( God do I miss that car!!!!!!!!!! ) I was running 15.20's with a broken heat riser ( stuck shut, didn't know it at the time ). This grease ball comes up to me with this old POS Nova, and ask's me if I want to buy a real race car. He told me he had 4 grand into the motor and wanted to sell the car. I told him politely that I wasn't interested. Later, my brother came up to me, after watching the "race car" run and told me it was running very high 16's, LOL! BTW, my 85 still had 2.73's and I was granny shifting at 5,300 rpm's. A fellow club member had the exact clone to mine and was running 14.80's.

Hale Boppe comet shot off my roof. See you can use 100 iso at night with no flash!
