Default Please have a N/A Quarter MIle time.

I noticed in "Quarter Miles Times" Pretty much all of it is dominated by SLE (SC) and SSEi or some cars that'* NA but on nitrous.

How about making us N/A guys feel good? Have a separate N/A section so there'* a slim chance us N/A guys can get the number one fastest Bonneville SE/SSE. We want to feel good about owning a SE/SLE/SSE believe it or not

Thoughts?

Cody, I think that'* the challenge for us. We need to make the Top 25 despite our lack of supercharger. Personally, I don't care if there'* a separate L36 list. I just want to put a time up there with the L67 guys

No doubt you can probably match my brothers 97s' old stock time back in April (14.932 with a 2.3x 60' in full street trim with only the spare tire removed).
My question is whether you can match my 95 or his 97 now. I should be good for a 14.7'ish and he should be good for at least that, maybe as low as a high 14.4 with it running like it was at the 1/8 mile track in May (I dropped .2 off his 60', and ran the 1/8 .5seconds and 4 MPH quicker than in April).

But to keep on topic here, I too kinda feel the L36, L27, and LN3 are bing left out here.
We can't really complain though, as Roque is generously volunteering the Top 25 Fastest Bonneville'* page for us.
Maybe someone else out there has the knowledge and Web space to host a NA page and, say, a Top 50 Bonneville'* overall page.

I think it would be a great idea

Often, many N/Aed members are looking to see where their car stands in relation to other N/Aed Bonnevilles. To have a top XX list of N/Aed cars would be very useful for many members, here, and would send a postive message of club support to those without the boost. Any N/Aed car that wants to shoot for Rougue'* top 25 can still do so and post their slip, there.

Actually, that would be true, unfortunantely. But nonetheless, I think the NA 1/4 mile time list is a great idea.
