Yeah, that profanity seemed out of place. Nice kill on the GT.

I am actually a little suprised that you beat the Grand Prix. Yes Grand Prix GT'* are slow, and not nearly as fast as people make them out to be, but it should be faster than your Bonneville. Does your Bonneville have the Series 1 or 2? The Grand Prix has a 200 horse series II 3800, and it weighs 3500lbs. Your Bonneville has 205 (assuming it has the Series II, I think series 1 is 180 or something) horsepower and weighs 3800lbs. To me this means the Grand Prix would be faster. But on the street anything can happen, and I don't doubt your win, but I wouldn't be talking **** about a car that is just as capable as yours. Nice kill nonetheless. But you are right, GP'* aren't what they are cracked up to be without a blower, but if they have a blower watch out, because they aren't slow, and can easily be made much faster.

I agree with the others though, keep the profanity to a minimal please.

BTW...Wanna race my Grand Prix?

And FYI-one of my friends has a bone stock GP GT and his PB is 15.39. Just figured I'd throw that out there.

OK, bring it on. But may I remind you that 6 months ago our GTP was basically stock, and if I had to guess I would say it was 2 seconds slower than now. If that could happen in 180 days, you never know what else we could do in 90. Although much more modding after this point is very doubtful. After we get our 42.5lb Injectors and get our 12.6 or 12.5 run we have been trying to get, we are done. We don't need to break things.

Man sometimes I just gotta keep my mouth shut. I'm not backing down-I'll race a Ferrari-but I know when I'm beat :( . My goal by the end of the year is 12 anything. Next year is a whole different ball game. If I wasn't off work for the past 8months I'd be right there with ya.

I only have 2 problems with ClubGP. 1 their emoticons suck. 2, they fight over the stupidest things all the time, and it is just rediculous. You can't post your opinion without someone flaming you or calling you a sheep. That is why I am glad I found this forum. I visit ClubGP then this forum, but this forum is much more enjoyable because it seems on this forum the members are more mature. But you can definately tell that the ClubGP forum is a lot bigger because it is much more modern and advanced. Other than those 2 things, ClubGP is great, and there are a lot of very knowledgeable people on there that can help with almost anything. This forum is great though, and with a few more members, it could be just as good if not better than ClubGP.

hey, yea sorry bout all the language, i was kinda worked up that night.... well i agree, grand prixs should be faster than our 4 door boats... but from what i've found my car weights just under 3500, and the stock times for a 96 bonne ( which all have series 2), is 7.5, and the 97 gps are 7.7, but maybe that was false data..... i wish there was some site that had all information, about every car, old and new, and it was deffinately accurate, anyone know of one?
