It goes both ways! Just because it is on the internet doesn't mean that are fact. I think real world result are much stronger!

Sorry to see it end like this over something so stupid, But I guess you would rather have someone lie right to your face then tell you the truth.
This isn't even about this discussion. I know damn well about integrety of sources,as i've been TESTED on that topic in courses i've taken, i was just merely pointing out some quick numbers since no one else has given them. I'd love to see better numbers for stock cars, no matter what the engine.

'll take the truth every ******* time. I have the real world results, and i'll glady accept anything i'm shown that'* more then cirucmstantial evidence. Most of my writing wasn't directed at anyone in paticular, it took off wihout me there for most of it anyways. It was my opinion, and that was it.

I'd like to point out, that I'm not peeved or pissed or angry. I'd like to ask anyone to read this http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...=275862#275862 because frankly i just don't care. I'll never be the best at a bonneville, even based on money, i'll spend the huge amount to have the "best" on another platform. The type of racing i enjoy the most requires a VERY balanced car. However a bonneville isn't great at that either..

I don't have Rogues insane power, but i can talk it up with him like no tomorrow, and know exactly what'* possible
I don't have willwrens relentless brakes, but they'll out brake my tires.
I don't have the tossable suspension under Dames sheet metal, but i've got it more responsive then 2004 auto'*
I don't have a powdercoated ADTR but i'll give you an affordable option, with no profit for myself.

I just want a dumb grin on my face looking over my dash

Homor Simpson once said "No matter what you do, there'* always going to be someone better"

I think everyone should just chillax.
No need in stressing about the small stuff.

They've theoretically got the worst-cast scenario: nose-heavy and front-wheel drive :P

See .... this crap is why I left the 5.0 forums and even sold my Pony.
Live and let live.

Old Chinese saying ...

Never remove a fly from a FRIENDS face with an axe.

Dude , I hope your Bonny turns 10'* even if its only in your mind. Enjoy the car not the numbers.

Jason, whatever your reasons for leaving (if you are indeed leaving which I hope is not the case) I hope you find the balance in your life that your seeking. Sometimes being so focused on one or a few things can burn you out and I know with a work and school load it can be difficult to do a variety of things and do them well. School is most important of course so good luck with that. Work will always suck, even if you enjoy it and I hope you DO find something you enjoy, now and after your education is finished.

One day youll make the money that will get you a car that always bring a smile to your face (or a grin over your dashboard). I'm glad to have met you, spent time with you, and discussed things with you, even if some of those things I did not always agree with.

I truly hope that you decide to visit us as often as your balanced life will allow but I also hope you get out and find some other things to expand your horizons beyond cars and girls (I find the Discovery channel helps some but nothing is better than travel). Before you know, a wife, kids, mortgage etc.. will take their toll and having creating outlets will be the only thing to save your sanity.

As for now, enjoy your youth for it flees all to quickly. Don't sweat the small things and don't smell the sweaty things (or something like that).

-- Todd

I'm not modding my car for numbers though! Seriously! I have fun everytime i drive it (unless i get werid noises... I went to the track for myself, and to see what i could cut. My first 60 was 2.26 and i was grinning ear to ear the hole way down the track!

Oh yeah speaking of noises...

Same here Jason. I enjoy my car because it is fun to drive. Every time I drive it there is a smile on my face. I would like to take it to the track stock, well relitively stock ( boost bypass mod and K&N air filter). I'm guessing a 14.8?
