i don't think theres enough bonneville owners (YET) going to the track..

i'd say just have it database driven with sortable column headings (i.e. year, model, color......LOL)

I find the 1/4 mile page to be more useful to those of us who go to the track quite often. It allows members to see improvements due to modifications that may relate to one'* own car, track conditions, climate, driving techniques, etc.

I personally "need" a 1/4 mile page to have an easy way to compare myself to other Bonnevilles so I get a sense of where I'm going with future modifications.

Yeah, and I can add a L36 SSE to the list. :( The trip to the track was a learning experience. I didn't even have to unplug the WSS'* -they weren't even there and that'* why my ABS and TC lights are on but no codes when scanned.
Anyhow, 84.88 mph in 16.536 on the first run and on the second run I managed a 16.458 @ 84.35. MPH is higher than Ol Blue, but the E.T.'* are slower (lots of wheel spin with no VSS sensors). TM really was pulling timing until around 35 and then the car really took off. If I'd gotten to the track sooner (or even gotten home from work sooner) I'd have done some track prep but since I got there so late and only had 30 minutes until they closed the staging lanes I just ran 3 laps (no cool down in between).
Anyhow I'll post more tomorrow -I am SOOO tired.

I think a divsion of pages for each motor designation would be great... I think Gtech times are alright aslong as it'* labeled as such

but I think that each car listed should have a pop up or another page that lists car and mods... or a car domain link etc

I think the LG3-3 page is gonna be lonely

I kinda already told Dr.Jay I was on the hunt for him and you willren playful hunt ofcourse , not serious "I'm GONNA SMOKE YOU!!! I HATE YOU" crap... I'll help anyone that wants/needs it and I'm pretty sure the favor extends this way too (in fact I've seen it) only good wholesome competition here

this winter/spring I get to play ... Which GN peices fit in here the class I'm attending right now has all the stuff I need to mic out the crank, cam, rods etc etc to see what fits and what can be made to fit without getting nuts.

No IM on the hunt for WillWren'* SSEi...but I think im a ways off from DrJay. I wanna race WillWren now while his trannys about to frag LOL!!! I do have some EVIL plans for the Bonne for this winter teardown session...can anyone say SER1 L67 intercooler??? Just some thoughts as ill have several months of time to get all the teardown measuring and fabrication done before summer is back and the Bonne gets put back into service. I do wonder if there would be any market for this for the 92-95 guys....any feedback would be appeciated as this is just a brainstorm now...but if possible should make 13s plausable for us SER1 guys.

::back on subject::
How bout we just use the site that we used to use for now till we get the new one set up??

I say post them all. Most of us are smart enough to wave the BS flag.
Now I may wave it at home in private. It'* a good way for me to judge the speed of my car with my present mods

Also, Will , no matter what you do here, SOMEBODY will get upset.
SO what if a guy want'* to risk his credibilty and post 10 seond times for his
N\A Se Bonny with 300k miles ?

When you read post its REAL easy to pick out the posers. I think it'* kinda funny
to see some of those numbers.

Those that know ... know. those that don't .. well ... thats how they learn.

i don't see it as a competition but as a measuring stick.

A lot of people on this forum have a good knowledge about how these cars perform, and what mods give them a certain range of times. It will be easy to distinguish the BS from the non BS.
