McFLY! Get him, Kazuki!

Actually, didn't someone swap in an L67 to an older Bonnie already? And we also have a Turbo running as well in that generation.

Well, I took my 1994 SLE to the track back in September, and ran a 16.531 @ 83.5. That was with a few mods and having the car somewhat stripped down.
A big sidenote is that I didn't go over 1/2 throttle after the first 60 feet, as the fuel pump was on it'* way out the door and the farther down the track I got the more I had to let up so it wouldn't die out. Finally let up with over 300 feet to go and was on the brakes through the traps.
On the 95 SE stats, the 7.1 0-60 and the 15.1 1/4 those have got to be for a L67 SE. My friend has a bone stock 1995 SE and I raced him back when I had my 1992 SE (mods to 92 were 180* t-stat, CAI, NGK TR55 plugs, and 245/50/ZR18 Toyo'* on Lexani Synergy'*). From a dead stop I'd take him up until about 55-60 (in the 92 that is) and he'd go by, but just inching by, and by the time we got to about where it'd have been 1/4 mile he'd be ahead by about 1-1/2 to 2 car lengths. My 1992 was G-teched @ around 15.9, so I doubt he was faster than 15.7'*, and that was when he had about 85,000 miles on the drivetrain.

I would agree the 95SE numbers are a bit optomistic. The weight advantage shouldn't make THAT much of a difference, but it does help.

I still remember how my 95SE felt.. and that thing was damn peppy.. and stock too. That L36 was fun while it lasted... however, the L67 is one beautiful peice of machinery.

My curb weight for my regal is 3300 lbs. How come my car feels so slow then? It only has 150,000 km on it. I cant see my car ever running under 16, unless I ran nitrous. Im sure allmach is only running low 15'* on the juice....
