Default Day at Pittsburgh Raceway Park

I had a great time at the track today. First off, we got 10 runs in. On my first two runs(both 15.3'*), i was running stock tire pressure. After talking to a guy with a 13.2 sec GS, I lowered my pressure to 24psi. I was astonished to run a 14.904, all stock with full stereo and my fat 270lb *** behind the wheel!! I was also trapping at 94.5mph very consistantly. I may have been able to break 14.8-7 but wheelhop owns me. I am very happy with those slips and I think I can go mod free, well at least until next season!!!

very sweet times, sounds like you met joe demonte . lol his car has ZZP and intense racing all over the drivetrain. he is a very nice guy, and if you need to know anything about thermal tech. ask him, he is an infra-red instructor and has a video cam that he uses for thermal temps from his SC. he has an LS1 TB, MAF, 3" down pipe, intense LSD, specially programmed pcm, 42.5# injectors, and a whole lot more on the super sleeper.
great times for a stock bonneville series 2.
wish i could have went today, but i need to get my fuel system taken care of first. lean is no fun at all

Impressive times there. Congrats, how was traction? What where your 60ft times?
The cold weather does make our cars run great.
