I think your car needs to go on a diet.

Geez, 3800lbs strip of the "pimp spec gear" and get that sucker into the 12'*.

Had A look at your mod list though, nice ride.

Hows this... ( I don't race BTW )
Aww that'* no fun, racings fun! Thanks for the weights.

My Commodore is what we call an Executive which means its a base model but if it was a Calais then it would be alot heavier because they're power everything and crushed velvet seats (pimp spec ).

I'll be honest, I run no power steering, no air conditioning, no radio, but hey I like the sound of the engine anyway.

[/quote]My VN Commodore (1989 model so it'* the older engine, not the series-I) runs 14.05 at 96mph naturally aspirated. It'* an auto and the diff ratio is 3.45:1 and that time was run on full street tyres and with full interior and exhaust. There are actually two quicker guys than me, one runs a 4.3-litre series-I stroker (13.6 at 102mph), the other one runs 3.9 gears and a manual (13.8 at 99mph).

What kind of times are you guys getting naturally aspirated?[/quote]


1/4 mile???? I thought you guys measured everything in kilometers!!!
Sweet next you will sell gas by the gallon, and measure things in inches!!!!

Despite the fact that we have the metric system, we still race over a 1/4-mile.

I think of alot of things in inches, like rod length, bore size, and the length of my shlong.

But we still buy fuel per the litre ($1.07/litre for the last tank of 98 octane :( ) and our speed are still in KPH (110KPH national limit, except for Northern Territory which has an unlimited open road limit )

Our time cards have the ET, MPH and then KPH for the young guys who don't know a centimetre from an inch, and still think that WRX'* are the fastest thing on the road. Oh yeah, we've had those bloody things here since 1994, the favorite of ramraiders everywhere.
