Thats incredible. you ran a 15.6 @88mph?!? God da*m, I wish my 93 L27 could break 17'*. What , did you get the rockers offered by DR. Jay? If so i'll tell my dad. He always complains about how slow it is compaired to his old 89' Grand Marquis ( a 18 second car). It even has a FULL CIA. Dam* that 3.06 axle makes a 2 second difference over a 2.84, thats amazing!

You missed the heat earlier. We're trying to figure out all the inconsistencies. That time you mention isn't really possible. Well, not PROBABLE at least. That'* why he posted it.

Pat, I don't have time right now, but Greyhare and I will team up on this tomorrow and see if we can find some anomolies between timing splits on each run.

Sorry. I haven't been around much. Its just that the 2.83 geared 05' Buick Le Sabre could absolutly WASTE my old 2.84 geared 93' Ser 1. A 15.6 Ser 1 just doesn't seem plausable without: CIA, exaust, and rockers at LEAST. Even with a CIA in the 93', the Ser 2 LeSabre with even whimpier gearing could destroy it in the quarter.

Bil and Greyhare.. any info coming out of the equation yet?

last thing I'd want is for Pat to come to NEBF with this car and possible beat my S2 SC in a race.
