Default Talk about a boat...

I always thought the bonneville was a smaller, quicker version of the american land yacht. Well, tonight, I decided I'd get some REALLY rough estimates of 0-100 times...it falls nicely around 11 and 12 seconds. Without a cat. Moderate wheel spin. Sigh...I've got a lot of work ahead of me, I see :p

Do you mean 0-60?

0-100 in 12 is great

Well, yes and no, Comfy. I'm Canadian. I didn't much feel like trying to time 0-96 in my car, I let 4 km/h go.

lol, hey, it'* old! let it be. I'm still re-breaking in the engine, the poor thing hasn't been driven in well over 4 years. And it was in overdrive. And all those other excuses that really don't help my cause.

I've got a Gtech meter..... if you wanna come to NS sometime we can make a few runs.

Also the next 1/4 mile is July 9th/10th in Greenfield..... if would be good to get some base #* before you start modding to see the changes.
