Oh no way!That was you with the Bonne? I was there with my friend Paul with the GTP, im not sure if we exchanged names, im Matt.

Your car pulls pretty good I watched a few of your runs. If you want some better 60' times you should consider getting a tighter suspension system, as your car squats really hard for the first 60'. Beautiful car tho!

How about those spring clamps, but instead of clamping them together turn them around to keep space between a couple loops. I have a couple pairs around here and had been considering doing that at the track.

like putting them in the back? I would be wary of doing that, if you have ever seen those suckers fly off you know they are dangerous. They arnt made to do that.

You were with Paul from Ottawa??? I'm not sure if we met Matt, if not I'll look forward to next time.

I don't doubt the rear squats, I was more interested in seeing how it would do in street trim but maybe next time I'll try some rubber spring blocks.

Thanks for the complement on the car, unfortunately someone put a 4 " scrape in the driver'* door yesterday

Cheers,

Thats just complete disrespect. I hope one of these times one of us finds the people who do this B.*

And holy crap you said 14.6???????

With just CAI and 3.5" pulley I think that may be one of the fastest per-mod Bonnevilles around...........
