I noticed that your Bonnie was tucked away at the last meetup. Glad to see that it'* doing well and free of setbacks. I'm jealous of that shine, but I'll have mine back once the street sweepers clean the roads come spring.

Same here. I didn't get to ride, but he did sit me down and ask me to point out everything modded. I didn't have the heart to tell him that I'd seen most of his mods in the how-to section.

Though I did get a ride in the Regal.

Ok, Mr Bell..you got it.

I sandbagged pretty badly to get the 13.2, ... technically 12'* were possible that night. Since then..I've added plenty of mods.

To give you guys an idea of the level the car is at, Todd Allen of Intense-Racing has this same setup, except he runs 3.69 gears instead of 3.29'* as I do. He consistently had trouble with traction and kept pulling off 12'* almost 11.99. If I get it tuned in and can learn how to drive, 12 should be attainable because the 97 is lighter than the 2000.

I'm planning on 12'* in the spring.
I remember the good old days when it was "just" a boosted Bonne
