this should be fun. i got challenged by my good friend mike. he's got an awesome z28. we always like to park our cars next to each other at car shows. i think our cars look great next to each other. but i sure would appreciate everyones vote. but vote for the one you like the best. i would like to win but i would be just as happy if mike won too.
well i'm a couple of weeks late on bloging about this, but i haven't really had alot of time. but anyways i went to the bristol dragstrip on the 3rd of july to try and see if i could meet my goal of getting my car in the high 13's. well at first it seemed that that night was gonna be the night. it was still daylight when i took it down the 1st time, i run a 14.2. i was pretty excited about that run, then i waited for a bit and took it down again (it was still daylight just a little after 7pm) i got a 14.2 again. i was really excited, i've usually been running a 14.5 in the daylight so i just knew my chances of getting in the high 13's was really good. so it got dark, i got in line, get to the tree, last yellow light i gun it too hard have some traction trouble that causes the traction control to almost kill my engine, so i don't get a good time a 14.6 as a matter of fact OUCH!!!!! so i'm not happy with myself at all. so i get back in line, my last run for the night, so now i'm settin at the tree, last yellow light i don't gun it as hard and i'm pretty satisfied with the take off. i get my time slip and to my surprise another 14.6! now i know there is nothing wrong with the car cause it's still running great. but i'm not giving up on my goal. i'll just blame it on driver error, i goofed up somewhere.
Last night I went to the Bristo drag strip for the Thurs. night street fights. I was wanting to accomplish 2 things, 1-to get in the high 13's in the 1/4, 2-to make it to 100mph in the 1/4. Well I didn't make it in the 13's :( I made it in 14.030, darn! so close! But I did make it to 100mph, 102.25 as a matter of fact! So i was well pleased. I have come from a 14.65 to a 14.030 and all that is done to the car is flow master exhaust kit, slp cold air induction kit, k&n air filter & oil filter, bosch platinum +4 plugs & bosch wires, and I use castrol full synthetic oil. In my opinion that ain't to darn bad. I have also greatly improved my reaction time too, I've come from over a sec. (bad connection in the wires between my brain and foot, lol) to a .16. Yep, I'm very satisfied.
