just got back from the track... (GM warning)

--- not mustang related, so I know I won't get much response but I'm sharing anyway

Test and tune today until 4:30 at numidia dragway... 95% of our school's motorsport club went. I brought the buick out to play, haven't run it since I did the ported blower/exhaust and 5* bump in timing, but numidia lacks serious track prep, and its well above sea level (my car usually runs in Atco, NJ)

Surprised a lot of people, and made it in the top 5 in the club..

Yeah... and only two other guys in the top 5 bought their car without mommy's or daddy's money (oldsmobile 442 and a built 95 LT1.. LT1 guy bought his car built though, did very little on his own...)

So I'm 4th overvall, but seeing as only one or two of the club members knew about the car.. (I didn't even have the hood popped haha) I surprised a hell of a lot of people...

My first race, I lined up against an S2000, not sure on the year I never asked the guy and he avoided me after the race heh.. he ran a 14.48@97 to my 14.061 @ 100.28 Woot, first time breaking 100 in the buick haha, had a 2.281 60' on that one, could be better...

Second race lined up against the 5th place neon SRT-4, pumpkin orange...
staged to 1600 RPMs, tree went green, I rolled into it and by the count of 3 had it floored, no wheel spin... SRT-4 was next to me for a split second then I just pulled on him from there (maybe he missed a shift? I dunno this was his fastest run of the night as far as I know) -- he ran a 13.922@101 - I cut a 2.09 60' and ran a 13.828@100.9

My third and final race lined up against the olds 442, that car sounded sick, and he owned me bottom and top end, he ran a 12.9@112 that run, I don't think it was his best of the night -- I ran a 13.833 (SO CLOSE to my other one haha) @101.12 on a 2.14 60'

CLIFF NOTES

Finally tried my new mods at the track, and ended having one of the quickest cars at school, unfortunately now they know it haha...

the other fastest car was an evo, there was a handful of WRXs and evos but they must have been poorly driven, mostly it was rice... one 97 cobra, but it only ran a 14 flat..

---
***edit
If i'd had my rustang I woulda had the second "fastest" car today (the LT1 ran 10s on nitrous 11.8s on motor)

That's not bad, at all. You're just a few .10's off of the TA's best time.

Yours was basically stock, though... and you would do better in the 1/4 overall - Even back when I had fewer mods I would have guys with LS1s looking over at me near the 1/8th mile with a look on their faces... then after that they'd proceed to own me.. My latest mods were geared towards top end/highway performance as my car had none... so far I'm pleased..

I can see that. My 1/8th mile mph was in the 84-85 range. It would have been opening up the gap pretty good by end of the 1/8th...that's the end of the races 'round here, though.
