Hey, chuggin' along. Just finished a big overhaul on my turbo build after 12yrs.

@  Nateteo : (12 April 2021 - 05:56 PM)

literally, the last time I logged in was 3 years ago hows everybody doing

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 04:43 PM)

Ya, they do open bracket at GS Nationals. I may go if I'm free, just to attend, even if there's no cage, yet.

@  Marchi1 : (12 April 2021 - 01:32 PM)

I am taking the SC car.I am sure it is a big event as it is in Bowling Green, KY so yeah will need to be fully copliant, but I think there is a bracket class. God I hope so

@  dezldave961 : (08 April 2021 - 01:50 PM)

*S&W Racecars cage for 95-99 Monte... I'd actually fit the xTSM class, aside from not being a RWD, if I swapped the Air-Air I/C back in. Probably wouldn't be competitive just yet, but I'd like to see them squirm.

@  dezldave961 : (08 April 2021 - 01:48 PM)

My only hesitation is that it's a big "gate-keeper" club, from my year of monitoring their forum. I might show up for fun to T&T in an open class, if I have a cage by then (S&S 90's W-body one when I get time).

@  dezldave961 : (07 April 2021 - 08:12 PM)

Oh, is the TurboBuick thing om, again? That's what I initially started my build overhaul for last year. Might be able to get out there, finally.

@  Marchi1 : (07 April 2021 - 02:53 PM)

Dave there is a Buick only event in May in Bowling Green...

@  dezldave961 : (04 April 2021 - 02:51 PM)

For launching in street trim with a s/c, you can pre-load just a bit at staging, then roll from that point to full throttle over ~1-2sec as traction permits. The tires will screech some at a track, but a 1.9-2.1 is the good typical range for most folks, with occasional freaks getting 1.8-1.9 success (my best on 2nd-hand Nitto 555R's was maybe mid-1.9's with my GenV/2.7/XP/3.29 setup at Norwalk).

@  dezldave961 : (03 April 2021 - 06:11 PM)

You should be able to modulate the throttle a bit better to get at least a 2.0 with practice. The Mustang is probably about all that can get, they're not too impressive without work.

@  ejguillot : (02 April 2021 - 01:12 PM)

I wasn't the only one having problems launching, There was a 2015 Mustang 5.0 on drag radials whose best time was a 12.9 after 3 tries or so.

@  ejguillot : (02 April 2021 - 01:09 PM)

Good news was nothing broke, and no KR on a 2.8" pulley. Will be revising timing tables too.

@  ejguillot : (02 April 2021 - 01:08 PM)

The first runs were so so. 13.5@104, couldn't launch for shit! 2.4 60' was the best I got. Then I look things over and realize my front shocks are all worn out. Ordered some KYB's from Rockauto on sale ($70 shipped), will be installing those and see what I can do next time.

@  dezldave961 : (01 April 2021 - 11:38 AM)

Cool. I may try BMP eventually, based on prep shown in Cleetus videos. Might live in the area again soon, too.

@  Marchi1 : (25 March 2021 - 03:11 PM)

The silver car will be hitting the track in May...Should see better numbers than the last pass 6 years ago

@  Marchi1 : (25 March 2021 - 03:11 PM)

Waiting for numbers.....

@  ejguillot : (25 March 2021 - 01:47 PM)

Hi all, finally taking my project GS to Bradenton Motorsports Park for it's maiden 1/4 mile run.

@  dezldave961 : (22 March 2021 - 01:21 PM)

Ya... I'm having fun working on mine, but mostly going to hit events for all cars. The big 3800 ones from ClubGP days are gone, aside from one in Detroit.
