Just keeping the candle lit, as I mentioned on my only remaining local ClubGP chapter of the 3-4 I was very active on in my 20's

@  Marchi1 : (15 April 2021 - 07:00 PM)

nope...just us old timers

@  WildGS : (15 April 2021 - 03:56 AM)

are people still here?

@  dezldave961 : (12 April 2021 - 09:46 PM)

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.

Hey, Larry.  I checked the schedule on the Summit Motorsports Park website a while ago and then again today.  So far there is no mention of Buick Race Day.  Hopefully Paul or Roberta has some info.

 

Also, not sure if this is relevant.  The BPG forum lists "The Buick/Olds/Cadillac Race/Show Nationals" on July 24???

Ya Larry, I believe it's cancelled and moved to ^^^ this^^^.  Read something about it a while back.  Marchi usually has a grip on this and he's not on here very much anymore and he's the one who pointed us to the W-Body meet.

I'll call Toth Buick, the main event sponsor, and see if it's scheduled. They are local for me.

OK..so Toth said there is no longer a "Buick Race Days" event....I'm guessing the race event for Buicks at Norwalk will be "The Buick/Olds/Cadillac Race/Show Nationals" on the 24th of July, as far as Regal Madness, i'm guessing the 3800(GXP) meet in June will be the spot for that event.

That sounds a lot like the Pontiac Oakland GMC show back home to me. it took a couple year break and came back under new management and is now a better event. has drag and road course races as well as the show

Anyone think about going to Norwalk???? Probably won't rain out as July is "Hot as Hell" in Ohio, unlike April - June when it rains every other day. That's when they would typically schedule Buick Race Days.

3800 Gathering is going to be the place to meet in late June. June 25th in Mt. Pleasant MI if  I remember right. Been going on for 3-4 years now and this year is supposed to be the biggest, Its unfortunate I missed the boat on such an awesome event; Regal Madness.

Thanks Derrick. It did go well. One foot down and one to go once this one heals. Most have heard of carpal tunnel condition in the hands. This is tarsal tunnel in both feet. Damn.
