Same. While having my GTP from 02-14, I built it for a buddy in 09 and bought it from him in 16. Going all out now while we're still on partial shutdown. Great way to pass the time.

Welcome back earth1. I'm still sticking by my project regal, even if it has been a garage queen for the last couple of years.

@  earth1 : (18 November 2020 - 03:27 PM)

I want to thank those who run this site for their dedication and for keeping this site going through the years. To have a really good Regal GS, one has to have an extraordinary level of dedication to the car that includes a long-term commitment to it, and not just a passing fancy. Similarly, to the people that keep this site going through the years had to have a similar level of dedication and commitment to keeping it going. I just want to tip my hat, pay my sincere respect to this level of commitment, and say thank you. I will try to contribute what I can. I know that these cars are 20+ years old now and a lot of people have moved on from them, but I want to be counted as one of the ones that stuck with them for the long-term. I hope to see others that love their Regals be active here in this site, and for the Regal community to support each other. Count me in.

I finally remembered my password and can get logged in. I have missed posting to this forum. Lots of things to add here from my own Regal GSE project.

@  ejguillot : (20 October 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Well, welcome back!

@  de.regal : (04 October 2020 - 10:50 PM)

Still lurk every day

@  tpivette : (03 October 2020 - 02:32 AM)

Sucks these forums are as vacant as they are... oh well, there's still the faithful like us!

@  kevandkaye : (27 September 2020 - 02:40 AM)

Yet still, we lurk. :o

@  ejguillot : (27 September 2020 - 01:08 AM)

Yeah, Facebook took over and killed forums.

@  dezldave961 : (26 September 2020 - 03:24 AM)

Ya, most of the original wave of active members have changed vehicles to something (probably) less mod-friendly, with the occasional person in an LS or Hemi that they do some bolt-ons to. Kinda sad that forums faded.

@  ejguillot : (23 September 2020 - 09:02 PM)

Finally updated my signature to match my current Buick.

@  ejguillot : (10 September 2020 - 03:20 AM)

Things are terminally quiet around here...

@  dezldave961 : (29 July 2020 - 04:06 AM)

Just became a moderator on 3800Pro, so that's fun. I know it's gone thru a couple hands since Intense got sold, then that guy sold the forum. Not sure what that'll help, but it's something.

@  ejguillot : (26 July 2020 - 02:47 AM)

Glad to hear it. Would be a tragedy for us remaining owners to lose the knowledge in these forums.

@  dezldave961 : (12 July 2020 - 01:55 AM)

Hosted a buddy and his family for cookout... Ya, not alot on forums lately. Just keeping the lights on.

Don't count on it. Next they are going to take away your right to peaceably assemble. I'm not a conspiracy black helicopter guy, this has my attention. Sorry, I know this is a car site.

This looks interesting!  I should have one of these setups (MP112 or turbo) dropped back in the Regal by then, and need an excuse to start renting camper trailers before I buy one.  About 9hrs away, so definite potential.

 

Edit - waiting for confirmation email from TurboBuick.com (checking junk folder, too), so I can see if any version of my 2004 GS is eligible to race in a Buick class, or if they want to keep it to just that very specific criteria.  Hopeing they see I'm not showing up in a Mustang trying to elbow in on the Buick fun, but actually want to have fun alongside the predecessors to this setup.

Yes any Buick or Buick powered can race. The heads up classes we don't fit into unless your turbo then there is a possibility I would have to look at the classes again.  There are three bracket classes depends on fast you are as to which one you belong in. B1  11.49 and faster.  B2 11.50-13.49 and B3 13.50 and slower.

 

For the heads up classes check out www.gsnationals.com/race

Should be two other 3800 cars show up besides myself. So far the event is still on.

 

It is a 12 hour haul for me from TX.  I ran in B2 class the last two years.

They got back to me on email and were excited to hear interest from another type of Buick owner.  I won't push the issue to get in heads-up classes as a first-timer, but hopefully showing up earns me some sway later, and I can cash in on that for future events.

 

I'll probably squeak into B1 with the turbo setup, but my consistency could pay off if I don't load up for maximum launching.  I'll have to re-read the dial-in rules, because I will want to TnT for some best time attempts, too.

You can run anything you want during time trials it doesn't matter. When the Elims start in the bracket classes you put whatever dial on you want. B1 11.50 and faster, your DI has to be at least 11.50 or faster. You do have to stay within the bracket you are racing in.

That's what I use to race, the brackets and I won a lot of money and prizes in the 2000s.   It comes down to the best driver, not the quickest car.   That's what I love about bracket racing, you can beat a Dodge Demon with a minivan.   You have to be consistent with all of your runs.   That's the key to winning the brackets.
