It is crazy how slow the altitude makes you go..

about 9 or 10 years ago I went to Bandimere in my stock 2000 Hyundai Tiburon and ran a 17.x -- Which I was told wasn't too bad for a stock 4 cylinder with 140 hp.

Sure, I can send you the pics, but you have to come clean with your G8 first. ;> How you run that fast does not make sense.... PM me your e-mail, and I'll send you pictures. I'm not sure how I can post them any bigger as I uploaded them full size to photobucket and linked the pics from there.

BTW, did you ever run your G8 before the mods?

Those mods should put him right with the GXPs stock, which is where he is. Big part of it is the trans settings in the tune.

You managed to get pics of me actually winning . That poor Cobalt? did not stand a chance on my second best run of the day...but one I ran another time got me by 0.5 sec. The Firebird really need tires so he can launch...a ~3200lb car with a big block should rape me out of the hole, at least until I get a tune and a stall....being stuck at 1200rpm stall sucks.

Would have liked to get pics/vids of the first run of the day (very first run of the day...I was first to tech and got straight into line... me and Jackie in a pair of SBM GXP's, she got me by a couple lengths. We also got to line up for the last run of our day, and I treed her .122 to .208, and she couldn't quite walk around me...win to me by 0.0243. Also happened to be my best ET of 14.240 @ 100.11 on a 2.251 60ft. My best trap was 100.80, best 60ft was 2.213, and best R/T was .012 backed up by a .014 and a couple .03x and a .075, with a .307 worst.

Gone but not forgotten:

I think he is running where a GXP would run with a CAI and tune. .2 quicker than a stock GXP is way faster than he should be running.

My G8 ran 14.795 stock, and 14.658 after the CAI, tune, and axle back. For me to run a 14 flat, I would need a cam and headers. Granted, I may weigh a couple pounds more than nstar8, but even with my dog driving my car and helium in my tires, I'm not running better than a 14.5.

Anyway, I'm proud that the GT beat the GXP's with only minor modifications. You go brother!

p.s. Now that I think about it, I bet he has one of those Tornado vortex intake gadgets. That would explain the numbers.

Hey all -- Sorry for the delay. Had to make an unexpected trip to Wisconsin, Vince's grandfather passed away unexpectedly. I will play with the video camera & also get with the others that were there with vid's and get them posted ASAP.

Thanks to all those that showed up! Had a great time. Hopefully the weather will be good for the first Club Clash event this week -- See y'all on Friday!

Til then! Take it easy! JLAsti
