Mmmm. I'm a total lamer.

18 second 1/4 mile. I suppose that's okay for a 2.73 gear ratio. I could change it out for a better time but I also enjoy 21 miles a gallon.

21 mpg sounds a little low for a 2.73 RAR. Are you driving mostly highway?

Is it? It is a 351 afterall.

Most of my driving is mainly highway yes, but sometimes I have to use ethenol blends because it's all I can find sometimes and it throws my mileage out the window.

Re: Mmmm. I'm a total lamer.

How the Hell are you getting 20+ out of a 351?!
Is that thing all stock? That may not be the best time in the world, but hey- at least you're getting out there to see what it can do!

Re: Mmmm. I'm a total lamer.

I have a nifty little vaccuum gauge so I know when I'm pushing too hard, I keep it around 60 on the highway which is a little slower than the posted speed, but if it means saving a little bit of gas and spending more time I'm all for it. Gas jumped by alot this last day to $1.07 a litre. I hardly drive it anymore which is a little depressing. I often ride my bike to work instead since I'm so close.

But yes, it's completely stock except for the carburator which I replaced so I'm not using CFI. It was fun though. No one said anything about it for there have been worse things on that track.

Re: Mmmm. I'm a total lamer.

Yeah. They get uppity because they have to wear a helmet and wait in line and all that. I mean when you're a ricer who's even got the time for a helmet? First aid? Pffft. Nah. I'm a ricer and I'm an awesome driver. Ignore the fact my aftermarket bumper is all banged up from being able to tell when there's a parking curb in front of me because my reclined "racing seats" don't leave me much to look out of from my windshield.

BAH!

I had a great time. 4 runs all nearing the same times. My friend in that GTA thought it was a hoot.
