Hang around here long enough and we'll convert you to the saying "There's no substitute for cubic inches" and of course 302 isn't enough!

You were lucky, it must have been a mild Five One to only pull a flat 14. Or the driver didnt know how to handle it.

However, nothing sucks more than getting hosed in your V8, by a four cylinder.

Looks like he was hosing you by quite a bit before the 60 foot mark. Did your time start from your car leaving the line or does it include your reaction time? Just interested is all. :s2:

Hell no, I was in my old car, the Fairmont (EB) and I had a race on-the-fly with a Honda Integra Type R. The little asshole was pulling on every gearchange.

I guess it wasnt really a legit race. From a standing start it may have been different, but that rice burner kinda got up and boogied.

Bet he wont race me now though.:s6:

PS - I am told that after a few mods the old Fairmont hammers now
