You guys are making me feel really bad, it takes me 3 minutes just to back it out of the garage.

That has got to be the fastest a Buick has ever accelerated in the 1/8th mile. Usually they take a full 1/4 mile to get up to 20 mph. You can be proud of yourself Andy

Jeff, they do better if you put a Chevy under the hood.

Best NA 60' - 1.72
Best 60' on nitrous - 1.60

Best 1/4 NA - 12.58@108mph
Best on a 125 shot - 11.72@115mph

We're gonna see what she can do with more converter and a fresh transmission in the spring.

My setup, more "Pro-Touring" than drag...

17" drag radials, Nitto 555r, 275/40/17 (on the front too), Eibach lowering springs, KYB shocks, 427 small block, AFR heads, Comp "nitrous" grind cam (but NO nitrous, so might be hurting the combo), Edelbrock carb, $89 Summit HEI distrib/coil, RPM Airgap intake, TH400 ( 2200+ stall?), 3.70 gears (9" with a detroit locker).

Best pass was 12.34 at about 110 MPH... 1.7 60ft.

Hot lapping (4 runs in 15+ minutes, with best coming 3rd or 4th run)
and EXACTLY the way I drive on the street; Mixture of 89 and 91 octane pump gas from Costco, Out-of-the-Box Edelbrock carb, 17 psi in the drag radials, but still wanted to spin ( so launched about 1500-1800 RPM). damn short sidewalls... And functional factory A/C...

First runs ever on the lower pressure drag radials. I previously ran 36 psi in the tires; 1.9 60 ft, and 13.3s ETs, with 13.7 ETs with a Demon DP (really bad traction)


I have thought of getting some slicks and bolting the Double Pumper back on, just to see what she'll do... Or maybe a 125 HP shot of nitrous...

It's been a long time since I was behind the wheel at a dragstrip but I remember running a low 10.20 and about 121mph in my super stock '69 Camaro back in the early 70s. I had it almost to the national record when Chrysler dropped their Pro Stock sponserships and all those hemis flooded SS D & E. No way could I compete with them. Dick Landy dropped the SS/EA record from 10.20 to 9.55 the 1st time out!
