I went to Bandimere last night for grudge racing and ran an 11.466 ET at 122 mph. 60' time 1.718 0-60 dropped to 3.4 and 0-100 dropped to 7.7 DA last night for that run was 7177 ft. I also had over half a tank of gas and I'm not a small fellow.

My car is slightly modded
Cracked pcm
Diablo canned 93 octane tune
25% bend of 100 octane race fuel
Drag radials

The engine has a lot of untapped potential

Re: Meow...........

Barrett Jackson would be really fun.

Thinking I might rent something like this in a few weeks on my trip to Cali.

Re: Meow...........

Barrett Jackson was a blast! So many great cars to check out!

This '76 Petty Volare / Aspen kit car went for only $12,100. I was so wishing I had a bidder's card....




Other amazing cars.....








I've decided that my HC will be getting electric exhaust cut outs and "boom tube" side exhaust tips (nascar style) like these HC's had at the Dodge Thrill Ride. The sound is awesome and you could hear them from the strip:




Took lots of pics, but the one I didn't think to take........ was of the lines. There was NO waiting to do the Corvette Thrill Ride, but a 20-30 min wait in line to do the HC's and Viper...... lol.

The Vette's were base model 435 hp cars. While I could appreciate that they hold the turns like they're on rails compared to the HC's..... they offered little else for "Thrill" value. I'll keep my HC.

While in Vegas, we toured the Eldorado Gold Mine near Nelson, NV. The "ghost town" there is incredible if you're into rusty gold and oddities.....









While we were there, this curious group of Germans drove up in these 3 AMG rides along with a Mercedes SUV and a Dodge Ram...... all with Michigan Manufacturer plates. There's a rough job huh?

IIRC, from one of my sleepless nights surfing the web, those are illegal in Colorado.

It was fun reading all the regs. There was actually a section banning the old sparkplug in the tailpipe, flame makers.

Re: Meow...........

They are...... in the black and white sense under CRS 42-4-225.......

 "Every motor vehicle subject to registration and operated on a highway shall at all times be equipped with an adequate muffler in constant operation and properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise, and no such muffler or exhaust system shall be equipped with a cut-off, bypass, or similar device.  No person shall modify the exhaust system of a motor vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the motor of such vehicle above that emitted by the muffler originally installed on the vehicle, and such original muffler shall comply with all of the requirements of this section. Violation of this section constitutes a class B traffic infraction."



.......But so are lift kits........ a class 2 misdemeanor

Re: Meow...........

I rode in my buddies srt8 Cherokee with a supercharger on it a couple weekends ago. I was impressed with the big girl out of the hole. Makes me want to turbo a 4x or awd cheby.

I thought you just acquired a 5.3 Trailblazer for a daily driver? Supercharge that!

Totally forgot about that track day. I looked on line and the track's webpage.... not a whole lot about the event. What's it cost and is it both 1/4 strip and road course that day?

I'd have to get a helmet (something less huge than my MC helmet anyway) and - according to the rules, my car is to have a front tow point..... which it does not. Would that prevent me from running it?
