alright guys. so one of the guys i graduated w/ has had his car for a while now and we finally got around to racing after talking about it for 2 years strait.
i had the video camera in the car for someone to tape, but i was too excited before i could get it out. anyway, out in the boonies of YAKIMA...3/4 straight road. we line up. there is a painted 1/4 mile ect. all this stuff. only one house on the road too. its good to be safe
. so my friend has a 1967 pontiac le mans (350, headers, k&n filter, and electronic ignition) this thing has sooo much power. i forgot to add, it is a 4 speed so thats cool. so back to the story. we both go and we are dead even off the line....im assuming he is smoking his tires, and i cant even hear my exhaust because his car is so loud. 2nd gear i start to pull, and the same w/ 3rd. i cross the 1/4 at about 95mph and then shift into 4th....im not sure if hes letting off, but at the end of third, i was about a car length ahead.
. it was a very good race. we went again from a rolling start; same result. so i think it comes down to my gearing for the higher speeds because he has to have 300+ hp. i hope you enjoyed this story. another one of my friends has a 1972 nova i have yet to race. him and i did a 1/4 separatly w/ a passanger timing, i ran a 15.07 and he got a 15.17. he just got a new carberator and intake manifold so i think im effed now. ill try to get some pics or a vid next time. later guys!!!
