  • daveismissing: Factory HP specs were flywheel or chassis?
    August 02 2019, 10:11:11 AM
  • reality: AFAIK up until 1972 [i think] hp numbers were flywheel without accessories and after were with accessories. In the case of firebird\gto it was in the ''tune'' the numbers were not different. A carburetor adjustment fixed it tho

  • daveismissing: Just saw a pic of newish GM ECM - appears to aluminum case  & welded shut-wow

  • TexasT: I believe Joey hykel in the beater bomb took home the money.
    August 02 2019, 08:10:08 PM
  • wmsonta: I think a local guy won. His name is Kendal. Don't know his last name. Good guy. Probably runs 5.0 there. His old motor ran mid 4's. Flat black (primer?) Fox body.
    August 02 2019, 08:20:30 PM
  • wmsonta: Yeah, I should not make general statements. It depends on what tires he runs. His old motor went low to mid 5's in the 8.5 class.

  • good2win22: William is running at outlaw Armageddon.  He’s made a few good passes
    August 03 2019, 12:07:48 AM
  • Steve Wood: I'm glad to see him running well.  He is one of the nicest guys I have ever met.  I saw the one race on this link at 2hr and 15 minutes      [link]
    August 03 2019, 08:55:39 AM
  • Steve Wood: Saw the other one as well, one thing about William, he can leave on that flashlight!  His car does not hesitate when the hammer is dropped
    August 03 2019, 09:10:23 AM
  • Steve Wood: it is the 7th video from the top on the link that comes up above
    August 03 2019, 09:41:26 AM
  • nocooler: William's car is moving!
    August 03 2019, 10:33:56 AM
  • Steve Wood: William is on that flashlight for sure!

  • good2win22: Kirban’s shipping prices are outrageous
    August 04 2019, 07:12:01 PM
  • daveismissing: Kirban's location is rural and we all pay the price.
    August 04 2019, 07:25:01 PM
  • daveismissing: Too bad about Garry Wells, we are losing good ones
    August 04 2019, 07:26:01 PM
  • nocooler: :( -RIP Gary
    August 04 2019, 08:01:34 PM
  • Steve Wood: damn, RIP
    August 04 2019, 09:32:02 PM
  • gusszgs: Guys is there a trick to releasing the front clips on the interior trim above the windshield? Have to remove the headliner in my Ltd for access to moonroof that’s jammed
    August 05 2019, 04:21:42 PM
  • Forzfed: Sad to hear about Gary.  Any news on what happened?
    August 05 2019, 10:39:31 PM
  • nocooler: I didn’t see specifics in the thread at tb, but it said he had been fighting health issues for quite some time.

  • daveismissing: QOTD: "It will never be a car I would want to parallel park."
    August 12 2019, 08:48:38 AM
  • TexasT: [link] jump it to 9:51 and watch that slick do work.
    August 15 2019, 01:01:43 PM
  • nocooler: Billy’s truck is badass - wheelies on the street
    August 15 2019, 05:00:01 PM
  • xpander343: can I get a stock turbo off with engine in car without removing the J bracket that the turbo shield bolts to?
    August 15 2019, 07:26:00 PM
  • nocooler: Been there done that, it’s a million times easier just to remove the bracket and it’ll need adjusted when you put the turbo back on.
    August 15 2019, 07:53:24 PM
  • xpander343: thank you, I was thinking the last one I did, i took it off.  Just couldn't remember.
    August 15 2019, 08:06:27 PM
  • Steve Wood: Jason heard from Brad and he is doing better.  His vision is getting better but it may be another couple of months before they know how good it will be.  He is talking bikes and cars so it does sound better than it did.
    August 16 2019, 10:15:09 PM
  • wmsonta: excellent. We have another member who is thinking bracket racing.
