Postby bill1978v8 » Sat May 10, 2008 7:33 pm

Well I had a very good day at the flashlight drags at the Zelienople airport. The car ran great and I got to race 13 times :shock: I beat thirteen cars too! :lol: Here is a list:

Monte Carlo Z34 - it was my first run
2006 Brazen GTO
mid 80's malibu with a built 350
2002 Camaro 408 Twin turbo he spun really bad and blew past me after the finish going about 30 mph faster
2006 Black GTO
2006 Gray GTO
2007 Shelby GT500 - not real impressed
1992 Vette 383 stroker 6 speed
WRX subaru built with bigger turbo
WRX STI built with everything but a bigger turbo
Dodge Cummins turbo - don't laugh it's built and fast!
mitsubishi eclipse turbo AWD
1967 SS Camaro with built 396

I had a lot of fun and the car ran great. Can't ask for much more!! :D

BIll

Here is a vid I found, I'm in it three times. It's 54 minutes long and takes a while to load but it's all I could find of me racing.
