    legal local 1/8 mile races at Airport wins/ losses

    Wins: (all 1/8 mile runs)

    1. Green "Stage 3" (so the sticker said) Pontiac Grand Prix GTP (sounded mean, but wasn't very fast)- I won by 3 cars - It was turbo charged.
    2. Black M6 LS1 TA-- Won by a nose
    3. White 98 Auto TA convert - Won by 2 cars
    4. Red LS1 WS6- supposidly with Cam and stall (Auto ofcourse)-- I won by 1.5 cars or so. (This guy had a hood mounted tach)

    Losses: (all 1/8 mile runs)

    1 and 2: Red Auto TA with Loudmouth Catback and lid- lost by 2 (got me on the launch both times.
    3. Black Fox body Mustang GT with some heavy modifications- (sounded like a perfromance cam)-- lost by 2.5 maybe 3 cars.
    4. Grey Buick Turbo (Grand national I think)--- I lost by about 1.5 cars (got me on the launch and held it)


    I think that was it for me.. If I remember any more I will post'em up.

    PS: It was nice meeting everyone from LS1 who showed up.

    I like Grand Nationals too. RARELY see them. There is one that once in a blue moon comes to one of the car meets down here.

    Judging by that video, had it been a quarter-mile race the GTP would have gotten pounced really bad. And it appeared to be supercharged, not turbo.

    Yeah- If I remember correctly- I had a horrible launch-- and still passed him with ease-- looked more like 1.5- 2 cars- instead of three cars though---

    sorry-- I thought it was turbo-- because he had a BOV sound- (I was unaware that Superchargers had that same sound...


    cool stuff.

    Yeah, I felt bad for Brady. It was his first time drag racing too. He couldn't get the launch down to save himself. I just got lucky and was hooking well while most people weren't

    I crossed the line around mid 80s mph. (which is about on par for 1/8 mile run for a nearly stock TA)
