LT1 Formula the latest victim
Not the greatest kill, but a kill just the same. I went up to get some beer at the local Racetrac gas station. On the way home there is a red Formula, LT1 vintage, that passes me. I move over and get behind him because I have to turn at the next light. Then light turns red. Nobody beside him. Oh hell. So I am compelled to pull up beside him. Imature I know, but what the hell. I could have sworn his windows were down before, but now they are up. I look around to make sure Johnny Law is not hiding somewhere. I take off normal waiting to see him get on it then I see his nose come up. I am allready in second so I just floor it. I shift into third and tear the Nittos a bit. I look and he is pretty much gone way back there. Probably 10 cars or so. Then he turned off into a deserted parking lot. Not really sure why. I turned at the next light and come home.
Like I said, not much of a kill but I dont get out much in the Z, so a kill is still a kill.http://www.fquick.com/mnypitZ

nice kill! it should have been closer though... are you stock? maybe his car isnt in the best shape, you would have won either way but it would have been a better race.

Yeah, its pretty fast I guess. It is kinda running like shit right now though. I think I need some new O2s. I actually had a Dodge Charger Hemi almost hang with me yesterday. Well he was within 3 car lengths anyway. I was kinda embarrassed to be honest. This 4 door family car looking ugly ass Chrysler product almost hung with me.

tune means everythhing once you start making drastic changes like that good luck with it i'm sure it'll be sick when you get a proper tune!

I got an email from my tuner guy today. He said after analyzing my logs it looks like my O2s are sluggish especially at idle causing my problems, so maybe a new set will fix it. The tune was pretty good except with the a/c on. I didnt have a belt on it when he tuned it. Now thats fixed, so maybe some new O2s and a quick a/c retune will fix it.
Wish me luck.
