    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.

    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.

    Not quite stock here. I have a couple things. Heads, cam, LTs ORY, catback, lid, LS6 intake, Nitto DRs, well you get the idea. Not quite tuned right yet though.

    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.

    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.
