    went Delmar US13 dragway

    Well not a ls1 but Ill give ya a run down on my runs with the typhoon. First lets just start calling me captain slow.... I even went around the burnout box the first run and backed up alittle to clean the tires and forgot i had in reverse and stomped on her a little embarrasing but funny to say the least. can you say dumbass?

    r/t .224
    60. 1.9

    mph 81.4
    1/4 13.3
    mph 100.8

    They eventually made us race the 1/8 because of the wind. It was a steady 30mph headwind. maybe 2 tenths with the wind and get the 60 down and maybe a 12 sec truck. I gotta figure out how the previous owners were runnin high 7's in the 8th. I did have alot of people in the staging lane ask me if it was a real typhoon, what the heck was it, and did it have a 350 in it! I gotta figure out how to launch this thing and get my 60ft down to the 1.7. It was fun for the first time running this thing. now all i need to do is put the h/c package i have sitting in the garage on.

    Are you talking about one of these???



    I got questions all the time, people didn't know what it was, or wondering what just murdered them at the stop light

    Mine was bone stock down to the paper filter with 30K original miles. Only made one pass and got booted for no helmet, I honestly didn't think it would crack the 13's. It was a very deceiving truck.
    Went 13.52 at 99 mph with a 1.72 60 foot time at a 3200 ft DA no less.

    I sold it about 4 years back. Someone made a silly offer and I let it go

    Yep, wheels aren't going to help.

    I used to leave on about 8lbs. according to the factory gauge. Seemed to be the sweet spot for it. It would chirp and go.

    Ya, they can be made to MPH with mods. In stock form they make a ton of grunt and being awd, they use it well.
    If I remember right, mine shifted at only 4,500 rpms at wot.
