You seem to misunderstand.
I do not do things like those Guys on Trans Am Country Forum.
1 single guy I call Pro Tour made thousands Slow Nationwide.
Got on board and helped. Pro Tour Freaked.
Also helped the Chevy guys .
Guys there have a notion it must be Pontiac or Olds V8 powered.
LS Guys rebelled.
Got along Ok.

Pro Tour got hooked up with the Mods.
Changed my password.

I want to Race that Mother Fucker on the Streets.
My 70 TA.
Going to spank him.

One other old School guy left there that knows his Shit.
John Birdman.
Lab 14.

Well, and then there's the little fact that road racing requires an engine to be stable in its running for more than a few seconds or minutes. I know you know full well that a lot of what lives at the track can do so only because it is running for an extremely short time and if it were allowed to stay running for just 5 or 10 minutes would likely overheat. Or run out of gas. Or need more ice.


...or so I have heard. But you are the drag racer here so you know better than I. You cant have good braking force with 15" rims and huge M/t slicks. And you can't get good braking force out of any size brake rotor on a pizza cutter tire. And yet these are the drag pack to go after if we want max times. A fool will confuse drag racing with road racing. They are 2 different worlds and you know it. I know we sometimes get confused when we see the newer Corvette's performance but that is just how awesome Corvette is.

Its allways been a Road Race Engine in my TA.
10,000 MILE LIFESPAN WOT.
It's High Maintenance but 100% reliable.
JUST use it for Drag.
Street Race.
Not all marked 1/4 mile like on TV.

Interesting. well moving forward you very much need to specify when you are hating on this person pro tour and when you are hating on what I did to the 1969 GTO and the 1967 Corvette. I need to make sure that I am hating back on you in the right context.

I'd still love to see some pictures of your car going together. Maybe in a thread. I mean what is the point if we all can't take turns picking apart your every step and telling you all about the million ways we would have done it differently? And how dare you keep that from us?!
