      Did you hold him off for the 1/2 mile?

      Your car is hooked-up! fantastic – nice work.

      I’d be afraid that they are gonna stop inviting you to these parties if you keep showing everyone up :mrgreen: 😆

      The Tiger won by about .5 mph . It was a cool day ( 60s) and the turbo and supercharged cars were running very well . The Hellcats were 6-7 mph faster than normal .

      Just curious now that you mentioned "turbocharged cars"… do any turbo-Buick powered cars ever show up at these types of events?

      No turbo Buick cars . Probably 90% of the cars are less than 10 yrs. old.

      Thanks.

      I would think that a "stock" version would run out of motor/rpm or hit governor, while a modded one would get kinda scary (unless some aero/suspension work).
      This sort of subject (top speed or 1/2 mile event) has come up a couple of times recently on [non-Sunbeam :mrgreen: ] forum that I’m on… made me wonder.
