Congrats to Stevex82 for breaking into the 12's last night. Look for better times from him in the near future.


I also want to add that Steve's car is the perfect example to everyone that says a TC can't be fast and still driveable. He drove the car over 100 miles to the track, swapped tires, raised boost and ran in the 12's. He also said he puts over 400 miles on this car per week in daily commuting. Stock suspension and gearing. He stated that he drove 110 miles to the track last night and only used 4 gallons of gas. How is that for fast and driveable.
NO TC and NO headaches.

Great Job Steve. Brian Larkin & I need to hook up on day with you to shoot the poop. I know you go to Acto quite a bit so maybe that would be a good place to meet. Once again, Congrates on getting into the 12's.

Ehhhh, as tempting as it is, I dunno about 11's. I'm barely trusting the engine as it is and am afraid that the mph / hp needed to go even an 11.9 might just break the camel's back. Don't quote me on this...but if I can get the car into the 12.4-12.6 range, I think I'll leave it at that until after graduation and getting a real job so I can afford to rebuild things as they start breaking on me.
