Just talked to Jim...you ready

Made only one soft hit a on it quite a while back with only 5 pounds of boost and went in the 7's at 175..so add another 900 hp with 20 -22 lbs and it should get it. I had to take a break for a few years.
Not bad for junk

Thatís the one thing I didnít ask him. I did how ever asked him why he wasnít around on the boards anymore. Said he was sick of all the BS and has no interest. Told me a few funny stories.

I got videos from the Pontiac races they had at Island Dragway. Jim was racing an Astre. This had to be 1994-1995.

I’ve been to Island Dragway, I met him back in 1994-95.

I thought this was funny, a young kid was at the shop checking out the 65, he looked at Jim, said I hope you have a Big Chief motor in it, he thought for a second and said No it’s not a BBC it’s a real Pontiac. Kid said no Big Chief motor meaning Big Chief ( from Street Outlaws ) looks like Juisn has put Pontiac’s on the map.

This is were the future Pontiac guys are coming from, an how it will grow. Young guys wanting to get into Pontiac’s.

So it will make that kind of power.Impressive
For how long and go rounds consistently.
At 200+mph aerodynamics are gonna be a big deal
At 5psi its a beast.
What's the car weigh and what does the engine displace?

Donít know what it weighs, forgot to ask. Said he had to step way from it for a better then a year. Some life changes. I donít think he has any plans to compete with it. At this stage more of a fun car maybe a few events.
