I'll tear a scat pack a new a hole from anywhere, dig, 20, 30, 40, roll up to 150.
They are tug boats with less power.

Time slips show people power. Breaking shit shows people inefficiency of Turbo power.

I could have made far more power. But I sacrificed more power for proving to people that investing in turbos was cost effective. That’s what drew people in to learn more. Dollar to power ratio has to be there and proven for people to invest in a set up. If people aren’t willing to invest they don’t bother to stay here to learn more about it.


Unfortunately the way to actually convey that power is in numeric form. Not YouTube burn outs lol This place used to be bustling with activity, when I was putting up numbers, I never had a track closer than 2.5 hours either. Everyone belly aches about the trek to the track most weekends I was towing 3 or more hours to spend 30 seconds on The track.

Don’t get me wrong you tube burnouts are cool but if you want people to pay attention you’ve got to put down some numbers for comparison.

That was then ,and this is now! So whens the last time you hooked up your car to a trailer and drove 2.5 hours ? Truth is things are different now . Things have change even for you, and you know it!! So try again buddy!

No need to put my videos down Jeff. There was a time that you used to like my 4 cylinder . No need to feel threatened by it . It has 4 less cylinders then yours and you should smoke it with a few more psi!!

Those videos were made just to show the kind of burn out a turbo charged 4cylinder pontiac half a V8 is capbale of ! All those burnouts were made with a Holley 4 barrel with the secondaries dissconnected. So it was just with 2 barrels and just quarter throttle to boot ! So your quarter mile time runs down the track basically show your car is making more power then the car can handle . So what good is that kind of power if you cant use it! 146 mph should be really low 9's not 10.00's . I mean , if you do the math like i just did for your car , my burn out video and the dyno vids i made say that my car should go 9.50's @ 3300 lbs! So how does your time runs down the track hold any more water then what mine do ? Were both making calculations to show a given hp to weight ratio to come up with a estimated time figure .. Ive already raced and won racing a 10.00 car . So im not blowing smoke here ...

I was racing Pontiacís when you were still in your father balls. In 1968 I ran E/S ran 11.60ís on National record. Had a sponsorship to boot, race at Conn dragway until they closed. Raced at every track east coast. Atco, Englishtown, Long Island, Maplegrove. Long Mellow. Conn Dragway. So put that in your pipe and smoke it. LOL

You’re still running 11.60s (comparatively) too lmao

GOTurbo and don’t look back!

You’d be running 7s or better if you’d gone Turbo when I tried to get you to.

Funny I didn’t see you at the valley between 1987 and 2008. Or etown, or island, or....

Do bragging rights expire?

Thanks for reminding me. You can add the Valley to that list. Although I only raced there once. Come see me when you run 9.30 on pump gas.
