damn rabbits over there

Two of them are definetly 20v's too. You need to fix that car over at your shop, and then take it to the track before you hand the keys back to the owner!
Anyway, how about that for find though? Six 12 second N/A cars, all four bangers, all no joke. I should have some good information about them soon than later. They have another event coming up on the 24th, can't wait to see the results. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Naturally Aspirated Top 1/4 Mile List. (soch naungayan)

Got a few passes on the 22's tonight. I need alot more seat time.

best of the night:
60' 1.97
1/8 8.623
mph 83.69
1/4 13.318
mph 105.16
That was w/ a bogged start....
I cut as good as a 1.85, but i either misshifted my other runs, or placed my shifts incorrectly.
