Submit your claim in a reply with photo proof of the timeslip. We need 60', 1/8 plus MPH, 1/4 plus MPH, and track at a bare minimum. Also the mods to your car, and weather conditions (at least air temp). I'll update the list constantly. I think at the end of the year I'll do some awards for the "Best of's" in 2007. For the sake of getting it off of the ground, I'll take any 2006 slips to start off and establish some baselines. My "agenda" for doing this is that if things workout, Aerobird Motorsports should be renting Portland International Raceway for a day for a TBird/Cougar showdown, car show, and BBQ. Some come on, I expect a few slips by the end of today from last year!

Some of us only race 1/8" mi....

But to make it official, the TC will be getting a 331 in the next couple of months.... Maybe I'll make a trek to VMP for a 1/4 mi time run...

I could do an 1/8 mile list too, but it would rock to have your 1/4's after the 331 anyways :D

Well if I can get my car done in time this year and if I make it to a track, it should put up some decent numbers.

ported GT40p heads
ported Explorer intake
E-303 cam w/ RR's
T-5
3.55's

It better run low 13's or I'll be pissed

It might not quite count as a tow vehicle but I'm pretty sure I'll be driving a Srt-10 Ram by spring/summer. I'm Getting rid of the Titan, it would be nice to run it at the track first, though. My friend with the Srt-10 and I are trading so he would probably go there with me anyways

Yeah Buddy,turbo cars love a higher gear 3.27,3.55. They stay in the boost longer that way. I know a kid here in Wichita that has a 96 cobra with 70mm turbo,5spd,3.55 and runs about what you run
10.90's at 130 sumthing. Its awsome to watch them take off with the tires chattering when the boost really comes in,he has to let out of it most of the time because the track sucks.But your #1 in my book. I say post him on the list!!

I guessed on the year so if I could have some more info please fastcat? Year, trim (LS, XR7, GS) and if you could find the slip so I could get the 3rd digits on all the times that would rock. Enjoy being #1.

It's been awhile but here's mine... 12.23 on 225/50/16 Nitto DRs with a 85 shot of the happy juice. Best on the motor is 13.11@105.3 on 225/50/16 Michelin radials... I've never equaled that 1.900 NA 60ft... Guessing they slipped just enough to get up on the converter a bit harder...

Haven't been on a 1/4mi track lately, but it ran quicker 1/8mi times than 8.42 last spring(1/8 mi on the 13.11 run). Went 8.40 on a slower 60ft(1.93 I believe) but ran 83.xx, unfortunately I don't seem to have those slips..

Id say I hit a nerve there,the car I used was fn trashed.Had probably
100k miles on dirt roads,massive hail dents,paint was fading and peeling off,the pass floor was soaked from the fuked weather strip,pretty much coolant and water,then when I drove it home the abs didnt work,and when I held the brakes too long the wiring under the dash fried.What else did I leave out,oh I put the frontend on my car 87 t-bird,sold the rear to a guy for a cougar,engine,harness,vam,tranny,rad,electric fans,went to stang,still have doors,driveshaft,trim pieces,and rear glass.
It was like a organ donor.

If the car's rotted/totaled it's rotted/totaled. That's OK. It's the nice cars, the fixable cars, that bug the snot out of me.

On another note, fastcat's time is staying at #1. Since he's reusing the engine, tranny, rear end, front and rear suspension, air-ride, and othe stuff in #2 it's basically the same car only with a cage and no rust. Until #2 goes faster, #1 is #1.

This is my last full throttle pass with me driving the Gray 83 Bird. April 2006. The next pass I won the big one. First points race of the year. Points, cash and a 3 ft trophy. This is my wife's bracket racer. She let me drive it that night because my 84 lo-po Bird wasn't ready yet. THIS IS NOT THE QUICKEST PASS IN THE GRAY BIRD. (See below).It is the only timeslip I could find. It auto-shifts at 4250 rpm. LO-PO vintage 1977 460, small cam, cast iron exhaust manifolds, 600 Carter, 3.73 gears, 28 inch rears, stock 77 police car C-6. Very stock, very strong, and very consistent! I really love this car!! I have lost count of the number of wins and r/ups since April 1997. Best et with manual shifting at 4500 rpm (it has stock 1977 rod bolts and valve spings after all) it ran a 8.60 at 82.8 mph.

This is my 84 Slow-Bird. It has E6 crappy heads, Lincoln Town Car (86-90 ?) P.O.C. engine that shifts at 4200 (because that is where it runs out of breath). It has 3.45 rear gears, stock A.O.D., Carter 600, stock 84 Mustang H.O. intake, duraspark dist. with a GM H.E.I. ignition module, MSD Blaster 2 coil, Stock H.O. Stainless headers, H-Pipe. The car is very reliable but not as predictable to dial in and therefore has cost me several late reces. But I have learned to race (and win) as well as loose in a slow car!! THIS TIMESLIP SHOWS WHAT HAS ONLY HAPPENED TWICE IN MY LIFE--IDENTICAL PACKAGES AND THE COMPUTER TOOK IT OUT TO THE 1/10000 OF A SECOND!!!! The first time happened around 2000 or 2001. Ironically, both runs were against the reigning track champion!! This car was bought from a local charity organization with antifreeze in the oil pan for $ 280.00. One of the greatest buys for me yet. I love this car also, but not nearly as much as the Gray Bird or T. Coupe.

Birdman, the mph looks weird because the chin spoiler got the beam. (It took me years to learn that trick) I normally run 68 -69 mph with this car. The 87 T.C. has not been to the track yet. The 83 Heritage is waiting her turn with my wrenches. Haven't decided yet, but I'm thinking 351W for it.:D

And your 4x4 can go... climb a rock or something.

I would love to get back to the track, but we have been having February weather in April. In fact it was 10 degrees warmer on Christmas than it is right now. I also really want to get a new fuel pump in before I get to the track. Premium being $3.02 a gallon at the cheapest doesnt help either, being that I need at least half a tank of gas to launch hard without the car dying.

I went to the track today. I hate even posting my numbers, but I will anyway. I'm still not really use to the car since I don't drive it much. I still need to take care of the brake issue, and 2nd grinds a little because of the synchro going. I'll try to get the slip posted asap, hopefully this week at work. Anyway, the car SHOULD be in the 13's, but I need to learn how to hook up the tires. I won't run slicks, I consider that a bit of cheating, jus my opinion, I think if you can do it at the track, you should be capable of doing it on the street (No, I might play a little, but I would not race on the street, it's just crazy). Just a stupid rule (no slicks) I've had for myself. Ok, ok...Here are my AWFUL #'s for 265 hp at the rear wheels car: Oh yea, I'm street legal w/modded 302. No adders.
60 foot - 2.316
1/4 - 15.249
mph - 89.97
I actualy let someone else drive to see if they could do any better, and they did not. So.....maybe......I need to buy a pair of drag radials next time. Sure would have helped ALLOT. Yes, it was a bit depressing after being SO EXCITED at the chance just to go. I know, quit whinning and buy some slicks. Yes, I am considering that for the future also.

Your MPH doesn't indicate it. That MPH is right on the money for a 15.0/14.9 if you can get at least a 2.1 60'. I honestly don't think DR's will help unless your really spinning a TON down the track which messed with your MPH. (The GTO will do 14.0's @100 with tire spin, 13.3's @108 with a good launch)

IRS SUCKS for drag racing. And 245/45/17 BFG KDW's aren't big enough either. Every LS2 stock GTO I've ever seen with NO MODS at all except DR's cracks off 12.6's-12.8's with a decent driver.

The very next set of mods is wheels/tires. 245/45/17 KDW II fronts, 275/40/17 KDW II rears on 17" AR TTII (with painted centers) OR Vintage 40's depending on $$$. The brakes are going out from the 100+ drag passes and 33K miles of DDing so they will be done at the same time.

I imagine simply upsizing to the 275's and having the stickier tire will help immensely, and possibly crack 12's in full street trim. We also have the Hurst shifter on order, and a K&N in the car now. Depending on how the 275's do, we'll go "drag race mode" and pull the spare/jack/insulation/skidplates/spoiler/floormats and dump the airbox and headlight to go for the magic #.

I think I have to say this.

Im not in love with the idea of converting an 1/8th timeslip to a 1/4 and using that...

Simply because its not that accurate.

I ran my 1/8th ET and MPH through your calculator and...

Your 1/4 Mile ET is 15.84 seconds computed from your vehicle 1/8th ET of 10.1533 seconds.
Your 1/4 Mile MPH is 90.28 MPH computed from your vehicle 1/8th MPH of 72.81 MPH.

The calculated ET is a whole .4 seconds slower, and the MPH is 2 mph lower than my actual 1/4 numbers.

At LEAST note next to the entry that it was a calculated 1/4 ET and MPH.

Or have a separate list for 1/8th mile runners.

Just my opinion. This has been bugging me for a while now though. I just feel that you shouldn't be on the top 25 1/4 mile runners list if you haven't actually run a 1/4 mile.

P71
06-27-2007, 09:21 PM
Hmmm...

Might need another poll...

TurboCoupe50
06-28-2007, 07:18 AM
My vote is use it... Its an acceptable sub till you can get a real 1/4 run... Most conversions are generally slower than actual times, because they are set up using better prepared cars than the average street vehicle... Mine said 13.19@102...

With this info you get a idea how Shitty your 60ft times really are, as compared to optimum... Which ain't always possible(practical) for a daily driver...

3 new times for tonight ;)

Ted's Caddy-Bird went at least a 13.632@102.50 (fastest slip I have for him) for 10th Overall and 4th in Big Block. I even ran a 13.9@101 myself in it ;) Ted even got 2.0 60's!

Jim's 100% stock 5.0 SO Bird went 17.50@78 for last, but it was very consistent and looks great going down the track.

Layla went 15.252@90.89 for 18th (19th with Ted in there) just .01 behind yellowcougar. Good for 4th on the TC list ;) John ran twice and got a 15.60 with her too. 2.353 60' is good for 22nd. We had a LOT of wheelspin :D:D Got some nice photos hazing the tires down to the 330' :D

Thanks,

The cam runs okay while not on the spray. Its been a few yrs back, but the reason I bought the cam was because of the wide lobe separation angle, I believe its 116. At the time I was running speed density, so I needed the wide LSA to give me vacuum. However, with 24lb injectors, the tune was too rich at idle and too lean at WOT with SD. I switched to a 75mm ProM MAF and the tune was much better. I tried to hold off switching to MAF as long as possible, but in the end lost. :D

If you plan to run the NX264HR cam with 19lb injectors on SD, I believe you will be okay. But dont plan to run 24lb injectors. Depending on what you setup is, 19lb injectors should be fine anyway. I think I could get away with running 19lb injectors, I've thought about switching back.

Hey man, I hope you read this post cause I gotta say: your car is what first inspired me to stick with my Tbird and start making it go fast and look cool. Back in the boring high school computer classrooms a few years ago, I happened to stumble upon your cardomain page and that's what started it all. I showed all my friends and said "That's how my car will be." Even the way I wanted my dual exhaust to look originated from when I saw that page.

Anyways, sorry to sound stupid or whatever, but I needed to give credit where credit is due.

Back on topic, it looks like I have some work to do. I've been way bumped off the top 25 list. Lame :toilet: . I'm hoping my next few small upgrades (electric fan, underdrive pulleys, Explorer Intake, possibly some 3.27 gears, and a shift kit) will get me into low 15s.

sweet,I can't wait untill I get back to the track I have been gettting my car for paint it will probably add like 50 horse with a fiberglass hood and smooth paint job! lol Then I will be putting my 4.33 gears in so I will hopefully be able to get some air and get closer to badbird's 11.60 damn that is fast.But I think it will be more like 11.80's if I am lucky

Took the Tbird back to the track in beautiful 55 degree sunny weather. New rear gears and the timing @ 14deg being the only other changes. And here's my new best!

60ft: 2.179
1/8: 9.545@75.428
1/4: 14.91@93.53

I'll post a pic of the slip by tonight. Gotta go to work in a few minutes :( . Oh well, I'm glad to join the 14 second club! My 60ft time came down by almost 2 tenths.
