well I bought mine to have fun on the street.....The nearest track is 45 minutes away and I dont get much chance to go there nor do I want to beat on my baby much, I had planned to go once a month but so far I have been only twice in 6 months.silver moose said:Did they buy them just to say they have 1?

For one, Aussie said he didn't lay into it hard. For another, he has a Monaro and is in Australia and is therefore not running a car that is as capable as the GTO (lesser engine). Don't base your comments on something that doesn't quite pertain to our situation.WhiteTXMach said:Shouldnt a blown goat be trapping higher than 112-114??
Yah, so I guess the other people who chimed in about their blown times are in Aust with Monaro's too huh??? :zzz:phobos512 said:For one, Aussie said he didn't lay into it hard.

If everything goes to plan I should be at the strip next Wednesday night.
I am just getting a final tune done on Monday and i can't wait to see what it will run.
I have had the maggie on the car for about 3 weeks now and despite my tuner suggesting I don't give it a run, I couldn't help myself a couple of weeks ago. With a conservative tune I gave it one run for an easy 13.1 @ 112.4 with a slow 2.2 60'. This was using my 245/35 19 street tyres.
Given my Monaro has run 12.7 @ 111.8 with just bolt on mods on my 19's, I am hoping the maggie should help it to around 12.3 - 12.4 @ 114 - 115...i hope
I will keep you all informed.
Not every Tom, D_ick, and Harry buys a car to take to the track everyday. I know a few guys with some very serious street machines that have NEVER taken their cars to the track and probably never will.silver moose said:Did they buy them just to say they have 1?
