It was bad for the Mach1, don't know about his mods, it was an 04 because of the badge, m5, stock wheels, maybe magnaflow CB because of the exhaust tips, definetely x pipe sound... driver on his 30's..

Picked on him, going back home from michigan yersterday afternoon, i saw the car when i was passing on the left lane and i decided to have to some fun with the GTO. i slowed down (until about 80mph) to be side by side with the guy, gave him a rev and was enough to let him know my intentions. he did the honking, and we both started pretty much about the same time... 3rd gear start from a 80mph roll is a blast with the cam.
i let of at 6000rpm in 4th gear with at least a bus lenght in front.
i waited for him, i wanted to go one more time :gears: , but he promptly denied the signal request,the look on his face was priceless....

I didn't have the 3rd to 4th gear problems i was having at the track, clutch fluid is very clear, i should be even trapping 2mph higher by now :turbonaug
i know the race wasn't fair, but i swear this was my first street encounter in 2-3 months, and he happened to pick the bait :gears:

east of where ??? :)
tell me more about this Mach1....
i would fear them at the 1/4 mile track (just few of them) with some weight removed and once they get suspension/drivetrain/tires dialed out. other than that N/A vs N/A, bring the fackers on..

east of you :) Come to the other side of Ohio and I'll try and talk him into coming to QCR.

mods that I can recall off the cuff:

x pipe, chipped, 4.10's, gutted trunk, nitrous

A little farther east and I'd give it a shot. Philly, that car sounds familiar. Is it someone who posts on here?

is it a white Mach1??
i'll kick is azz N/A, he would rape me on the bottle. i'm doing small suspension changes, bushings/drag bags, and i'll run better tires in the rear. (currenlty using worned out nitto 245 dr's). i'm planning to install a small 100 shot to complete the combo.
i'm sure we would have time to race next year bottle vs bottle :drink:
for now, i'm done for the rest of this year.

I dunno, about an ass kicking, but I think you might have a slight advantage n/a vs n/a. I think another good matchup would be me on pump gas vs you no bottle. From a dig it would be close.

i'm sure he's cutting better 60's to run 12.6 n/a
check the slips in my sig, 12.4-12.5 with a 1.93-1.97 60'. what would i run with a 1.7-1.8 60' ?? :)

yep, it looks like you and me would be a good match up, are you close to toledo,OH ??

I can be. :)


oh and dont count the mach out. his driving technique has improved since the 12.6, he just never made an n/a pass after getting nitrous because he was shooting for 11's

Hey I think I know who you're talking about! My 12.6 was with a 1.8 60' if memory serves. I still have the stock axles so my 60' are nothing special. Good 60's = broken stock axles! I think we'd have a good N/A dig race, with advantage to you (blue goat06) everything else bieng equal. And good kill with the Mach you raced, stockish from a highway roll with you is a deathwish.

Cam99, your car is running pretty strong. i know of another Mach1 here in Ohio, i think close to cleveland that also runs on the spray, and is also white. if i remember he said he broke the engine on the juice but he was able to get a replacement. he's still spraying. we have talked about racing in another forum, but driving 3 hours to race is a little too much for both of us.

Is his name Craig? I know of a White Mach in Ohio that expired his motor, except I was pretty sure he had a procharger.
