F*cking morons. He said he wants to get it into the 15's, he didn't say it does run 15's. How fast are your pieces of shit? At least he's man enough to want to go find out.

I know he said he wants to run 15s, which is why I laughed. And you have to be man enough to want to go find out what your car runs? $10 and a 25 minute trip and I can easily find out what my car runs, which I probably will be doing this spring.

Well he better do more mods than neon lights and a CAI, which to my knowledge is all he has done.

Yes. Some of them are gonna be surprised that that's actually closer to their 1/8th mile times.

Probe GTs run 15.7 stock. With a ZE they can run low 15s, high 14s.

My T/A is in no condition to be run yet.

Liking the Pontiac picture, dont see many of those around here, but my neighbour has a firebird, dark metallic red with cream leather interior, probably the most beautiful car i have ever seen...

The closest 1/4 mile to you is probably Santa Pod. I think Avon Park is quite a bit further for you. I've run several times at the Pod and a few at Avon Park. Santa Pod has an excellent facility, but I thing Avon Park has a better track. Of course, it's been 10 or so years since I've run at either.

Wow I go to get a haircut and all this. Yes I am AIMING at 15s. Im sure thats possible with a few small adjustments. The car is actually pretty quick at the moment. I never made that CAI though. Kinda scared me that it might such up water.
