How many GSE cars are actually street driven?

    OK, so I'm bored! We have great weather here, but the tracks won't open again for a couple weeks. So I dumped some Mobil 93 in the old fuel cell and went for a drive. Ok it was only 2 miles up to the auto parts store, but it felt good to get her going again. Have you ever taken a curve at 30 MPH with Moroso springs and drag shocks? :eek2: :eek2: Well it was fun, but I could tell the ol' 455 didn't like the pump gas. Back in the garage, up on jack stands. I'd like to be tearing the motor apart and making more power, but other things come first.

    So, anyone else actually drive their GSE car still? I know you all have more $$ in your cars than I do. But, it's not any different than warming up the car driving around the pits!

    By the way, my last test day the car went 10.22@128. Not earth shattering, I know. Same motor as Bowling Green. I think there's a little more in it, too. (Did I mention the heads aren't ported?)

    Have fun. Get out and drive it!


    I don't and haven't since the spool has been in it. I will go around the block to check things out once in a while.
    I still have not looked into it to see what went wrong at the BPG race.
    Bow season ends 1/15 so I will soon find out what happened.
    Take care Jeff and I'll see you in spring.

    Not GSE but...

    I don't have a GSE car but I have driven mine to the track and been to Sonics with it. It runs pump gas like a champ. 11.5 compression and a big cam make it plenty street friendly on pump gas. I use a little blue bottle to make my compression. :Brow: The only thing that keeps my trips short is oil temps from a 3/4 filled block. I coated my pistons this year so we'll see if that helps at all.

    I have never drove the black car since is was done. I used to drive the blue GSE car over to buddy's house or to a local show. Not a lot of driving But I don't mind driving it Planned on cruiseing it BG last year but never did.
