    Hi all,
    Since a lot of you in the Northern Hemisphere are prepping for Winter and wont be able to race, thought I might start a thread where you can share your PBs along with videos and slips showing your achievements.

    1/8 mile PB
    - 60ft 1.35

    Does it have to be buick power or can it be any of our cars?

    This is my personal best in my 87 Regal. It's a 3100 pound back halved car with a bored and stroked 523" iron block that's filled and girdled. It's car 160V on the right of the time slip.
    It's a fresh combo and every time I've raced it this year it's gotten faster.
    Looking forward to next year!!

    I don't have any videos of the above run but this one was posted from the Buick Bash at Quaker Valley Dragway back on June 14th.

    11.57@119.. 1.68 60'.. have to get that to the 1.60 range. Not bad for a jackass with a 4 speed.

    Edit- also pinging off the rev limiter for the last 50' or so..

    Every time I hear this story I chuckle to myself. It's not that I think it's funny, so glad you're ok Bruce! With all of the crap that I've been through and the stuff that has happened to me I just can't believe this didn't happen to me.
    Had to be a sight to see that's for sure...

    I have a video and also time slips,unfortunately,I don't know how to put them here.The car is back halved,weights just over 3000 pds with driver,so its 2.850.The best time for my race car? 2018 GS Nationals,it went 9.04 and 147 1/2 mph.S-2 heads,stock block and crank,494 ci,short time a lousy 1.29 on the back wheels.On th 1/8 it did 5.7 and 120 mph. The block is filled,with a girdle.On that day,it actually went 9.13,then 9.06,and then 904.Fairly consistent,all the time.Bruno.
