What's up with the date on the timeslip? It says 01/01/2002.

Also, you running a race pipe or catted mid pipes?

Umm how u figure it doesn't count? And that's the stainless works headers with no cats and their transition tubes to the stock catback. And I noticed the date. Idk why it was like that and this being an online forum all yall can do is take my word for it. If yall don't believe me that's fine. I have the slip and about 10 friends who saw it so that's all that matters to me

Don't get so defensive. I have a feeling he's just playing with you. We all know a red light doesn't affect your time.

But I'm curious about why the timeslip has a date of 01/01/2002. Do you have more times slips from that night? Do they also have the wrong date? You can understand where I'm coming from. I update the 1/4 mile list.

I need to be sure that all timeslips are valid.

I can vouch for his times, I was there last night also running my 02 SS and my time slips read 01/01/2002 also.

By far the strongest stock car I have ever seen.


Looks like the ADM Intake works great at the track as well as on the dyno with a stock tune.

Just for the record guys.

We aren't gonna count Red lights or bad dates. I spoke with Junkie and he feels this is the best way to keep the fast list honest.

No offense, those are good times for sure.

OK if you're not going to count red lights then here is a list of the
names that have to be removed from the fast times lists. Sorry, but if you won't allow one guy then you can't allow anyone who red lights, period.

Bone Stock
#1--Pave1
#3--8ty8 Ls1
#13-AntiVnm

Bolt-Ons
#2--RedSS
#3--Rick@Livernois
#5--Blt4Spd

Internals
#6--TC

Also, Futral posted 11.26 @ 125.1 mph but I don't see him on a list yet, but he red lighted.

Go ahead and go through all the time slips again and you'll
see I'm right about all these guys red lighting.

GTAHVIT, can you explain why you wont count a red light? Iis still a valid and accurate ET. and as far as the date i have another member who has vouched for my time and i will be more than happy to post my other 4 slips that have the wrong date as well. If you want to be really picky the time is wrong too, does that disqualify a slip?

I'm guessing here, I spoke to Junkie on the phone today. He's away from a computer but getting updates through his mobile phone.

He asked me to explain to you all that he doesn't want red lights to count nor incorrect time slips.

This is his thread as he's a very accomplished driver. I'll let him give you all the details if he chooses.

As such, it is my guess that the fast list is as much a test of the driver as it is the performance of the car. But you'll have to get that answer from him.

Again this is my guess as to what Junkie is thinking. I expect him to be back online on Tues. I'm sure he'll explain it when he gets back. He is certainly aware of the discussion being had here.

Sorry for the second hand message.
