Ran a new best time with my Cougar. The gears & TC really made a big difference! I ran a handful of 13.60-13.90 passes, with the best of the day being a 13.57@98.72 Here are my current modifications:

Amazing what happens when you think before spending money. :D That car is now quicker than your SC at what - 3/10 of the investment? :D

It's funny you mention that Dave. I was thinking the exact same thing on Sunday. Now that I am older, and slightly wiser, I'm ready to build the '93 SC. Too bad I already have all the stuff I bought 4 years ago before I knew what was going on. Oh well.

I haven't had a chance to weigh it yet, but I plan to. I haven't done any weight reductions, nor do I plan to.
