What two cars were racing?

06-25-2006, 07:02 PM
Honda Vs GM F body 4th gen. The Honda was a turbo Computer tuning on scene with nitrous and slicks.'
The F body was a firebird/or TA with a good suspension a big motor with lots of cam and nitrous.
The Firebird looked to be a legit 9 second ride.

I've seen that one I believe we made a thread about it last time. Was it a black or dark green t/a vs. a red civic that didn't put his slicks on till the end and then blew up his tranny?

06-25-2006, 08:26 PM
Red T/A I think and it blew its second gear and the Civic didn't put on his slicks (had to remove his front bumper to do so) til the last race.
Those two cars were in totally different classes. Very bad comparison. I'd rather have seen a highly modded Supra go against that T/A than a Civic.

Fbody had a centrifugal on it also. I could tell right away when that thing hooked the honda had no chance

It was an LT1 car. Ran pretty good.

I'm all about the LT-1.

I'm all about the LT-1.


But really, that other loser should never show his face on the race scene again. What a dumbass!

They are filming Pinks at Gateway here in STL this Tuesday and Wednesday night. A few of us are planning to go over and watch on Wednesday.

I actually applied to be on the show =)

That would rape if you got accepted, Ben.

lt1's are dogged on alot even when people like to call the 350 Chivy one of the best motors made. All an lt1 is, is a fuel injected sbc from the 70's. They have a HORRIBLE intake on them though. Jeez.

Throw an Edelbrock Air Gap Intake on there with a 750 then your at your regular ole 350 Chivy.

06-26-2006, 10:40 AM
Not completely the LT1 has some very good new tech including better cooling an able to run Higer compression the Lt1 Lt4 and Ls1 are all very close in design. theLT1 is a pretty stout motor and responds well to bolt on mods and intake upgrades.

06-26-2006, 11:49 AM
doesnt that lt1 have that horrible distribution system... were the distributor is behind the water pump? ehhhh... why?

06-26-2006, 11:52 AM
Yes the OPTi spark, they were changed in later renditions of the smallblock.

that's like asking why did Ford come out with the y block motors, smeone thought it was a good idea at the time

06-26-2006, 11:53 AM
what the hell is a Y-BLOCK? is it a block were it keeps breaking and you keep asking WHY!

06-26-2006, 02:03 PM
I'm glad you asked Y. the Y block is from the early 1960s. The ford 292/312/390 were all Y blocks. These were cast iron blocks so the Y was to give them more strength in the crank journals.

06-26-2006, 08:41 PM
It was also the motor in the original supercharged Tbird:eek:

06-26-2006, 08:49 PM

That is correct!

1957/312 and 1967/390

06-26-2006, 11:29 PM
There was a supercharged 57 and 67? I know what I need to get next..:D

06-27-2006, 01:57 AM
If I remember correctly the 57 version was a "NASCAR" package. I know for a fact that it had a Paxton supercharger on both of those years.
