Just thought I'd pass this along although it is not Buick related... Steve Short's turbo Mustang that runs in the PSCA Wild Street class (this is a DR class where the biggest tire allowed is a 275/60/15) set a new record running 7.97 @180mph... That's right 7's on a little 275/60/15 Radial tire!!!!! :eek:

This is the real deal.

I totally quit, my twin turbo v-6 will blow up before I ever see 180MPH :mad:
I was going to consider building my car for this class.

I know what ya mean. I don't know exactly what the HP numbers are on these 7 second cars (1700hp? or more) but a lot of the turbo cars weigh 3500+lbs and run 185mph. That's a lot of power that I don't think the V6 can make as easy and run those numbers at the weight that is needed to hook on DR's. The MT DR's will make it easier at a lighter weight but these cars are no feather weights.

Steve,
Is there a link that shows the results from the race mentioned above? I'd like to see a list of all the qualifiers/times and the rounds but I couldn't find it posted on any BB's.
