So my buddy wanted to run at Rock Falls Bracket Day yesterday, 1st place pays out $1000. I figured I'd go along and run the Lebaron, we should do good. Well we brought the 2 slowest cars by far to the track. Everyone else in our class was running 11's or faster lol. And they were fuckin' GOOD. Cutting .00x lights all day, and consistently running 10.55x on 10.55 dial-in's, so needless to say we got crushed in 1st round. Oh well, it was fun.

Times:

r/t: .181
60': 2.443
1/8: 10.509 @ 66.23
1/4: 16.420 @ 82.62

r/t: .116
60': 2.500
1/8: 10.802 @ 66.44
1/4: 16.695 @ 83.09

(Spun real bad on the launch)

r/t: -.142
60': 2.424
1/8: 10.352 @ 67.68
1/4: 16.163 @ 83.96

(Other guy went red as well, -.014 light, but ran 10.590 on a 10.58 dial :shock:)

I was powerbraking off the 3rd yellow on first two, and car seemed to take off a bit after I let off the brake, so I tried going off the 2nd yellow on the last one. That didn't work either. Oh well, I wanted to see what it would do. :lol:

1990 Chrysler LeBaron GTC Turbo convertible. 2.5L turbo atx. Bone stock. It's got the Neon auto in it, so 31th. Trap speeds are real low compared to what Neons usually run with similar ETs. Normally 88-90 or so from what I've seen.

We have an intercooler we are gonna toss on, and a 3000GT blow-off valve. Wonder what it'll do with an intercooler lol.

Yup, it still doesn't have plates. DMV is never open right after I get a car. I wanted a decent baseline before I start doing some free mods to it for power.

Well we have intercoolers, piping, and bov's. My buddy also has a s16g I can basically have, but it needs a rebuild at least. We'll see what I do. I know it has a retarded flange on it for the turbo, but I'm pretty sure a drill would fix that part. Pop out the studs, and drill new holes, and port it out a bit to a t3/t4 flange or something.

It's also got a ghetto MBC on it, came off an aquarium I think. I haven't touched it.
