    hmmm could be a drivers race, the PI gt's are pretty quick with a driver worth a damn. On the other hand in the hands of a piss poor driver they are not any better than a 215hp 94-95 GT. You have a small amount of hp over stock and that shifter will make for quicker shifts so :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: sounds like a good race to me.

    Driver has a lot to do with it. When my pony was a stock 225hp I did beat a couple 99+ but also lost to a few too.

    Speaking of 99+ verts, I ran against one at the drag stip. Both of the cars were completely stock back then. This guy had 02+ I assume, because the car also had factory bullitts, but it was a vert and auto. We ran identlical times. If I would have gotten a better launch, I would have stopmed him.
