Are we stretching this story a little????? [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Frist you say:
-snip-I've got a 305 TPI and had no problem out running a 396 Nova. I also outran a 428 Mustang, but I think the guy lacked driving ability, he was TOO easy. 350 Camaros and Firebirds are no problem. Never got a chance at a 'vette yet. One time I tried, but a Honda wanted to try him out and I couldn't get beside the 'vette at the light. The Honda driver wasn't too surprised when the 'vette ran away from him but when a Jeep went around him too, he was noticeably upset. The driver of the 'vette kept turning his head to look in his rearview mirror, having a hard time accepting that a Jeep was keeping up with him.-snip-
Then you say:
-snip-On the street, stop light up to the speed limit. I'm no idiot, I know he'll take me in the quarter. Did I mention fiberglass Jeep body, don't weigh nothing. -snip-
So you passed a Honda at the amazing speed of 30mph?
But the 'vette couldn't go faster then 35mph?
So you had "no problem out running" a Nova, Big Block 'Stang, a 350Camaro and a firebird,,,,,,,,,,as long as they don't go over 30mph.

I have a IROC Camaro with a TPI 350, it's weight is 3250lbs, much lighter then my 'glass tub jeep. The 350 has 230hp and 330lbs torque, the most a 305 had was 220hp and 295lbs but not in the same engine, you could get hp or torque but not both.
I'm sorry, I don't mean to be mean but I have a hard time believing anyboby that only has 3 stars.
