Well now that you mention it...
Last year just after I bought this car, at Mason Dixon raceway, up between Frederick and Hagerstown, I ran a 15.26 @ 89.77.
The only mods to the car were a K&N air filter, and two Flowmasters welded in replacing the stock mufflers. The car had 136,000 miles on it at that time.
Then about a month after getting that time, I went to MIR (Budds Creek) and the best I could do was a 15.7
So last winter I rebuilt the motor, and added all the stuff in my signature.
Tonight I went to the track for the first time since the rebuild.
I only got to make one pass, and ran a 15.22 @ 92.69
I bogged the car off the line and my 60' through the 1/8th mile times were horrible, but I still feel this car should be doing way better than it was a year ago when it was in full stock trim.
So if Mason Dixon is a faster track, I hopefully should be able to break into the illusive 14's up there.
I do think Budds Creek has slower times in general. I saw some cars there that should have kicked my butt, but they were in the 15's or high 14's also.
I wouldn't recommend going there if you are looking for a fast time. Just something about their clocks.
