PostSubject: Predictions   December 18th 2010, 2:47 pm

Anyone have a prediction if Don Turner will break into the 4's in the upcoming season ? If the car runs a 7.94 now, that figures out to be a 5.057 in the 8th. With the new heads that'll suck the moon outta the sky, I think a 4 is on the horizon. I understand that the maker of Depends undergarments has been in contact with Don as a rep for their products. Of course, this would be the Industrial Depends line they carry. Good luck Don and I hope I'm there to see the run. As far as the Depends part, Sandy.......get ready ! LOL

If she ain't in the 4's there will be some good parts for sale, an lots of em. I'm expecting high 5.2's N/A cause its been 5.46-5.48 before with the ole setup. If that comes true 4's are easy. We were comparing some 12 degree ProFilers yesterday at Transfer Perf an my intake ports are about a 1/4 inch taller than they were, hope that helps the power some on nitrous. That 7.94 was at 3010#, I've been 5.07 - 5.08 all day at Milan @3110#, with some weight off it would have seen 4's this year but Milan got the best "hook" an requires 3100 minimun with a BBC an nitrous so ya gotta puzzle all the possibilitys together to say it will happen in your mind but in the end there is still no 4 second slip no matter how ya calculate it,lol!

Ok, it looks like like gauntlet has been thrown down ! If anyone that's a member of the Quarter Eights club lays down the FIRST verifiable 4.99 or lower run, I have a not too crisp $100 bill for them. Now this has to be verified by a fellow club member or track time slip. I realize $100 is a drop in the bucket for what you guys have tied up in your combos, but I think this will be a lot of incentive and fun. Plus, if this happens, I'll give a equal amount to a animal rescue organization of your choice. I love my cats and dogs so the money will go towards them. And to answer your thoughts and questions, no, by no means am I a wealthy person and can afford to throw money around. But I love drag racing and I love my critters like unfortunate dogs and cats. It's time to have fun and pay back the the sport, and animals, I love. And by the way, if none of you ''candy asses'' can break into the 4's or less, I'll send a check for $200 to a animal rescue organization you all think it shoud go to at the end of the season.

5 hours or so gone by an only 5 differant responses , 29 views so 25 or so fellows are just watching close an are skeered of the Z hitting the 4's.

I didn't know ya were a "Aminal Lover" Dan, me too, some of my best friends in life have been dogs, they give ya there total life an ask for nuthing in return except kindness. If I'm first in the 4's I'll kick in the $100 I win an match it with another $100 to a rescue shelter too. My dog Benji was a rescued dog (twice), an I wake up nearly every morning to his hairy lil face laying next too me on my pillow, that ain't right I tell ya but I wouldn't say a word to him !!

Oh what the heck, if you put it in the 4's I'll toss in $100 bucks. That'll be $400 for a rescue shelter in the area. This could turn out to be quite fun and helpful. Good idea Dan!!

Don, yep I have dogs and cats since I was in 1st grade in school. We have 3 cats now, one I found beside the road and brought home and the other 2 have wandered in as strays. We're pretty lucky in the respect our neighbor down behind us was a vet tech. So any time we have a question, Kerri is there to answer. They take in rescue animals also and have 2 horses, 2 goats, 2 dogs and a whole bunch of cats. All are treated well and now have good lives.
Our 1 cat Igloo, has something called megacolon and has to get medicine twice a day to keep his waste material moving. It takes both Paula and I to give him the meds and this is why I can't travel with the race team for anything over a day. Kerri and Paulas sister have offered to help, but Iggy is our obligation and he comes first before any racing.
Benji is a lucky fellow to end up with good folks like you. Like you say, all they ask is kindness and they repay it back 100 times over.

I'm not stuck in a snow bank but I think it will take a miracle (like Frosty the snowman) for me to get anywhere near the 4's lol

the only way anyone is going to be running in the 4's is they better have at least 30 to 35k in the motor!
