1967 Buick Skylark GS 1/4 mile Drag Racing trap speed 0-60
Car and Driver Data
This is a small tire car....28x10.0x15 slicks on a 8" rim. It weighs 3550 lbs & has gone 1.31 in 60ft. Oh by the way, due to the small tires, I only launch the car at 3,500rpm, anything higher & it just wont hook up.
**** UPDATE 8/15/07 **** The Super Chevy Show was just held at RT 66 Raceway this past weekend & I'm happy to say that this car was the Runner Up in the B2 class. There were over 100 cars in the class & they allowed 1st rd buy backs.....GREAT WEEKEND !!!!
**** UPDATE 4/20/08 ****
Well I back halved the car over the winter, putting MT 32x14Sx15's on her. The fine tuning of the suspension has begun....a few flat adds has gotten her going straight, made a slight adjustment to the limiters in front to calm her down & went a 1.31 60ft.....only launching at 4K....with any luck those 1.27....60ft's wont be far away. The car has run a 9.43 already & once the sweet spot on the suspension is found I'm sure she will run somewhere around 9.35 or so.
