Corvette Stingray vs Grand National KOTS Edgewater 2011
Corvette Stingray vs Buick Grand National turbo grudge racing in the King of the Streets
competition at the Thursday Night Lightz event 8-4-11 at Edgewater drag
strip. It actually looks like the Grand National might have been able to
win if he could have stayed in the gas. Check out my channel if you want to

This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!
Z34 - Intake and chip. Stock at the time of the Iroc-Z race.
SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
in this Video)
vs tuned turbo Cobalt at the Track.
Regal: Headers, mild cam, pulley, tune and intake
Vs stock G8. Regal: same mods as above
11.9 @ 112 in the 1/4 on slicks with some c16 race gas mixed in, m90 blower
Vs full bolt on, gears, tuned 2011 Mustang v6. Regal: TVS swap with
stock TVS pulley. 7psi of Boost.
vs full bolt on, 3.55 gears, tuned 1998 Cobra. Regal: same setup as vs the
Vs 330whp low 12 second Vortech supercharged 2002 Mustang GT. Regal: TVS swap + 2.8''

As always the Regal had stock heads and never had an Intercooler!
Thanks for all the comments!

10.99 buick run daily driver
This is my daily driver 1987 Buick Regal T. 3.8L turbocharged, white version of a Grand National.
Stock block with ported Champion iron heads, slightly modified turbo, injectors and downpipe. Running on 93
octane pump gas at the track, this 10.99 was backed up by 5 more 10 second
runs with a best of 10.81 @ 124 MPH. Yes it has A/C and gets 22 MPG on the
highway. Leave it up to a Buick !
The Legend: Turbo Buicks
The Smoking Tire heads out to Fontana, CA for a drag strip meetup with the
guys from turboBuick.com and learns
about the one-time "fastest car in America," the Buick Grand National.
87 Turbo Buick 11.42/121mph pass
June 26, 2009 - Baseline testing for the next upgrade. Funny part is Mustang before me forgets to
close his hood. Not so funny as my tires cool down waiting for him to get
his act together. That rattling noise after launch is a lesson learned on
how much the tranny actually moves under load and how much clearance to
maintain from rotating parts...oops.
Cummins S10 vs. Duramax Camaro
Brandon's Cummins S10 drag racing at Scheid Diesel's eXtravaganza 2009.
Round #2 rematch put me up against the same first gen Duramax powered Camaro Z28. I turned the
Nitrous on for this pass and hurt
traction even more.
