F.A.S.T. 69 Ram Air IV GTO running 12's on G70's
This was my best run last year at Pittsburgh raceway, it ran a 12.82 with
1.80 60 foot time on G70's. This was my first year running this car and I
only had time to get used to launching the car correctly and shifting
differently. This run was done without using the clutch to shift, I also
tried speed shifting(not letting off the gas and bumping the clutch) and
did not pick up any time. The engine is a 69 428 built to RAIV specs with
an M-20 and 4.11 rear. I am going through the entire car and looking to
pick up more time this year.
