    Buddy has a new Track Hawk.. very impressive car

    Pulls up next to my in my GSX 4 speed with 100% Stock appearing 494 stroker iron head built by Tri shield and running some re pop wide oval byas ply tires.

    We were at a 20 mph roll, im not much for roll racing but in this case he has all wheel drive and Ill take this offer. He yells out "ARE you ready!" (and I was) , jacked the clutch in 2nd and just hammerd it! 2nd was perfect as not to spin, she hooked hard and walked the dog on his AZZ , pulled 2 car lengths and held it to about 1/2 way thru 3rd and he started to slowly pull. Still never closed on my more then 1 car length. Thats it.. he don't get a second race. He runs 11.7 at the track, I have never ran my car.

    Invited him over to shop after for a sympathy beer and a cry blanket. Really poured salt in the wound when I popped the hood! Nothing to see here folks, all stock! hahah.. He was absolutely shocked that the old iron did that to him.

    Would be the equivalent to a Typhoon from back in the day I think is what they might of been trying for? Those Typhoons were badass for what they were and when they were built. Imagine that 4.3L turbo charged V6 in a Regal sized vehicle! :eek::cool:

    From what I remember reading about the turbo Chevy 4.3 was it wasn’t near as reliable as a boosted engine as the Buick 3.8 was. Read the 4.3 would break cranks, rods etc
