It really is great to see you back, Norm. It was getting boring around here. See you in October, if not sooner.

Way to call them out Norm!! really folks this is just a friendly reminder that ALL OF YOU should come down Get some Texas Hospitality in October. I will be coming out with details soon, which will include a great deal for out of staters and non-Texans. Everytime we go out its always a blast. From 11.80 stock (Aaron M, Jeff Helms) to 9’s, we have it all. And for those of you that want to run in the big boy class remember a 10.30 is good for about 6th place.

I would like to see a Heavy weight fight between the High 9 second xtreme Vette go up against John H's TT Viper. If I'm not mistaken I think they both post around the same times. 9.99 on the Viper and a 9.98 on the Vette. Nos vs. Turbo Hmmmmm that would be a **** of a race. I have seen that corvette up here in Dallas. I have met the guy that drives it seemed like a nice guy. I met him at the Huffins Chevy dealership when I had my C-5 in for service. He had his car up there as well. It sounds mean. I have never heard a Vette sound like his. Anyway I think they should race.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
First I don't live in Dallas, I live in Austin. Second, HMS TT Viper has not run a nine yet, his best et. so far is [email protected] As far as I know, I have the fastest M6 C5 so far, [email protected] All my C5's are built by Motorsport Technologies in Houston.

Norm...will the pig farmers ever finish your ride????? I too look forward to some turbo-friendly weather and a chance to match up against the bad dudes from other parts of the great state. You better hope that the ZR1 runs better than that **** they took to C&D....my truck on a 100 shot could drag that dump and two others tied to it.

Sorry SW, I had you confused with a guy here in Dallas that drives a Black Vette stroked and running NOS. There are so many Vettes out there it's hard to tell. He has a big sticker in his back window that says Xtreme Vettes thats why I thought it was you. As far as HMS's TT, I think it was in last months Motor Trend that he pulled off a 9.99. With you times and his times so close I think it would be a good race.

No problem, btw, the TT800 has not run a nine yet.(Motor Trend going by projections)

Yes Larry, you can bring other toys but only for practice runs. Don’t worry about the 800TT if the first one (Prowler orange) does not come the Next one will. Norm thanks for the kind WORDS. And lets see here maybe we can also get Norm’s Renntech Mercedes Vs. the Goldenboy (SW) Dinan M5 head to head with four people in each CAR!!. If I recall correctly Dave Golder also wanted to bet $500 bucks that his 13 sec ZO6 would smoke Norms Renntech with Mark H and I in the back seat. Now that’s a good race. SO HOW ABOUT IT FLORIDA, CALI, NY, NJ? Get your local Tuner to represent your state. Prize Money and Trophies are among the gifts. More details soon.

I will be bringing my Lightning as a tow vehicle....if the M5 and the Renntech want to have a little cutthroat match, I can unhook the trailer and get her in the lanes. You girls decide if you want some of the truck and I will put some good gas in the tank....see ya at the shindig.

Larry...if you bring something of the Buick persuasion in black, let me know...I have something that might be a good match for it...same powertrain, different body.

I think that Shakedown needs to liberate one of his hoopties from the vault and bring it out as well....maybe a yellow Cobra????

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by John Hennessey / HMS:
My Venom 800 will most likely not be there as its sale is pending. We will have at least one possibly two other Venom 800's at the event in Oct. So you can count on the show down, smack down. SW is correct, the Venom 800 as tested by Motor Trend ran 10.11 at the track during our first test. Motor Trend like other magazines, does a density altitude correction to give all of the cars they test similar temperature and altitude conditions. Thus, the 10.11 corrected to 9.99. Now if I could convince my guys in the shop that adding some bottled atlitude correction factor (NOS) to my car, i might get lucky and get a real 9 like the rest of the NOS guys here in TX. Nah, forget that idea, we'll just turn the boost up a few lbs and wait for it to cool off.

See you at River City! Hey Norm, be sure to go to River City (Marion, TX), I dont think you'll find a dragstrip in SantaClara, CA.
<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

John, i'm reading the article here, and they say....

"With a few shakedown runs complete, Hennessey tossed us the keys and told us to have fun. A few 10.28- and 10.11-sec timeslips brought big grins to the nervously watching Hennessey, but when a 9.99-sec blast occurred, Hennessey let out a cheer so loud the guys in L.A. heard it."
http://www.motortrend.com/june01/ttviper/ttviper_f.html

Is this the correction factor were talking about??

how big of a shot of NOS are you looking to use?

SW..that might be a pretty good match...even given your fairly liberal definition of "STOCK". What the ****, if you bring it to the shindig, we will have to line them up. Look forward to it.....

C'mon now Larry. Their is not a car made that you could get in to the 12's with. I am about as crappy a drag racer as ever lived but I do know someone nicknamed "Spanky Macedo" that is worse. Remember the *** whippin handed to you at HRP. I still laugh at that. I might bring the Winston Cup Car out. That SOB will mile an hour sweet. Very traction limited though. Take care man.

Doug Levin. . .Gainesville on a hot day and track not treated turned a 10.20 at 149 MPH at our Regional Rendezvous. This is definitely a 9 second V10 Viper. Look at the MPH. He was spinning his tires all the way down the track. If he hooks and stays in the groove, watch out Texas.

Doug, you just make too much power. I haven't had a clutch problem yet. maybe you need to give us some of your power. LOL
I will gladly take some. Hope you get this problem fixed. I would love to see your car in action. ( just take it easy on me if we ever line up )
