Just curious about a few things.  You are by far one of my favorites, and have read in several issue's of MD the you race and do quite well.  Just wondering what you drive for a Daily driver, and what is your all time dream ride?

Here is a link to my daily driver when I am home long enough to drive her...(In iraq with out troops).....

Lee if you have the GT500, here are some recent track times that a local Evan Smith (very popular magazine test driver for fords and gms) belted out.

Evan Smith ran the following:

12.74 at 111 with a hot car

12.42 at 115.7 powershift 2nd and spinning thru 3rd with a 2.14 60 foot

12.554 at 115.32 speedshifting 2nd with a 2.13 60 foot

12.257 at 117.18 powershift 2nd with a 2.11 60 foot

12.37 at 116.52

12.61 and 12.68 with traction control on


Fast car.
Yes Gibber, this is the GT500 Mustang, goes up against the C6.

Thank's,  Though I dont have 550rwhp yet, I am working on it.  And believe me man, coming home safe is #1 thing for me.

You should have gotten the Black one, the GT 500 still doesnt hold up against that Z06 Vette....LOL Grin

Yeah I got headers and an Air Lid.  3 in True Dual exhaust(No cats).  Though I am only throwing down 333rwhp, and 347 Tq, I still have a lil ways to go....I am adding an LS6 intake, also a 235/240 cam on a 112 LSA, gotta have that choppy Idle....(This should net me 50rwhp without Tune) Cool Grin  Also looking at some Sub Frame Connector's to help with traction....I thought about going FI(Forced Induction for those not into cars to much) but I want that old school sound first.....

As for tires man, Nitto has some pretty nice and aggressive tires, I know they recently released a Street/Road racing tire.....Might want to check that out.... I think the web page it  WWW.Nittotire.com (Double checking now, yeah it is)....check this out, direct link http://www.nittotire.com/lifestyle_domestic.asp

That should have ya busy for a few anyway....Nitto's are good tires...Especially there DR's when they are warm...Buddy of mine has them on his car, and he dead hooks everytime....Well I think I rambled on enough for now...Enjoy man...

Yeah that is the down side to Drag Radials.....Rain and its like ya said....it's a ride Shocked....I guess you should ease on the gas, and not just lay her down!!  LMAO  JK man, somethings are just hard NOT to do....I try to be good in my car, but once in a while I lose control and run her for 3-5 miles and get up to 140ish and hold on for a minute or two and then let off Shocked...but i am usually the only one in the car when i do it....Cant see putting anyone else at risk except for myself.(and before anyone can say shit, I make sure I am the only car on the road when I do it)

Hopefully one day when I have the chance I will get out to the 1/4, Not times on it yet, but I have some fair times in the 1/8 on shitty launches....running roughly 9 flat most the time....Not launching at any significant RPM's just off Idle....

But I am curious on what yer car looks like.....and what the under side of your hood looks like as well.....TTYL  Oh yeah before I forget again, Congrats on getting with the PDI, glad to see someone had the ballz to let you guys do what ya want, with whom ya want....

Lee, what kind of street tires do u recommend?  I use to have a 1993 anniversary editon vette, I went through a dozen of different tires.  the ones I preferred best were Bridgestone and Perrelli.  I thought Goodyear were crap.  Wore out too easily.  What do u think of Yokohama, had any expierence with them?

Sounds bad ass.!!!

If I had a new GT, It would have the ELeanor body kit the moment I drove it home...That is BAD ASS..

Lee do you like the HOldens?? Thats GT0 here in US. Im thinking about getting a 2005 GTO (ls2) or a EVO IX... cant decide because I love the GTO interior, the LS2- then you have the Race bred EVO, AWD, 4 doors, etc..

Yeah I like the GTO as well...I dont think GM gave it enough time to really catch on....BUt the styling could have been a bit different.  It really looks like an over sized Cavalier.

Lee you are going to have to keep me posted on your car's pics.  When is MD going to publish them?  Not that is should matter, I buy every issue that we get here in Baghdad or Balad.  LOL  If I can ever manage(Maybe in Jan after I move to Texas) I will have to post up some updated stats and pics of my car.  Also have you taken your stang down the 1/4 yet?  If so what times ya running?  LMAO

For the guy asking about the POPO cars....Just about any precinct should have something posted, or you have top pay a fee to get on the invite list, unless it's a state auction....Just best to have money in hand and ready for paper work.....

Well it wont be until December.  I was let go from KBR last week, but was very fortunate to be picked up by another contracting company, so I never had to leave Iraq(And for some reason I am happy about this?  LOL)  Anyway, thye pay better,  BUT hell yeah I will stop in and say heah, if weather is fair enough I will bring my car.....Thanks for the invite...will shoot ya a message as soon as I know when!!

Even though you drag pro, it shouldnt be anyless fun to see what she can do...My buddy just went 12.3(I know slow to your 6-8 second passes) in his Black WS6.....He pretty much has the same mods as I do, except he has, Electric cut out, drag radials and the Textralia clutch.....He is a dayum good driver...

Have a good one....I gotta get some sleep...was a long day today...

Just read your colum in MD.  That is funny, the guy that got to train with you got sick.  I have pushed almost to the point, but I odnt htink I ever have puked......How do I get a chance to work out with ya man...LOL  I'll make ya a bet, if I dont puke then just the chance to work out with ya is good enough for me, but if I do....Then I buy lunch where ever you want to eat?

Also, is that a pending suspension from the IFBB or are they just saying, if you do this, then we will do this?  What is your plan of action on this.   You have pointed out that several females are par-taking in things that violate the bi laws yet there is no reprimand on them.....

Ya gonna fight it, or just roll with the punches?  Knowing the way you are, you are going to fight it.  And on that note....Good luck with PDI they sound like they are on a good foot thus far with letting BB's pose in anya event they wish with out all the Bullshit.....
