I just wanted to add my $0.02 and say that Chris' 86 really kicked some
butt last night.  I couldn't believe how much he picked up running a
straight pipe exhaust (4+ mph!).  The 86 turbo and cam, plus the
stock flywheel and sticky tires are a really good combination at the
strip for near-stock performance.  His time corrects to a 13.66@98.95!

Rich also made some big gains on his Tbird that I'm hoping he'll
tell you all about.  We broke him in pretty good ;-).
