Wow that is impressive! There probably are, but I don't know if there are Impala's here that do that.

Congratulations.

That's a great time. What are the specs on that bad boy?

Are you really from Keene? I work there and live in Walpole. I thought I saw the car last week in the Wal Mart parking lot.

Thanks everyone, it does run better when you shift through all the gears.

I didn't change anything, just took care of some issues. Fixed the driveshaft rubbing on the crossmember, mounted front shocks to compliment the air ride, ran about a 1/4 tank less of the usual 93 octane. I definately improved my reaction time.

I've been manually shifting and I'm actually running out of 3rd gear just at the end of the track, I can feel it slow down. When I shift from 3rd to OD theres a delay and it feels like it slips for a second, but if I leave it in OD the whole time theres no slip from 3 to 4. Not sure which way I should go. I really think I just need to learn to hold 1st and 2nd a little bit longer.

I'm running a 377 stroker built by Golen with my eBay parts, a bunch of head work, cam and all the bolt ons. Edge 3000, some upgraded trans internals, HD2 shift kit, 3.73's w/ malfunctioning Eaton Posi and some M/T ET streets. Also running a full 1/2" FBSS airride setup.

Yeah i live in Keene.

Sounds like a well done ride, and sharp looking to boot. If you ever need help wrenching or a car lift (Have one at my house in Walpole) give me a shout, always willing to help club members out.
