    I was browsing on buick in the kill section where members post & brag about the street races they have gotten into. Evidently this fellow who goes by the name of mean chicken claimed to have sawed off a hellcat in a street race. I wondering if its possible for a six cly powered 87 Grand National with 80's technology to be able to hang or beat a 707 H.P. dodge. The following is what was posted

    Dropped my son off at his job and decided to go cruise around....see what I could rustle up for supper.
    Topped off the tank at Chevron, methanol was topped off earlier in the day, so I started cruising around.

    An hour went by and nothing was happening.
    Everything worthy of a whuppin' was going the other way today...grrrrrrrr....
    I took out a little frustration on a Tacoma and a IS350 who were trying to show each other what's what, but still felt like I was holding in a massive fart or something....

    I was about to head back to the ranch when while sitting at a light, an M5 takes off hot down the road across the intersection. I'm hoping he'll catch a red so I can get him...but he disappears never to be seen again.

    Sitting at another light I see a 2005 Stang GT coming up behind me....but then he moves to the turn lane and goes away.

    Just as the light turns green, I look in the mirrors again and see a blacked out Challenger with the Hellcat hood coming up behind me.
    He's at least 200 yards back so I sit on the green to hold it for him....wanting to make sure he gets through.
    Close enough so I start accelerating and hold her in 2nd gear waiting.
    Just as he comes along side I nail it and get this attention leaving him a few lengths behind.
    He nails it too but there's a red ahead so we let out.
    We roll up on the light and just as we get stopped the light goes green and we're off.
    I quickly get about 3 lengths on him and then just hold him there until at least a 1/4 mile are up.

    Next red he's next to me:
    Him: I like it!
    Me: It's just a little V6, but it can do damage:angelic:
    Him: [stunned look]:confused:

    Light turns green and we go....he loses again by 3...

    Next light:
    Him: I can't do from dead stop...no traction...
    Me: I rolled into it for ya so it's was a pretty fair launch
    Him: [stunned look]:confused:
    Me: tee hee
    Him: [As he looks at my drag radials for his next excuse] Yah but....you have better tires...o_O
    Me: OK...tee hee....let's go from a roll this time
    Him: :oops: Oh...OK....:whistle:

    I manually shift to 1st and wait
    Light goes green and we roll into it. Just after I manually shift into 2nd (20mph or so) he goes all in and I go with him.
    He got out about a half length with the jump and then I reeled him in until door to door
    We stayed like that for over a 1/4 mile and then had to let out...
    A tie from a roll.

    So there....finally vanquished a 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat
    2 - 0 - 1:chicken:

    A stock grand national is only rated at 245 h.p. & 231 cu.in so even with a few mods the hellcat should have a huge advantage. Thats why I posted this since I love the whole idea of the hellcat I'm a little confused as to how this G.N. even stood a chance.

    Great that someone wants to race! But take it to the TRACK where you can kill only yourself and maybe the guy your racing? NOT any innocent children or adults on the street! Our Brothers and Sisters for many years spent many hours and many-many $$$ trying to get this activity OFF the streets and onto controlled tracks, where it can be accomplished as safely as possible. PLEASE Keep it that way! :cool:

    I can see it happening. Judging from the story the farty guy lives for the street race and undoubtably has lots of experiance. If the HC driver was new to the HC, let alone to street racing, I can see it. I can't see it being a walk in the park even then though...

    Do a few searches on those 87 gran nationals. Ran in the 14's out of the box and have a ton of modern mods available that easily drive them down into the 11's with ridiculous 60 ft time. He wasn't running drag radials for looks.

    Take a look here...
    1987 Buick Grand National Simple Bolt-Ons Install - GM High-Tech Performance Magazine

    Strip Testing - Turbo Buick Basics, Part 9 - GM High-Tech Performance Magazine

    They were a good setup in their day and even better with modern technology. 75% HP and 100% torque increase available.

    Toto isn't in Kansas anymore!

    The reason i'm asking there is a guy in the Phoenix area with a white regal who feels its something special who you might be able to take some easy money from. He's full of himself & claims he doesn't want to bother with any finance company's or DMV problems should he take your offer.

    Be real careful with what you bet. Having owned several Grand Nationals. Bone stock with injector turbo swap and convertor swap ran 11.50. Upgrade heads easy 10.50. Had a tube chassis car 8.10 quarters turned down.
    If this is the same turbolou over on turbobuick web site you dont want to run what he might bring.
