English and Finnish

Hello,
I am sorry but I do not speak Finnish. I have searched the internet for a language convertor.

I got this one http://www.systransoft.com/index.html

but it does not translate finnish.

Are there any web sites that do that?

Thank you

Cosmo

Thumbs up

You will probably get somewhat peculiar translations, our languages are structurally so different, but you are always welcome to ask if you will not get understandable text Best of luck surfinn' this site.

Errr...i think Cosmo wanted to translate from finnish to english, not vice versa.

EDIT: ...and that site does that. Sorry.

Hey everyone,
hope you are all doing well. I recently spent two weeks in Singapore. I am glad to be home. I am going to the 1/4 mile dragstrip to run the vette tomorrow night. If anyone is interested, I will let you know my times.

Welcome back Cosmo! Hope you had a good trip!

Yep, we are interested about your quarter mile times! Maybe you have some pics too! We have already ran out of our driving season, so it would be great to see some action from other places!

Hi,
sorry I didn't take any pictures. It was at night.

Here is my time slip from that night. I am car 21 in the left lane.





I went back a week later and got this. I removed my spare tire and carrier and went with less gas. I also improved my reaction time. If I can keep from spinning the rear tires so much, I think I could make it into the 12s. The car that beat me on both of these runs belongs to a friend of mine. It is a modified C5 that has about 80 more horsepower than me. This time, he only beat me by .17 second! I am car 19 in the left lane.

What kind of engine you have? I think it is hard to get to 12s only with better grip...Is the other car stock or hard your frend done some mods adding power?

Anyway a nice improvement done in your reaction times! and ET also if the weight was the only difference!

My mods include:
big mouth air dam, Vortec Rammer, tb bypass, Comp Cams heavy duty valve springs, Comp Cams 1.6 roller rockers, Hypertech adjustable fuel pressure regulator, LT4 knock sensor module, Taylor spiro pro 8mm wires, NGK tr55ix plugs, 3.07 rear gears, Corsa cat back exhaust, Dyno tuned.

The other guy was driving a 99 C5, with a ram air intake, cam, valve work, corsa cat back and a dyno tune.

I bet you guys are missing your vettes over there. I'll try to post some good pics.
