I posted this on T6P.com since I am a moderator on that site and can edit and update the list. If I am ever allowed to moderate the TSO section here?? I will post it on TB.com.

Official 8 Sec & Faster Buicks on stock style suspension 10.5" Tires - t6p.com - Turbo Buick Regal Resource

There are two lists the official TSO Top Gun Point Series list and an Outlaw list. The outlaw list is very incomplete I know some on the list have been faster and I am missing a bunch like Roy and Laz's 8.40 pass, Cal Hartline's best, Lazaris and a few others. As soon as I get the info I will post it and update the list.

The TSO list should be pretty accurate as I took that from past records. For some reason I am missing MWBC 08 and do not have the exact time OC ran which I believe is his fastest in competition. If someone (or OC himself) could send me the exact time he ran I will update that also.

Rules for inclusion of the Outlaw list are 8 second or faster time slip Buick body/Buick V6 power stock style suspension 10.5" tire. Send info to mlyonsdc@yahoo.com or just PM. Please include full name date you ran and exact ET you ran to the thousandth.

Wait, I'm confused. I know the first list is for a pass made during competition at a TSO event. Right?

Is the second list for a pass made in TSO trim at any event? Even during a test and tune?

Both lists are really outdated, and the second list is outlaw so doesn't need to be in any class trim as long as it's a buick with a v6 and stock suspension.

Seems like a tough list to keep current. I guess it all based on driver input. The bigger the ego the more likely he/she will have a place on the list.

You mean cheating! Post your slip to prove it. That should work.
Most certainly. Time slips should always be offered. I'm not in the running and I'm not very competitive. I also don't know all of you TSO guys the way you know each other. But I'm sure you all may agree that time slips should not just be offered but also required. And knowing how much you all trust each other you may also require 28 witnesses, a priest, rabbi, a war hero, and notary to sign of on it as well.

Richie , I know I have video of your car running @ Farmington back in the day. It just may take a while to get it off of my old Sony 8mm.
