  Thanks, as for me I just dropped the trans and had it looked at yesterday...high band clutches were burnt.  So that's actually good news...now hopefully I can get some mph back and third gear will pick up at well as what I'm losing from shifts...when your trying to pick up a 1/2 second  everything counts.

I will not get back to the track until next spring but will se howi t goes...keep posting your updates..I will do the same.

Sounds good. There's one more Midnight Mayhem coming up and the end of this month & hopefully I'll get a time slip this time.

I love to see second gens on the track. They are just a classic body style.

That was my best pass to date and I definitely needed the cage. I got booted for no fire jacket after that one.

10.99 & quicker requires a fire jacket so it was a pretty drastic improvement.

Nice launch..what time did you end up running?  Spray out the gate?  Looked good out the gate hard to see on the big end.

It was on a 175 shot all the way with no progressive. Time wise it did a 7.0 in the 8th and I was having problems with my shifter. I'm pretty sure the next pass would have been in the 6's.

A 7.0 in the 8th is like a 10.98 in the quarter so we totally skipped the 11's. The next move would be a 250 shot and I'm guessing low 10's. I don't really expect much more out of the car than that. I figured mid 10's on spray when I built the motor.

Those are great numbers..I guess the drive train and read can handle all that?  Never used nitrous so I assume your setup is built for that or your going with just enough power that your car can handle.  Your half track look great..what did your mph end up being?

I had a minor issue the last time I had it at the track. Valve float, bent all 8 exhaust valves.

New setup is on the money for a .650 lift solid roller

Specs on the new cam.

Advertised Duration (Int/Exh): 295/303
Duration @ .050 (Int/Exh): 262/270
Gross Valve Lift (Int/Exh): .582/.582
LSA/ICL: 110/104
Valve Lash (Int/Exh): .020/.022
RPM Range: 3800-7200

I wanted to get more aggressive on the duration but it would have required more lift. With my 1.65 rockers I'm already at 640.

Scrap that last cam. Comp Cams spec'd this one out for me today. I'm probably going to order it.
