    Yes the teal is a little overwhelming when it is covering 99% of the car but if the driver is happy more power to him. We need someone in here translate some of the key points of his build. I would be really curious to know what he is running in the 1/4.

    I updated my new time in the timeslip database.

    14.25 for the Centurion this year! I need to run it in some better weather, and I'll get some 13 second runs in.

    Had a couple of good passes @ E-Town today.14.263@101.35mph & 14.223 @ 99.53 mph running a spare 770 Holley cause I killed the 870 Holley when I tried rebuilding it.:Dou:

    No traction problems at all.Must be the crappy 2:93 gears I am running in the posi.Can't wait to get some deeper gears.Guess I will find a 8.5 rear from a 350 car & build it the way I want.I am tired of being held hostage by the lack of & extreme cost of gears when available.Tom,I am not sure if I am out of the woods yet with the beaking up issue.Ran 3 passes today,broke up some on the 1st pass but not at the remaining 2 passes.I finally had a new 2.5 exhaust system with 2 chamber mufflers installed.The exhaust really woke the car up.I am having the 870 carb redone now,Looking forward to getting it back to see how it runs.

    Hey guys,

    Check this link. EEE (Kimson) car was destroyed by fire and he's pretty much screwed. He has been a bigtime asset to this big Car sub-forum and we need to help out. Thanks!

    Nice, Jim....11's!!! SaWeeet!!

    Was this at Gateway?
  15. Electrajim

    Electrajim Just another Jim

    Yes it was.
    It usually one of Gateway International Raceway's larger events.
    Sunday was pretty busy.
    Weather and track were great for horsepower!

    Unfortunately, I was the ONLY Buick powered V8 there.
    There was only 1 turbo 6 Buick.
    and this Chevy powered.

    ElectraJim saw me blow the doors off a WRX a month ago when we went to Gateway:laugh:

    I don't think the driver knew what the hell he was doing, though.

    Some WRX's can be tough!

    Adam and I both leave quite a wake when we blow by.

    What I wanna know is, where are all the Town Cars at? :eek2:

    ,,hydraulic competition shows I guess.

    Thanks guys,

    I have a 1967 Riviera non-posi with a rebuilt 430, custom dual exhaust, headers, and a few pounds shaved off here and there. What kind of horsepower do you think I can expect to get to the rear wheels after a complete tune-up? Thanks

    340-25% = 255. So if the 430 engine is still as healthy as new you will be around 250 hp.
