    Said my 14.69 would turn into a 14.44 at regular track level. I think this is where I'm stuck at until a lot more modification

    What's this 1254ft thing. Never heard of it b4........most tracks run 1320ft or 660ft

    The 1254ft mark is the start of the timing box that they use to calculate your mph. The final ET is still based on the 1320

    If you could hook it up your 60 ft could sure use more gear!

    Lucking out while crawling underneath the car in the dirt looking for the "add limited slip fluid" tag when I bought it was the first modification:D

    Never seen 1254 either....
    I think ALL racing should go 1000ft (like the pros) away with 1/8 mile but some real small tracks probably couldn't run 1000 and safely shut down. And I guess many would change gear ratios.

    Beautiful car, nice run... Sorry I couldnt come up that day but I'll be back up on the 21st to race with the Supercar Shootout guys. I'm coming right through Simsbury so if you want to caravan up let me know..

    You should talk to Ken about building you an 800 Q-Jet. Your car would like it, and as I recall it was worth .2 on my nailhead. I wrote it all up on the board here somewhere, we tested back to back at LVD

    Thank you, and I would caravan if my engine wasn't in pieces (self inflicted:D). My racing season is over, but best of luck on the 21st. I just pm'd Ken, so we will talk.
