    Wow, damn near the 330 on the rear tires and a nice shoftish landing.

    That would have to darn near going 8.20s in the 1/4

    How did you like the new 42, I think it runs every bit as nice as norwalk does

    That is pretty cool, I think he might run a little better not pulling the wheelie.

    So is there anyone out there with a tomahawk and power adder in a door slammer running 6 or 7's

    I believe there are two people building twin turbo aluminum blocks which I know one of them is an all-out build.

    Mine is a 535 with an F1r ProCharger. My goal is to dip into the 8's. Small tire..... estimated 1100-1200 HP range and 3500 lbs. This car will pass tech at an NHRA event, but it's MAIN purpose is a street car. (That's why I sold the GSX drag car.) Heck.............I'm even putting a stereo in it!!!

    Gary's car is outstanding for a NA car with Buick based power! Great job!

    Ethan,

    I like the way you think LOL... I was thinking the same thing last night.

    That 5.25 was not a perfect run and I still have one or two degrees of timing to try. Not to mention the car is geared for 1/4 mile runs.

    With the gearing now I think it can touch the teens. And if I really went after 1/8 mile exclusively, I would guess around a 5.10


    Thanks Rob! It's a 10.5x29.5 MT Pro Bracket Radial
