best run 10.508 @ 1268 on a vp 5000 stall 3.9 gears th 400
10.508 sounds like a pretty good ET.
Care to share any of the engine build specs and any details about the car?
We'd love to hear all about it!
You definitely should bring it.
8.50 qualifying is a great show. Anywhere from 50-75 cars for 32 car field.
Favorite class to watch.
Many have seen it but maybe for the new folks. 462 iron block 2 speed and just over 1800 lbs. The shift lite is at 7200rpm in the video. Yes those are the grandstands at BG left side end when I back off the burnout 50% of the fun of a run is doing the burnout. Effortlessly
New combo is starting to come together. As I said a few months ago I need to get back in the Cat.
well the 455 has a 4.5 stroke 1/2 fill hard block and girdle and 13.5-1 cr stage 2 te,stage 2 intake 1250 dominator all the oil mods . the GS is full weight @ 4200 w/ me , i had a vp 5000 that i loved it on the street . i could make it sound like a stick car lol. 9" 35 splined rear end. ive had the Buhog for 36 years there's more in it, i haven't got it to hook yet ..... i love this car!!! its my kinda of race
It's not a 455 any more with a 4.5 arn in it...lol
^^ it is if it's an iron block.^^ in racing sanctioning bodies use certain parts to limit performance of a vehicle. Buick purists use the factory blocks.
Nice combos in this thread. Looking forward to advancing the numbers soon.....
In a car I owned... about 10.50 at 126ish, with high 1.49 60' times... never really hit it hard on the low ET stuff, as most of the time I bracket raced on a throttle stop. 87 Regal at 3150 lbs
In a customer's car that I built and drove... 9.04 at 149 with a 1.19 60' 72 GS at 3110 lbs
If Mike Erickson let's me take his car for a pass this summer, that number will be lowered considerably. Before adding nearly 300 HP, and doing a bunch of chassis work, that car ran 8.50's at 156mph with one of my Tomahawk race motors.- TA STG 3 heads with one of my converted Mopar intakes and a single 1250.. 82 Regal at 2450 lbs.
The new billet heads/intake with a pair of 1250's is a whole different animal.
Wallace calculators say 7.73 at 175, but I will believe that when I see it.
I have used the Wallace calculators for some time, and find them pretty accurate when a car can hook.
10.51 @ 126 mph, 1.42 60ft, 3450 lbs, 464 iron block, 3.42 rear, p/s & hydroboost brakes.
Real best et, or published best et.? lol

10.60s 1.44 60ft 123mph 464 stock rod,.stage 2 TEs,.11.25 to 1 comp ,.bullet solid flat tappet 259/267 630/630 110lsa,.1050 carb,.e85,.half fill no girdle, 4200 stall 410gear 3975lbs full 3.5in exhaust stock shifter
My GS10 old MOJO ran a 10.89 @122 mph with the air at 5800 ft.
NOT BAD for ald MOJO.
Not as fast as some of you guys but I am pretty happy with my skylark. Right lane, quicker than expected, fall air at new england dragway is always good for best ET's . home built 455 th400 3:73's
nice Bryan, hope all is good with you & we can all get together in B.G. in may
Currently sitting at around 20 seconds with 231 v6 stock 2.73 gears. Bow down before my power
