Went to the track today for the local Mopar day. It seemed like great weather for drag racing.

I knocked off a new personal best AGAIN! . I had plans on trying a few new things but , every time I take it out the car just runs faster as is.

Car - 68 Charger R/T (3870 with driver )
Mild 440 - with 727 ( TF2 shift kit) 3000 Stall
stock suspension with CE 3-way shocks
3.23 gear

New personal best is 12.55 at 107.85

I also set new best in 60ft (1.78) and MPH 108.89 but not all in the same run!!!!
That is a serious run for a mild 440 with a 3.23 gear. Was that at St. Thomas?
Congratulations on your excellent run at Sparta. About 5 miles straight West of me.
Still headed to Ruthven next Monday Dave?
A few pics



Yup st. Thomas / Sparta dragway

St.Thomas sure brings back the memories. Raced my Cordoba in the mid 80's there while living in Chatham. I once broke my rear u-joint about 3/4 way down my lane. Luckily I had CAA Plus and got it towed back to Chatham, rear of the car in the air facing backwards, with me and my buddy IN THE CAR! You'll never see that happen again.

Cayuga dragstrip is closer to me now, about 40 minute drive.
