    20180929_160240.jpg My personal best of 10.03 @ 133.69 mph. Still not happy with 60 ft but will have to do Finished for the year so I will be reading about what everyone else is doing. Sorry here is the car with a 451 cu.

            Nothing the matter with that 60ft for that ET. Car looks like all the numbers are inline to me.

                10.03 @ 133 are respectable #'s now
                must be a pretty good/damn respectable 451 combo
                & the car seems to work well too

                good luck with your quest to lower them

                I believe I can get it to 1.35 to 1.40. My coup would go 1.43 to 1.46 with just a 30 over 400 at 10.65 to 10.80.

                I have been shifting at 6700 rpm. Next year I am going to try shifting at 6800 to 6850 .
                I am going to try shifting at 6800 to 6850. I have been shifting at 6700. A friend says any good running 400 will like shifting at 7000. This engine does like the rpms. Also I will have the car weighed, scaled and aligned.

                I'm not being critical, I just looked closely at the time slip and noticed.
                Sheesh! I've been posting about my piss poor 60ft times and lack of traction for a while, but thanks to experienced forum members who actually care enough to help me out with advice, I have changed my mind about getting a triangulated 4 link and I'm going to a full Caltracs setup.
                Between that, my complete new front suspension, and new Wilwood disc brakes, and as soon as I can get the Hydramax hydraulic throwout bearing and HitMaster launch control installed, I should have a much better time at the track.
