    This is a pump gas 440/493, roller hydraulic, Eddy Heads, 3:55 gears , 3600 stall. I drive this car to the local track, run all night and drive home. I am still tuning and the car needs some Caltracks and a 950 carb. Hope to get a few more tenths shaved off in the next month or so.

    that is one beautiful car you got there!
    you did a great job on it.
    i got a 69.5 superbee goes 11.97 with stock everything,its a pure stock motor. 11.0 compression.
    i'd go with a 4.10 gear and a 4600 stall converter to wake that bad boy up.

    Vry nice Super Bee. Congrats on breaking in the 10's. I am building a 493 right now to replace the mild 440 in my 63 plymouth. I will be hoping for 10's myself. Ron

    Your car already is running a stout number .... curious, what are your 60 foot times?

    The strokers that run well on the street really need a decent suspension to get them to hook thru the 330'

    I love that car! 11.97 is phenomenal for stock. Is it an auto and is the stall converter stock as well?

    Retro my best 60 ft is a 1.57 and I average in the low 1.60's. Its all stock suspension with SS springs. I am running the 30 x 9 radial slicks on the street and strip. I know alot of NHRA stockers run the 30 x 9 radial slick and some run in the 9's. So I hope it will still hook but if it gives me trouble I can think about Cal Tracks. Thanks for the kind words and good luck with that swet Bee ! Ron

    The owner of the Vette is a close friend of mine. He ran his best time on the same evening.

    I have to come clean and tell you I recently had a 2007 Z06 Corvette 10.62@132 and decided to keep only one toy so I kept the Bee and away the Vette went. The manual transmission are too costly to run in these IRS machines.

    We are running almost exact times and many times it comes down to reaction times.
