mild 460 track times, small fish in a big sea
Went to Edgewater last night,lots of fun. Running a 1977 460 and c6 from a 77 Mark V. The following changes made to the motor. Stealth intake, Holley 80508SA 750cfm carb(straight from the box), Lunatti Voodoo cam( 207/213, 503/535, #10340700 ), Edelbrock rpm valve springs, Comp cams double roller timing set( early set, straight up ) high flow water pump and high volume oil pump.Mallory series 85 HEI dist. No internals were changed from stock, not rebuilt, just added to. Running in a 3300# Model A with a 9in rear running 3.55 gear (open) and 285-70-15 Silvertown radials( 31in tall about 10in tread). Trans is bone-stock ( Hughes torque converter 2000-2200 ) and ran in drive, foot braked.
Made 5 runs best was 14.042 @ 97.20mph, worst was 15.11 @ 94.89mph. My reaction times were horrible- best .148 worst .327 with one red light. This was my first time EVER on a track, wont be the last.
This should give newcomers like me some idea of what to expect from such a mild build. Have done lots of reading here, learned a lot. Thanks for all the info!
