cheap fun

1880# front engine dragster (with me in it full of fuel at the line) with a 460 flat top motor, .038 quench, home ported d3's by Scotts page, 1.8 ex valves & rear sump (thanks Paul), a crower hydraulic cam, 211/218, with .484/.509 & the regular sled rockers. 34 degrees advance, torker 2 (thanks lem) an e 85 fuel 750 holley by classic motor sports, a 3800 ptc converter, & a home built powerglide transmission. all this runs 10. 24 @ 129 in 3600 foot of air & I shift at 5500, so it's real close to 350 rwhp at that altitude. it launches pretty good and runs a 1.46 60 foot too. All I do is check bolts, tire pressure & add fuel!
