F.A.S.T Mach ET getting lower

Got this from another forum.Dave Dudek is still ahead but Lane Carey is cutting it real close.Wish I was there to see this race.Also check out that Pontiac rumor.

Would like to hear more details about the engines in the Mustang and Firebird.


Quote:
This afternoon at Lebanon Valley Dragway the FAST record has fallen.... Dave Dudek's Road runner qualified #1 with a 10.28 @ 136.7 mph. Dave now own's both the FAST mph and ET record.With 3 passes this afternoon Dave went 10.31,10.29, 10.28.

Terry Pennington's previous record holding Corvette was not in attendance.

Lane Carey of Delaware is also on a tear running his Mustang 429 to a new best of 10.35 @ 133.50. The NY air was right at 3100'.With more racing tomorrow look for teens with these new combos still being sorted out.

On a Pontiac note, Rick Mahoneys '68 Firebird was not ready to compete at LV. Rick is nearing completion of a new engine combo and should be at Martin Mi in late June. Rumor has it that 9's are being kicked around for the Mahoney/Tiemann effort.

Should be a great summer!

I may know Jack.........But don't know sh!t !

Bad *** car and lifting the tires off the ground with those tires is amazing.

I have a total of 6 passes on the engine trans combo. Went 109 in the 1/8, 3 mph faster than previous best, but only picked up 1.1 mph overall. I looking at the converter now, may be too loose.

Nope. They are reproduction tires available to anyone from sources like Coker Tire.

They have to use repro tires, but I'm pretty sure they have been doctored pretty good with traction enhancing compounds to make them sticky.

They are reproduction tires available to anyone. No soft compound or chemicals. They work best when burned down just past the wear bars. I run 15 psi, caltrac rear springs (no Bars) Rancho rear shocks. No traction bars allowed. The motor must use the Ford cast iron intake, D0OE-R heads, stock block, Cast iron exhaust manifolds through dual 2 1/2 inch exhaust, mufflers must be crimped not welded and must exit through tailpipes in the stock location.

wow I though for sure they would have been VHT'd heavily or something!

Keep up the great work! It's very cool to see these cars hauling butt with factory parts.
