hey buddy, i wish i was in town to see that. i took out my 73 mach 1 to sac a few times and ran my mild 466. i can see from the other forum you are running nitto 555r's.

with the nitto nt05r's i did a best of 13.015 and i actually did it against the owner Dave Jr. in the other lane.

with my full slicks with the skinnies up front, i got a 12.690.

i haven't gotten use to how to launch a manual shift car yet cuz it ain't quite the same than a automatic with a trans brake.

when i get back, i'll have my 521 built and i can't wait to take her out to TNT out with you at the same time.

Nice car, sounds good. I'm sure you know you need slicks bad.
Speed shifting will improve ET, but not until you get traction.

i would assume with slicks and a hard launch he'll be able to pick up some MPH. when i finally ditched the regular street tires and went to slicks and a functional ignition box. i picked up 10MPH with the same motor with nothing else done.

just my situation though, i went from 98mph at the traps and then went to 108MPH with just tires and ignition box. (had a going bad MSD 6A, and then placed a STOCK duraspark module)

My fastest MPH for the day was 113.
I spun a rod bearing or multiple ones on the run after the one in the video which i am sure was better than 12.9
My motor is out now and i am going to rebuild it and hopefully come back stronger and faster. The heads and intake need to be ported better and i never degreed the cam.

since the bearings are spun on the rods, are you going to be able to have the crank welded and have all the rods reconditioned? or are you going to have to buy a completely new stroker kit?

if your buying a new kit, are you just going to go to a 557 kit?

Tune is good, i think. Ran good and everything. It seemed at the lower elevation though it dieseled a lot not sure what would have caused that.
