You didn't mention if tranny had manual valve body or transbrake (good for 2 tenths) (tires - slicks?). I guess you probably run low to mid 7'S in 8th. Good news is you have good foundation to build on. Keep us informed.

Four sons & three 1969 mustangs, Life is GOOD !!!
My biggest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell all my cars & race parts for what I told her I paid for them !!!

this link has a bunch of calculators you can play with. Pretty impressive build for a 15 year old by the way. Keep it up!

Married to TARA so that makes me "TARA-fied"!
