I thought would get 4 or 5 launches. but typical Gateway Intl. Only 2 Passes.

First pass I didn't get a good burnout, hazed the tires, 60 ft 1.56 and I was out of it before the 330 mark, 1/8 mile 6.78 @ 83.17mph

Second pass, somewhat better burnout, (still getting used to the car) Still not a clean launch, 60ft 1.44, off the throttle just past the 330 mark 1/8 mile 6.41 @ 94.88 mph and still coasted through with an [email protected] 77.02

Both passes leaving at 3000rpms foot breaking. The goal was to break 6.5 in the 1/8 and it did that without effort, so I am pretty happy with the first time out. I think the car should easily go in the 5.9 to 6.0 range when I get some clean launches and run it all the way through. Can't wait till next Spring.

1969 Fairlane, 514 BT/Chevy port heads, alcohol, c-6, 4.57 gears, 3.5 exhaust, M/T streets

There have been many problems getting the car sorted out, (mainly due to my dumbass), so even though I only made two runs, it was nice to not to have to fix something. The car is getting closer.

Here's a picture from Saturday:
