:D Got to the track today and got in the ten's on the first pass. Very happy, but traction was an issue, Would pull driverside front about a foot in the air then unload the rear suspension.

Thanks for the kind words!

The rear suspension is pretty much stock save for homemade flipkit and some home built slapper bars that I built the night before PAO and are made of the original leaf spring plate and .120" wall 2x3 with 4" inch long 1/2" bolts instead of rubber snubbers that I have about 1/4" preload on both sides (the bolts are directly below the front leaf eye). Definitely could use an antisway bar and some real suspension mods. I am thinking Cal-tracs should work good. I have a 10 point cage so shouldn't have much if any chassis flex. I am not too thrilled with my converter either my figures said the new gears should have gotten me [email protected]'s but I noticed it was at 6500 on the 10.64 pass. Seems like alot of slippage.

The 1.51 is a good 60 ft, it showed in the 10.64. Do you need an anti roll bar in the back or is it chassis twist ? Got it well in the tens though,good job.
I think if I could get it to hook better I could have gotten ~1.40's. Even on that pass it spun about 10-15'.
