    I'm new.. Let me try this...

    I hope this is the right spot for this....I took my 66 stang to the track for the first time. Its got a 289 w/ .030 over forged pistons, stock rods, stock crank, crane 292 dur./512 lift, 1.6 roller rockers, canfield 2.02 heads, RPM intake, eldelbrock 600 carb, hedman long tubes, 4 speed, stock 8" (I know) w/ 4.10's and a mini spool on street tires(I going to get some slicks soon) . I don't know how heavy the car is. I was shifting at 6k and went thru the traps in 4th at 5500. Think I could hit the 12's with slicks? tell me what you think. Thanks Kelly

    I'M NEW

    How hard are you leaving and what kind of street tires? Slicks will find the week link. I agree a 750double pumper will help it breath and definitely run faster & quicker but it will also shake the tires loose when you open it all the way(mechanical secondaries). You need both, just don't go w/ too wide of a tire. I had a 74 Nova SS 4-Speed car 400 smallblk. shortrod, dish piston, doublehump's, muncie, 4.10 10bolt back in the 1990's that ran mid 7.80's. Goodyear 10"slick, thats all I could get at the time. Was leaving at 3500rpm & either smoke the clutch or bust a u-joint. Pop told me "LEAVE HARDER", play w/ the tire press., that did the trick. Keep up posted, ask ?'s. Kris

    I you'll look at your last 300' you can see you were slowing down eventhough you were quicker in all the segments in the first 1/8. Your carb is running out of pop, and will probably only get worse as you get quicker. Get a 650 or 750 double pumper Holley carb, it will put you in the 12's.

    Thanks for all the tips. I do have a 650 DP that i'm going to try. The tires are 255/55/17 nitto's, plain radials, no D/R's. I going to get some M/T 28/9/15 slicks soon (if I find used even sooner) 10's are to wide to fit in my wheelwell. My reation times do suck but hey, I haven't been to the track in like 12-15 years, give me a little seat time i'll be OK :wink:
    Here she is waiting for some body and paint work :P , Oh and I am the 2nd owner, the first was my father, he bought it new in '66.
