Introduction: I'm 62 Years old, live in Lakeland, Fl. First raced back in the early 70's. Started racing again in April 07. I am having a blast!
I've parked the 1986 S-10 with the 408 SBC, 8-71 blower and an Enderle Birdcatcher injector. I was running this on Methanol. It was set up to produce about 16 - 20 lbs. of boost. (Calculated @ 920 HP). The truck was last run at the Bradenton track and even though it weighed 3350 lbs. with me in it, it did a 9.11 run. After the run, we realized that it had spun the damper off the crank and we finished that run with no blower boost. No telling what it would have run if it hadn't broken!
There is truly something to it when you get to the end of the track and you sit there for a second and say........... "DAMN"!!
For now, I am getting this '32 Bantam altered built and ready for the track. I still have the truck, but I am going to put that back as a street rod and race the altered.
The altered only weighs about 1700 lbs., so it should go fast enough to scare the "bejesus" out of me! :-)
Thanks, especially to my son and his family! He is doing the wrenching. My son's wife and kids are supporting this race team! Without all of their help, none of this would happen!
