Hey,way cool,600hp and short wheelbase :D That looks like it would have been a hand full on the big end. But very neat looking ride all the same 8)

Actually the BIG end was GREAT..it was the 1st 100 ft that was hairy..it wanted to wiggle and move around alot..the key was not to try to steer out of it..just hold steady and it would settle down as long as it didn't drift too much out of the groove....i ran it once in the 1/4 ( with 1/8 mile gear) had to lift once ( rev limiter) and it ran a 9.90 at 1.37mph..with qtr mile gear it probaly would have run in the 9.60 range,,i guess.. but it SUCKED down like a little magnet thru the traps..like i said if you could get thru the 1st 100 ft you had it made..best i can describe it was driving a creeper...lol :roll: :shock:
