Thanks Guys,
I really haven't got a good run on it yet. My first run was Saturday for the show and I left kind of light (around 3000 rpm) and shifted at 6000rpm. My 60' was 1.42 1/8 mile was 6.54 and 1/4 mile was 10.32 at 130mph. The car has a 4:88 gear in it and it kind of stopped pulling just after the 1/8th mile. My second run was a lot better but they did not give out timesheets on that run, (I guess they keep them for picking people for the show.) Hopefully I will be able to see what she will really do in a couple of weeks.

Hey Chris You may want to do some calculating on a new ring and pinion for your rear if your gonna run 1/4 mile. Maybe 4.30 or 4.56 depending. I'll be running 4.56 with 33" tall slicks when my car gets done.
