Default Sleeper - AKA Who Needs a Big Block

Found this while trolling today, remember the Nova W2W built, and Hot Rod featured? This is alot more detailed.

I agree that wss an awsome change over, but it adds the the fire that b/blks can be built bigger,faster, and cheaper that s/blks. That car was built with very deep pockets and probably cost well over a $100,000.00 dollars. But they did achive a real sleeper for sure.

Zip.

Me and my two sons saw this car run in Milan Michigan track last year when we were up there racing in the LS1 race. It was impresive and I believe it ran in the mid to low 9's. It also broke an axle off the line or maybe the studs on the axles. It was pretty cool to watch. Real nice guy that owned it. They had a lot of cars in street trim that ran 9's and some in the 8's.
Awesome car though.

looking at the time slip the 60 ft was slow as a tank but that sucker really came on at the 1,000 ft mark...if they could get that 60 down to a 1.25/1.30 they will turn some 9..0's to some high 8.90's for sure.

but that slower 60 ft will allow it to hook better on the street therefore handing your butt to you...lol
