Default Going to 1st Back half race of 2008 tommorrow

http://www.carolinadragway.com/


Going with a few friends to the 1st backhalf race tommorrow at Carolina Dragway " HOUSE OF HOOK" at Jackson S.C.

What makes this trip so interesting for me is ...the small block 383ci steel headed Alcohol blown motor ended up in the hands of some good friends of mine..they placed the motor in a mini- tubbed mustang 28x10 car...stock suspension type set up...

the car has just been re-done so its up in the air how it will hook....the motor is making about 1,000 hp right now at the current tune up..the air is still cool so it will be sucking down some good air

the mustang weighs 2550 without driver...would anyone like to take a stab at what it will run tommorrow ?

i will go ahead and say if the car hooks..it will run 5.38et at 128-130 mph range...

anyone care to place their bets......i will be taking video's and pics of each pass..

here was the motor when i had it in my 65 Nova

If it would hook, which i don't think it will. It could run 5 teens. By hooking i'm saying under 1.20 60' times. But with 28X10 tires i think it will run 1.25 plus 60' times and that will put it with good conditions at about 5.60.
The problem with roots type blowers is the HP is instant, where turbo's come on slow.
So i'm gonna say with a 200lb driver, car at 2750lb total, i'd be surprised if it runs better than 5.60 It could run a lot better if it hooks, maybe even closer to your prediction.

Hey Perry,
I remember that track from 40 yrs. ago when i first moved to SC. i couldn't believe a drag strip in between the N east/S west bound lanes on I-75 and even more unbelievable it's still there 40 yrs. later with the value of city land what it is today.
