Man you build beautiful dragsters.

I'm guessing it will run somewhere in the low 4.60's to high 4.50's

Goodluck! Charles

David the car looks AWESOME!!! One of my friends has a similar setup with a 572 that made just under a 1000 hp and it ran a best of 4.69...

Your attention to detail is second to none!!!

Good luck this year!!!

I plan on going again tomorrow to test
I think convertor is a bit off shifted @ 7200 fall back was 6250, 1/8th rpm 6500 1/4 7050 rpms, which is a bit more fall back then I want and not enough rpm at the stripe. I am going to put my spare convertor in there and try it.

Plus side is that I had no problems at all, the car was deadly to the 1/8th for a tt wed night. The front suspension is awesome to say the least !! The new muncie dragway was very smooth !!

Just a Update

[email protected] [email protected] so far. Loose converter seems to be coming into play here, 60ft is only 1.106-1.11 these ET's should be showing 1.06-1.07 60's.

I hope this is the answer, B&M 8" Converter to tighten things up a bit.

Hey David, nice looking dragster. I see you ran at my home track on the 5/10 wonder if you were planning on being there 5/24-5/25? If so I'll look you up and introduce myself. We talked a few times on here awhile back. Mike
