i saw the vids i ran out my front door on to the street and
went, "vvvaaaaaaaaarrrooooooooooomwwwwhaaaaaaaa"
now i have skid marks, ha haaaaaaa :lol: :lol:
Yes its a 496 BBC > The cam is a lunati solid roller with> 722/722 lift, 316-320 duration & 110 lobe seperation.
That must be a pretty popular/good cam. I think bjuice had that one or similar to it in his 511 . He was in the 5's with his.

Maybe this year I'll run it a few times in super pro.

No way I could drive my car footbraking if I had a transbrake...hell I couldn't wait to try mine out...I tested it at home.

Yeah its the same cam as what Bjuice had in his mighty 511. Great cam, my buddy Landon has the same cam in his Black 71 496bbc nova, it hauls the mail too.


Well Tod I'm caught between a rock and a hard place, I have no delay box in the car and I run in a footbrake class, I do use the trans brake allot though, to back up. Cp

Pro tree BRAKE?? mine has a COAN brake in it and I can back up without engaging it. I run PRO rather than Super Pro. You can use a trans brake but you gotta bottom bulb no delay boxes allowed.

Yeah Tod, I wished they had a no box class here so I could use the dam thing but they dont, just footbrake and super pro. They do run a heads up 6.0 class ocassionally at Holly Springs raceway In north Ms that runs off a protree - I'm thinking of doing that a few times this year.
