Ha, definitely true, I do like the wheelies though leaving out with the slip tube. Oh and it don't get any better than mfi in my opinion, terminators are great on the naturally aspirated.

What does the average dragster with a Big Block weigh?

that depends a lot on if its a hardtail or suspended

Most hardtails at 1780-1850 most suspended cars are 1880-2000lbs
some lighter some heavier

a lot of guys forget to mention weight when they say what it ran.. weight to me is as good as a hp # 8)

I agree, David. It's just that it's easier for me to add HP than it is to lose weight. I like cheeseburgers too much!

I agree more often easier to just add hp, I am finding out right now more HP is a issue, my new car first time out last night would shake the tire every hit.
