Default First Test n Tune

Well, last weekend was the first time on the track with my car. I've been building this car for the last 6 years on and off. The track is only 380ft but its close to home. The car ran great had no issues but I thought my 60's would be better, I know that cam isn't the best for drag racing, it's just what I had. is it hurting it that much? here's the list. what do you guys think?

60' 1.60s 330' 4.51 72mph
67 camaro all steel except hood
9" 4:30 gears, 29x12 slicks
powerglide 1.76 pro brake 8"vert with 5200 stall
aerospace discs all round

BBC 496
13:1 srp pistons
scat forged rotating assembly
brodix racerite oval port heads
edelbrock tunnel ram two 600 holleys
isky hyd. roller 284 294 @ 50 600 lift 110 lobe sep.





Thanks guys, cam67152

I plan on upgrading the cam for next season I just wanted to get it out this year so I put what I had in it. I just thought it would 60' a little better than that! I'll see if I can post a video to see what you guys think. I see alot of guys on here are running a lunati solid roller with this size engine I think its the 50222 is that correct?
no I'm not running a vacum pump.

Very sweet lookin' ride! I'm with you, the 60's are kinda slow. IMO, with the long duration of that cam, it's going to favor higher rpm. I'd say it needs more gear and higher stall speed. Say around 4.56-4.88's and 5800 stall. I know that tunnel rams look cool, but I'd go with a single 1050 Dominator on a 454R......

In that case, it should have a lotta grunt and should 60 better than that. Was it spinning?

That's what I thought. maybe It's spinning more than I think?
