Not trying to be Mr. Wizard, just I have a hard enough time using the proven stuff!
There is some things I would never buy used and that is one of them. But that is just me

not knocking anyone but I personally stay away from any used rotating parts,Cranks,rods,pistons cams/lifters,rockers stuff like that.... I will Buy used: Ring and Pinion's, Tranny's cause I would have it rebuilt anyway...TQ converters are a Big NO-NO.

One thing..I personally believe used parts should never be priced more then 50% of original cost of the part no matter how little its used...used is USED in my book.

oh no !!!!...car has diaper...but you gotta stay out of this one..when we tested the car at Bradenton we held into it a little past the 1/8...little bit past the 660 mark we ran it and shut it down..came back and reviewed the race pack and we were running 184mph with a bunch if 1/4 track left...lol

Its been 154mph so far in 1/8 and that is Not pushing it and Very humid weather it would go 160mph same tune up...I am gonna give it a try in Atlanta this year and see if i can get A full 1/4 pass down the track....My goal would be to reach or exceed the 200mph mark....don't know... we will see how close we are with the tune up I have in it... I gotta a 28/32 on 1st hit with a 30/34 coming on 2 hundreds after...so the 1st hit is on off the tranny button and the other just as a come out. both are in real good and pullig hard way before 60 ft mark......its different I assure you...like someone pushing in on your chest.

Last year on the night runs I started losing clear vision of the track..I would come out of the hole really hard and when it started pulling hard it had a natual power vibration I call it and it would litterly cause me to blink out for a brief second...not all the way out just had to really focus on the track it was coming at me faster then I could register and at night.
