    Yeah, it was a really tight race. Brandon messed up his last shift, or it would have been even closer. I got him at the tree, and he was pulling on me until late in the long end.

    My heads will be on soon. Looking for 10:3 @ 132+ with the stock motor and TVS1900 blower with a small GM OEM cam as soon as it get less than a billion degrees here.

    I think so man. I was going to post that number but will let it happen if it does. Being conservative and besides, it's hotter than heck here now. More to come though.

    I have only been to the 1/8 mile track once with my new pulley. The car ran good for the heat but I have a couple more mods to try and should be several tenths quicker this year.

    Re: 1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    Sounds good. I have a new pulley here and a new ported blower that was done up a lot better than the first. Also have our cam as well as a meth kit that may go on. Can you say 9.99 with a stock bottom end and TVS1900, full weight? There, I said it.

    Keith,

    I think a 1.45 or better sixty foot will be needed to pull off a 9.99 which I think can be done. It is the 6.46 or so 1/8 mile I have a hard time wrapping my head around. These cars are so heavy I can't see the car running a 6.50 flat and being able to make up the time on the back half. I do think that there will be some 6.50s run this year in the 1/8 mile albeit maybe 6.58 or 6.59. It will take perfect weather and a really well prepped rack track. It will be very interesting to watch things develop.

    It will be tough. Anyway, I'll certainly be happy with a 10 or 20.

    Re: 1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    IMO These cars will not be going into the 9's with a stock 1900 blower, bottom end, and no nitrous. Add some sauce and of course, or a bigger very aggressive motor combo with good fuel and lots of timing.

    Personally I don't see why you wouldn't put a bigger blower on it or nitrous with those goals.

    Why have more people not experimented with converters and rear end gearing?

    There are always those options and without adding gear or converter getting that 330' down is going to be HARD. Phx has two converters sitting in his garage for us.

    There's a local guy here in Arkansas running 9's in his coupe that's not on this board. He's selling his car for 70K I believe, all built and ready to roll. There are some fast ones out there that aren't on the forum.

    Thank you, very interesting you would say this, because that's exactly the point that was raised to Drum after he made his pronouncement that he has the fastest stock headed V in the world !

    take enough weight out of it, and im sure 9's are possible without nitrous or a bigger blower....but then it defeats the purpose of having a V....lol
