The Jeep in my avatar......
Ran it at MMM a couple times. Stock frame CJ5, so I was a little scared to go full on, even out of the hole (at the time I was running a D44)
Went 1.7 60', so those of you who know, know how soft of a launch it was. Went out about 100' before going WOT. Went 109MPH to the 1/8. Let off after the 1/8 mile, just playing with the throttle a little. Went 10.70's doing that. I'll find a picture of it on drag radials to throw up.

Here's a picture of it before we left for the dragstrip. Tried the bar because I knew the short wheelbase of the 5 would be problematic, but the bar was too low and only hurt. It was unloading the suspension.

And a couple videos...

frdboy,
I'm making the switch to E85 this year, so I'm hoping for the best! Got tired of switching out fuels from pump to 110, so went up a little in compression, and hopefully everything works out between the compression bump and the bottle on pump E85!

Well I finally got to take it to Milan for the first time. What a horrible day!

My dam 2step wouldnt work so I was launching at 5500 and it would dead hook and fall on its face. No boost at launch=no fun. 60ft times were in the 2.28-2.43 range.

Truck was pig rich {10.1afr} and it wouldnt go into 4th gear under power.Had to let rpm drop and fight shifter to get it into 4th. That just killed the topend.Only picked up 7-8mph from the 1/8th...thats shitty for a turbo motor.

Best pass was a 13.11 @ 108mph

Goin back next week with a new clutch and a working 2 step.

Just sold my car, but it did run 9.73 @ 138.60 last Friday in 2700 DA air. Good air and some tuning I have no doubt there is a .50 in the car, It is going to the east coast where they have mine shaft air so it will be interesting to hear how it does.

Got my truck out yesterday, warmed it up and beat on it a bit down the street. Forgot how fun it was, but I still need a locker or something for my rear end.

I've had a 79 camaro for 14 years. Got an 11.50 with 200 shot on the old small block. Had it painted 3? Years ago, put the motor in something else, and just finished a 489 for it. Probably next summer before I bring it home from storage. Lots of fiberglass now, can't even lean on the front
